Saudi Arabia, 10 November 2015 - Only in Saudi Arabia can you find a district cooling industry projected to grow at a mind boggling 27% annually.  In fact, the HVACR industry in the Kingdom, as a whole, is forecast to grow 14% on average every single year till 2020.

The HVACR sector is a vital component of Saudi Arabia’s $732 billion construction project spend planned or underway in the Kingdom. The country is building some of the boldest and most iconic mega projects in the world – economic, healthcare, financial cities, metros – and an extensive range of commercial and residential centres, industrial and housing projects and mixed-use communities.
