Aubren signs contract to install free cooling upgrades for largest mobile operator in Algeria
Aubren, a manufacturer of innovative cooling products has been awarded a contract to undertake the supply and installation of free cooling upgrades for Mobilis, the leading Algerian mobile telecommunications company. The project will be managed in collaboration with Aubren’s Algerian partner MEGA COOLING Algérie; and will see Aubren DAQS range of mechanical and free cooling systems installed in up to 2500 of Mobilis cell sites in Algeria during the next four years.
The Aubren DAQS range offers innovative, highly energy efficient cooling solutions for Telecom/IT applications. The designs are built upon Free Air Cooling principles, incorporating highly efficient EC fan technology, absorbing 35% less energy than traditional HVAC systems. All product solutions are energy efficient, flexible, modular and designed to interface with all industry standard communication protocols as standard. The Aubren DAQS mechanical and free cooling systems have already been deployed across new sites constructed by Mobilis during the past four years.
Welcoming the news, Algerian Minister of Post, Information Technology & Communication Houda-Imane Faraoun, is quoted saying ‘We are very pleased with the development of this new project. Algeria has a strong and growing, ICT and telecommunications market with increasing demand for reliable and cost-efficient cooling systems. Free cooling is an economical and eco-friendly solution for air conditioning compared to mechanical cooling. Mobilis has been one of the leading companies that has been taking innovative steps to bring efficient cooling to its various Algerian sites.
‘We have been expanding our market reach in the middle east and this contract with Mobilis is evidence of our engineering and product deployment excellence. Mobile operators like Mobilis are actively seeking to reduce their operating costs. The idea that free cooling can’t be used in climates with high ambient temperatures is a myth. Recent changes to ASHRAE guidelines allow equipment to operate at higher temperature and humidity conditions and our solutions can provide up to 35% reduction in energy usage, whilst increasing the life of existing cooling equipment’, says Aubrey Nuzum Managing Director at Aubren
Farouk Kerkache at MEGA COOLING Algérie stated, ‘We have enjoyed a productive and successful working relationship with Aubren and look forward to collaborating with them in deploying the Aubren DAQS precision cooling products, in order to establish a state-of-the-art cooling solution for Mobilis’.
