Thermal engineering specialist, GRE, is playing a key role in the development of South Korea’s smart energy market following the £1m export of a fully bespoke ultra-pure water cooling system to one of the country’s largest smart energy producers.
The custom-built cooling system, developed for an SVC power transmission system to manage the efficient distribution of power to millions of homes, was designed, built, programmed and quality tested at GRE’s facility in Devon, UK. The project forms part of two separate systems recently developed for the South Korean smart energy market, and comes in addition to forward orders valued at £2m.
GRE specialises in the design and manufacture of customised cooling solutions for businesses across the globe in a vast array of sectors and environments. The precise temperature and cooling rate control from GRE’s bespoke systems facilitate critical functions in applications ranging from nuclear fusion and solar panel production to advanced technology for satellite development and advanced radiotherapy systems for oncology.
Commenting on the completion of its latest customised cooling systems, GRE’s Managing Director, Richard Booth, stated: “The ultra-pure water cooling system is a fantastic example of high quality British engineering making complex processes possible in varied applications around the world. The bespoke cooling solution is a first and enables our South Korean client to operate the SVC power transmission system with complete reliability.
“The shipping of the system is just the start of our work with one of South Korea’s leading smart power providers. We’re also pleased to announce that we are already working on a further commission, which is currently in manufacture, and additional projects are also under discussion. We have also established a productive relationship with a Korean agent, which puts us in a strong position to fulfil the requirements of the broader Korean market. We hope that this establishes a long-term presence in this part of the world.”
Booth added: “Our bespoke approach to engineering cooling solutions has seen our engineers working on a huge range of projects, largely because few businesses have the expertise or appetite to constantly innovate as we do.
“Our desire, drive and ability to solve complex problems means that we’re in constant demand. This has fuelled our growth, enabling us to expand our team to 22 personnel with three new engineers and a new director in the last year alone. With several exciting, new projects on the horizon, we fully expect to add further to our workforce over the coming months.”
