“We approach the development of our products with the eco-citizen in mind and want our solutions to convert energy economically and in a way that is friendly to the environment. In that regard, we are proud to support UAE’s strategic plans to generate clean energy, to achieve sustainable lifestyles. By utilizing our accumulated expertise, we have created water heating solutions with renewable energy sources that are ideal for the region, such as the heat pump water heater, using the unlimited energy source available in the ambient air temperature, or our thermal water heating systems that uses the sun’s energy. We look forward to introducing these ranges of products to the visitors at The Big 5.” commented Mazen Aldabie, UAE and Oman Country Manager for Atlantic.
In its continued commitment to energy saving initiatives in the region, Groupe Atlantic is also supporting two universities in the development and bid to win the best ecological dwelling championing the use of only solar energy:
Baitykool: The BaityKool team from Dubai, France & Palestine continues its efforts of innovation and knowledge sharing for Net Zero Energy Solar Buildings. The team believes that, through exploration and practice, students can acquire valuable learning experience in sustainable design. Moreover, Solar Decathlon Middle East represents an opportunity to develop, apply and demonstrate their innovation and technical knowledge in sustainable and self-sufficient building and to promote technology transfer towards the construction industries.
Al Bayt al Kamel: The American university of Ras Al Khaimah envisions to develop the concept of bringing solar-powered, ultra-efficient and self-sufficient houses that respond to the region’s socio-cultural values, as well as climatic needs; using the traditional architectural elements that were used to overcome the climatic hardships in the past.
The group is providing the teams with the Explorer and the Solerio Optimum 3 at the Solar Decathlon Middle East 2018 for them to achieve the best design. These two renewable energy water heating solutions are key examples of how users can save up to 70% in energy when compared with an electric water heater. Each of the products include improved features and the application of optimum comfort while optimising cost savings. (Product Specifications in Appendix)
“We are excited to support the university teams working on this project and to be a part of their mission, by providing them with the state-of-the-art thermal comfort solutions in addition to advice and mentorship by our leading team of experts. We wish all the teams the best of luck and look forward to discovering the award-winning concept,” Mazen Aldabie continued.
Since 2003, Group Atlantic has had a presence in The Big 5 international building and construction show where attendees have the opportunity to be exposed to the latest trends and innovations in the industry and to network with architects, builders, interior designers, contractors, and other industry professionals.
To establish closer bonds with its regional customer base, Group Atlantic also established an office in Dubai in 2016 to reinforce its commitment to the region.
