Danfoss Drives Power Project of the Year

Inverter Drives - AC Drives - Speed Drives - Energy Optimisation

Danfoss Water Slide

130VLT® Drives control pumps in award winning project, YasWaterworld, a new water theme park in Abu Dhabi.

The new park which opened in Abu Dhabi in January 2013, has been awarded the overall Project of the Year award at the Middle East Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) Awards 2012. Danfoss drives are used to control pumps in what the judges described as an “iconic project integrating the latest technology with innovative design and sustainable performance.”

A total of 130 Danfoss VLT® drives ranging from 1.1-90 kW, are used throughout the theme park to control pumps. Although the buyer initially requested drives from a competing supplier, the pump OEM insisted on using Danfoss’ high-end VLT® AutomationDrive FC 302 drives to control the pumps’ permanent magnet motors. VLT® HVAC Drive FC 102 units are also widely used in the new fun park in a variety of HVAC applications.

The MEP awards are judged by an independent panel of industry experts who award special achievements at project and company level in a total of 12 categories.
