Fujitsu has just completed the supply and
installation of its ground breaking AIRSTAGE® multi air conditioning system in
the prestigious World Trade Center Changzhou, China.
No fewer than 166 AIRSTAGE® systems, consisting of 496 outdoor units and 2,142
indoor units, are now up and running in this major development and were
successfully in place in time for the grand opening.
The products were supplied from the FGCA Wuxi facility in Jiangsu Province,
which are both the production base for Fujitsu multi air conditioning systems
for buildings and the company's sales base for the Chinese market. FGCA was
awarded the order for the supply and installation of AIRSTAGE® to the World
Trade Center Changzhou because of its proven energy-saving performance, past
sales record and reputation for high quality installations. The after-sales
service setup, with its quick follow-up, was also a significant reason for the
contract being offered to the company.
"The AIRSTAGE® systems we supplied to the World Trade Centre can individually
adjust temperature for all of the 450 rooms in the building to provide a
comfortable environment. Also, by adopting the centralised control system,
collective centralised control of all outdoor units and indoor units is also
possible, which can optimise the air conditioning of the whole building and
reduce the consumption of electricity," says a Fujitsu spokesman.
China is the world's biggest market for multi air conditioning system for
commercial buildings, accounting for 132,000 sets (around 33 per cent of the
world market in 2008). The Chinese market looks set to expand even further as
building construction takes off at high speed because of the continuing
development of urban areas.
The next two years have been designated by the Chinese government as a period
of economic stimulation and public capital investment. This investment is
forecast to boost the market expansion of multi air conditioning system for
buildings. In China, improved quality of life supported by high economic
growth has resulted in higher demand for air conditioners which offer both
comfort and energy-saving performance in a climate in which environmental
issues and electricity shortage are increasing concerns.
Fujitsu has been developing large and small inverter air conditioners
excelling in energy-saving performance and comfort which are already proving
extremely popular in the Chinese market.
