Emirates Integrated Telecommunication Company “DU” needed to significantly reduce their energy costs, and sought a sustainable, efficient, reliable solution to do so. Having previously met with Akrivis, they were aware of the potential to achieve quick and lasting energy savings through the use of free cooling systems at their mobile sites.
DU had a number of key requirements for the partner selection in the delivery of this solution:
Our engineering team collaborated closely with the client to get a deep understanding of their exact needs. Central to this was understanding the challenging conditions posed by the local environment including humidity, extreme heat, and sand particles. With final specifications confirmed by DU, a demo unit was delivered and installed at a DU selected site near Dubai International Airport with our team providing on-the-ground technical support and software customisation to further maximise the energy savings.
Following the successful trial, DU selected Akrivis as their exclusive free cooling solution provider and placed an order for 1,000 units to be delivered in 6 months. A demanding and rapid turnaround time in terms of manufacture, assembly and delivery.
All units were delivered and successfully installed by the client within 6 months. With a short, 3 year ROI, Akrivis has provided a sustainable, energy efficient, free cooling solution to DU, saving 20% of their energy bill and 5,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

Emirates Integrated Telecommunication Company “DU” needed to significantly reduce their energy costs, and sought a sustainable, efficient, reliable solution to do so.
The predicted energy saving from the HVAC unit was 88%, but the observed energy reduction was 80% which translated into a 35% overall site energy reduction. The difference was due to the economiser, which was not taken into account for the predicted calculations.
