Sustainability in the air, and a new engineering office for Hyperganic at Dubai
As part of a new project that aims to support UAE’s ‘Energy Strategy 2050’, Hyperganic, EOS and Strata will bring their respective expertise to build what they describe as “the world’s most efficient residential Air Conditioner (A/C) system.”
Hyperganic’s AI-based engineering platform will be leveraged, EOS’ industrial 3D printing technology will serve at the manufacturing level whereas Strata Manufacturing, a UAE-based Advanced Manufacturing Company, will support with its digital production lines. The targeted result will be a residential A/C unit that is not only 10 times more efficient, but can be sold cost-competitive compared to conventional A/C units, a press release says.
This strategic alliance plans to show project updates at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP28 to be hosted in the UAE in 2023.
Hyperganic used the event to announce the opening of its Dubai Engineering Office at the beginning of July. Hyperganic’s UAE team, which is expected to grow to 20 engineers by the end of 2022, will work closely with Strata’s team in Abu Dhabi and the EOS team on the implementation of the project.
On the occasion of the signing, H.E. Dr Sultan Al Jaber said: “In line with the directives of our leadership to support and develop the national industrial sector, the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology aims to develop a national industrial ecosystem able to create the kind of partnerships that develop and manufacture innovative local products. This exciting new technology is an ideal example of innovation driving sustainable development and creating a positive economic impact.”
He added: “The partnership between Hyperganic, EOS and Strata demonstrates how the UAE’s manufacturing sector can develop and launch homegrown products that are globally competitive and cater to demand in domestic and international markets. The development of competitive, marketable products is facilitated by an ecosystem of enablers, incentives and unique advantages that will empower the growth of the UAE’s industrial sector and deliver a positive impact on the national economy.”
H.E. Sara Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Future Technology, said: “This positive partnership represents a great addition to the UAE’s industrial ecosystem and reaffirms MoIAT’s role in attracting global partnerships, especially industrial partnerships between UAE companies and global, innovative companies that deploy advanced technology and 4IR solutions. The partnership is in line with the leadership’s vision of transforming the UAE into a global hub for industries that rely on advanced technology.”
“Our mission at Hyperganic is to use technology to help solve humanity’s toughest challenges,” said Lin Kayser, CEO and Founder of Hyperganic. “The UAE is a melting pot of the world’s best talent, and the country’s vision for the future is refreshingly clear in today’s world. When we came to the UAE, we found alignment on goals, brilliant people, and the right partners. I couldn’t imagine a more suitable place to collaborate on this important project.“
“At EOS, we are purpose-driven. Sustainability and responsible manufacturing lies at the heart of our company,” said Dr. Hans J. Langer, industrial 3D-printing pioneer and founder of EOS. “This project can only succeed when engineering and manufacturing are deeply integrated. We will engage with our UAE-based partners to significantly advance the state-of-the-art of technology further.”
Ismail Ali Abdulla, CEO of Strata, said: “This partnership is an inspiring model for industrial pioneers in terms of benefiting from the nation’s attractive industrial environment and the advantages and capabilities provided by the UAE, which stimulate partnerships based on innovation, creativity and expansion in modern industrial sectors. Here, I must commend MoIAT’s role, which crafted a conducive environment for investments and building partnerships, especially through the Make in the Emirates campaign; an open invitation for investors, manufacturers and innovators to invest in the UAE’s industrial sector. “
