Trane provides advance air systems to all 29 red-line stations



Trane, a business of Ingersoll Rand has provided AHU’s and Fan coil units to all the 29 red line stations of the recently launched Dubai Metro.

To help reduce traffic and save commute time, Dubai residents now enjoy a new and exciting mode of transport – Dubai metro network, the longest automated driverless metro system in the world and the first of its kind in the Middle East.

In addition to ensuring passenger comfort and safety on the trains, the metro operators went to great lengths to ensure that passengers would be cool and comfortable on the busy platforms.

The Red Line, comprising 29 stations, including 24 elevated (by means of a viaduct), four underground stations and one at ground level, are fitted with 305 Trane air handling units and 1,120 fan coil units.

The CLCPEuro air handling units and HXCA fan coils create the best possible indoor air quality at the stations by controlling temperature, humidity, odors and sound levels. All Trane CLCPEuro units are designed to be energy efficient, at the same time providing a sustainable and reliable air-system to the Dubai Metro for years to come.

“It is imperative for us to meet the highest standards of safety and customer satisfaction for Dubai commuters. By working with Trane and using its systems, we adhered to the standards and desired quality regulation needed,”

said Eng. Ahmed Mohammed Sharif, Electromechanical Systems Manager, Construction Dept, Rail Agency (RTA).

“Energy optimized CLCPEuro will save energy and reduce the carbon footprint of this mega project,” said Ghassan Freiwat, Acquisition Director, Middle East, India and Africa. “The lower energy consumption of the system will contribute to a lower total cost of ownership for RTA, while exercising environmental responsibility. In addition the excellent indoor air quality will ensure the comfort and well-being of the commuters.”
