Dubai, January 9, 2014
Ireland-based Crowley Carbon, an energy services firm, has signed a Dh100 million ($272,000) deal with facilities management company Emrill to deploy its Carbon Control Centre technology in 800 buildings under Emrill management.
The company will monitor the energy usage in each from its Irish headquarters in Enniskerry. The announcement was made during the Enterprise Ireland Trade and Investment Mission to Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE.
Crowley Carbon will also improve energy efficiency in the Emrill buildings using its 80-strong range of products for energy, lighting, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning.
Norman Crowley, CEO Crowley Carbon said: "We are delighted that Dubai is embracing the significant financial and environmental opportunities offered by proactively engaging with the area of energy efficiency.
“Emrill's unique service offering will provide each client with a tailor-made energy management solution built from the world's most advanced energy-saving technologies, and we are confident that the combined experience and expertise of the team at Emrill and all involved in this pioneering collaboration, will guide Dubai to the next stage in its development."
Ben Churchill, managing director, Emrill said: "By identifying the vast, locked-in potential of buildings to minimise their impact on the environment and achieve unprecedented cost reductions into the future, we have opened the door to a cleaner, greener and more cost-effective way for businesses to operate, not only through the Middle East, but around the world."
Crowley Carbon - established in 2009 by entrepreneur Norman Crowley - expects to open a Dubai office in 2014, as well employ a further 20 staff in Ireland as a result of the Emrill partnership, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
