Midea VRF sets sail for The Maritime Silk Road
The G20 Summit is opened in Indonesia on November 15th. At the summit, Indonesia presented the latest construction results of the Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Railway(HSR), the first HSR in Southeast Asia. With the leading strength in the global HVAC industry, Midea MBT stands out among many brands to provide professional HVAC solutions and the most intimate services such as design optimization, equipment supply, electromechanical installation, after-sales maintenance, etc., sending "Midea Coolness" for Jakarta-Bandung HSR. Total 126 ODUs and 705 IDUs of Midea VC Pro were installed.
The G20 Summit is opened in Indonesia on November 15th. At the summit, Indonesia presented the latest construction results of the Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Railway(HSR), the first HSR in Southeast Asia. The 142-kilometer-long railway connects Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, with Bandung, the fourth largest city. The maximum design speed reaches 350 kilometers per hour, marking Indonesia's official launch into the "high-speed railway era". The debut of the Chinese-made high-speed motor chain units on the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail line has caused a sensation among the Internet users across Indonesia.
Jakarta-Bandung HSR is not only the first HSR in Southeast Asia, but also the first HSR project of China to land full system, full elements and full industry chain overseas. This Jakarta-Bandung HSR serves as the starting point of The Maritime Silk Road, which is regarded as a vivid refresh of deep cooperation for mutual benefit and win-win results together with neighboring countries by adhering to the principle of co-business, co-build and share. China Railway Bureau IV is responsible for the construction as a general contractor of the project. The project was officially started in June 2018 and is expected to start transport service in mid-2023.
It is worth mentioning that, as an exemplary project of China and Indonesia to build "One Belt, One Road" with high quality, this project adopted Chinese standards and Chinese products in design, equipment, materials and construction. There are also a series of products "Made in China" along with the appearance of this HSR.
The HVAC project is not only an electromechanical subcontract project but also an important equipment support of Jakarta-Bandung HSR. Jakarta-Bandung Railway is located in the tropical rainforest climate zone of Java Island. Influenced by the equatorial climate, the place is hot and rainy all year round with an average annual temperature of 27°C. There are many volcanoes and earthquakes in Java Island. The complex geological conditions and climatic conditions are challenging for installation of the central air conditioning system. The operator of the HSR needs a reliable and stable central air conditioning system to adopt the high temperature and high humidity working conditions without downtime and effectively maintain the constant temperature of the HSR building space.
With the leading strength in the global HVAC industry, Midea MBT stands out among many brands to provide professional HVAC solutions and the most intimate services such as design optimization, equipment supply, electromechanical installation, after-sales maintenance, etc. for a total of six building groups such as apartments, station buildings and rolling stock of Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Rail, sending "Midea Coolness" for Jakarta-Bandung HSR. Total 126 ODUs and 705 IDUs of Midea VC Pro were installed
Midea VC Pro VRFs have also been used in Dubai Expo and many other overseas projects. The multi-fluid chip liquid cooling technology can cool the electric control parts in time, the average temperature of the electric control parts can be reduced by about 8 degrees, which can maintain strong cooling in high temperature environment. In terms of corrosion resistance, the VC VRFs ODUs can still operate stably under the severe corrosion of salt pollution environment by simulated experimental test. And it is highly resistant to corrosion and fearless of tropical rainforest climate; In addition, VC VRFs ODUs can detect the refrigerant level in real time to ensure stable performance and avoid unit damage and poor performance; the precise oil control technology eliminates the problem of compressor oil shortage and ensures the smooth and safe operation of the system; duty cycle technology equalizes the running time of the compressor in each unit and greatly extends the service life of the compressor.
There are many unexpected challenges to develop overseas market. In addition to providing perfect HAVC solutions, Midea has provided a full range of attentive services for the Jakarta-Bandung HSR project. Since 2017, Midea has been following up the project from the design stage, construction to installation. Our service team overcame the time constraint, heavy tasks and other difficulties to ensure the smooth installation of HVAC equipment for Jakarta-Bandung HSR. We have provided our customers with a trustworthy whole process service.
In addition to facing the problems of large construction area and high population flow in the HSR station, Site 4, which Midea MBT won the bid for, containing six building types such as station buildings, apartment buildings, etc., is the most complex site for the installation of central air conditioning for the Jakarta-Bandung HSR. Moreover, in Indonesia, the procurement of installation materials for the project was restricted in many ways. All aspects had to be evaluated in the process of selection. The air conditioning design plan was also updated again and again, and refined over and over again. Finally, the optimal quality and efficiency of the HVAC installation project was achieved with the combination of multi-type design and multi-layout form.
Jakarta-Bandung HSR is one of the typical cases of Midea Group " Global Impact” and ” Direct to Clients". Today, Midea have realized sales, service network localization in the international market and formulated full camp layout from the core technology, original products to differentiated customization program. Relying on excellent products and quality services, Midea has achieved comprehensive improvement of quality, brand awareness and other aspects in the central air conditioning market in Southeast Asia and even around the world with following the "One Belt, One Road" better to serve a broader market.
