Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 28 June 2022 – Hyperganic, an AI-based engineering platform company with offices in Germany and Singapore, today announced that it is partnering with Strata Manufacturing, a UAE-based Advanced Manufacturing Company, and EOS, the leading supplier for responsible manufacturing solutions via industrial 3D printing technology, to build the world's most efficient residential Air Conditioner (A/C) system.
The International Energy Agency projects that energy demand for air conditioners will triple by 2050 — equivalent to adding 10 new devices every second for the next 28 years. Even today, A/C units account for 20% of global electricity usage.
The strategic alliance between the three companies will help solve this environmental challenge through advanced engineering and digital manufacturing.
The partners will combine Hyperganic's Algorithmic Engineering approach with the industrial metal 3D printing process pioneered by EOS, and Strata's implementation of 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.
With sustainability as the focal point of the collaboration, the companies plan to show project updates at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP28 to be hosted in the UAE in 2023.
The three partners sealed the collaboration today at an official signing ceremony witnessed by H.E. Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, United Arab Emirates Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and H.E. Sara Al Amiri, United Arab Emirates Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology.
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.
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.
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.
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. 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. 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.
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.
Through this project, we will work with Hyperganic and EOS on building the advanced technological manufacturing processes necessary for the product's success. This partnership is a real leap for Strata, which is based on investing in 4IR technologies and building new avenues for industry. This aligns with Strata's strategy for advanced industries and helps realize the national vision for developing the industrial sector and conducting partnerships based on innovative solutions.
