GORD and SKM sign MoU for Commercialization of the First Qatari Patent Smart Air Conditioning System

Nov 07,2016

On the opening day of the Green Expo Forum, Gulf Organisation for Research and Development (GORD) signed an MoU with the Sharjah Kuwait Manufacturing Air Conditioning for Commercialization of the First Qatari Patent Smart Air Conditioning System - QCOOL

The innovative GORD’s smart air conditioning system, QCOOL, is a fully integrated and controlled all in one ventilating and air conditioning system that provides super-efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable cooling for open or enclosed spaces in moderate, hot or humid climates. Based on the application, QCOOL consists of a single or multi-stages that can dehumidify and cool the air to the required comfort level. The system utilizes recycled water and absorbent materials, which is extracted from rejected desalination brines. The environmentally friendly desiccant, GORD@DES, has a high affinity for water and capable of absorbing water vapor from their immediate vicinity. QCOOL is locally manufactured, licensed to Sharjah Kuwait Manufacturing (SKM), can be fully driven by waste heat and renewables. The 15 TR (52 kW) world’s first unit is installed and tested at GORD’s Technohub which is located in Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP). During the tested period, the system has shown 50% -75% reduction in energy consumption compared to conventional systems. QCOOL is a risk free & CFC free energy efficient cooling system that can shrink clients’ carbon footprints using cost effective means. In addition to enclosed spaces, typical applications include:

  • Open spaces such as football stadia, walkways, souks, parks and many others.
  • Healthy and efficient fresh-air to fresh-air heat exchange where the use of return air heat recovery is prohibited such as hospitals, health centres, laboratories, etc.

Greenhouses for leisure spaces or crop production is another potential application. The latter would reduce food imports and strengthen national and regional food security.)
