GUANGDONG, China, March 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Smardt, the global number one brand in oil-free centrifugal chillers today announced a new partnership with the well-established HVAC manufacturer Euroklimat (EK) – the largest European brand in China with 29 branches across the country. EK's sales network includes over a thousand dealers and a nationwide technical support and service facility, which operates 24 hours a day. EK's Guangdong campus includes some 750,000 square feet of manufacturing space with an array of certified test facilities.
EK CEO Lee Phong Ker said today: "In the past 7 years, EK has built a comprehensive HVAC product range and a strong market presence in China which provides an ideal platform for this world-leading range of oil-free magnetic bearing chillers – water cooled, air cooled, evaporatively cooled, split and modular."
Since 2002, Smardt has become the global leader in oil-free chillers, and has won recognition for its lowest lifecycle cost applications in data centres, hospitals, pharmaceutical manufacturing, hotels, airports, universities and office buildings. Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall in New York are just some examples. Smardt has over 5000 oil-free chillers installed across the world.
Smardt factories are in Germany, Australia, Canada, USA, China and Brazil. Regional service centres are located in Melbourne and Singapore.
The first oil-free magnetic bearing chiller in China was installed by Smardt in 2005. The new Smardt-EK partnership is now set to build momentum in the world's largest chiller market, driving energy efficiency up and lifecycle costs down.
Smardt CEO Roger Richmond-Smith noted: "The synergy in this new partnership is already exciting. The challenge of the world's largest chiller market offers an enormous growth curve as we harness our well-proven magnetic bearing chiller technology to deliver very big energy efficiencies. The built environment uses some 40% of China's total energy consumption for heating and cooling, and Smardt-EK is set to make a big reduction in this."
