Optyma™ Control Panel Proves Effective at Facebook HQ office in Dubai. Cooling IDS team MENA Region has bagged a remarkable project for the Control Panels by providing an effective Turnkey solution for Facebook Dubai. It was a strategical win as we provided a fully equipped solution to Facebook’s demands by enhancing their Cold Room performance assuring optimum protection for the perishables kept inside their cold room.

We have recently commissioned our Optyma™ Control Panels (CP) installed in the cold rooms for the Social media giant, Facebook who recently opened a new 20,000 square foot flagship office in Dubai following its 264% growth in MENA in the past five years. This office space accommodates sixty employees, at its new home in Dubai Knowledge village.

The Project execution was done through Naser al Sayer & Co LLC (NASCO), one of our premium partners for Refrigeration Accessories & Controls for the region. By running successful Test runs at diversified tropical conditions after bundling Optyma™ CPs with the refrigeration Units; We could convince NASCO the Differential Factor in our CPs. NASCO agreed that in comparison to their earlier competitive alternatives & the locally assembled panels, Optyma™ control panels could offer their customers a comprehensive, price effective and unified solution for their Commercial Refrigeration requirements. Now NASCO bundles our Optyma™ CPs with majority of their Cold room to cater their customers with a complete energy effective solution.

For the FB project, Carlo Magno D Goloyugo, our Technical Manager supervised the integration between Danfoss Optyma™ AK-RC control panels and the cold room units to the customer’s BMS, which allows the global Facebook Technical teams to monitor the performance of the cold room remotely, accessible 24/7 round the globe.

“The value proposition our Optyma™ Control panel offers is well conceived by the customers now and today we have reached the doors of Facebook,” says Amal Vijayan, Sales Manager UAE region, “This is one among many prestigious installations in the region where Optyma™ CPs along with our Refrigeration Controls ensure to reinforce Danfoss as the reliable partner whose focus is always on energy efficiency.”

The newly upgraded Optyma™ Control panel offers a trouble-free installation, when combined with other Danfoss condensing units and components, whilst serving as a user-friendly remote monitoring solution when connected to the ProsaLink app. The energy savings this solution brings with its smart defrost and night-set mode, makes it the desired solution for future refrigeration applications.
