What’s been happening in Europe this month?


Our Italian branch, Nolo Climat, has been showing its passion for fashion by maintaining momentum from their work at the Milan fashion week in September. Our specialists in Italy proposed a heating solution for an exclusive footwear brand’s showroom, in one of the most exclusive locations in Milan. After a thorough inspection of the building, our FH185 DV models were identified as the optimal heating solution for the showroom and surrounding spaces. Four heaters will remain on site until December, along with diesel tanks that are equipped with a remote level management system that allows fuel levels to be viewed through a mobile app.


For our friends in the Netherlands, a new product launch has been the order of the day! The FD40 Series 2 building dryer has now been added to our Dutch hire fleet, completing the product’s unveiling across the continent. At Andrews Sykes, we are always investing in our fleet by supplying new equipment to stay ahead of our customers’ requirements. This unit is one of the most cost-effective building dryers available on the market and is easy to manoeuvre into almost any location. We’re delighted to announce that we have already received our first order for the FD40 Series 2 – the first of many, we hope!


Preservation of artwork is very important, and Andrews Sykes Climat Location understands this. Our French colleagues provided a dehumidification solution that instantly improved damp conditions inside a high-profile museum. In order to accelerate paint drying times, our FD25 dehumidifier units were used to tackle high humidity levels in the gallery. These dryers were the perfect solution for addressing high moisture content in the air, due in no small part to their high extraction rate. As a result, our team helped eliminate the prospect of the gallery’s grand opening being delayed.


Our team in Brussels has been working with a building company that specialises in social housing projects and care institutions. We hired an almost unprecedented number of FCU30 fan coil units which have been connected to the client’s existing system in order to heat the whole building. Our decisive action ensured the building had sufficient capacities for both internal heating and hot water, at a time where our contact was seriously concerned about the potential implications of a shortfall.


In Switzerland, we’re delighted that our products have been chosen to support critical medical research. One customer experienced a horror emergency in the build-up to Halloween, when the fan inside one of their existing air treatment machines exploded without warning! As a result, the study was paused because doctors couldn’t continue their work or remain in the building without adequate ventilation. Fortunately, our team sympathised with the situation and hurried to site to ensure the research project could recommence as soon as possible. Within hours, the ventilation system had been replaced with one of our ASF950 fans, allowing healthcare professionals to pick up where they left off!
