New Temporary Building
New temporary building provides more testing space at Wozair.
Wozair has constructed a new temporary building situated in the lower section of the rear yard in Gillingham, following demand for more space after securing a large project. After a competitive tendering process, Warwickshire based Smart Space were appointed to build the temporary facility at the head offices, which now provides additional space for testing large Air Handling Units (AHU’s). AHU’s are designed to provide conditioned air that is filtered, cooled, heated, humidified or dehumidified according to customer requirements. Each unit must go through rigorous testing before it is packed and shipped to the client. Previously, the workshop had capacity for testing only one unit at a time. With the addition of the temporary building multiple units can now be tested simultaneously, resulting in shorter lead times. Wozair are thrilled to have had the option to extend their factory space to meet growing demand. Smart Space designed the 30m x 15m structure which stands 6m tall with a sloped roof providing extra height. The independently owned and British based company employs over 30 staff working closely with their customers to ensure all regulatory standards are met. Wozair initially planned to retain the unit for 3 months to assist with current projects; however, if demand for more space continues this may be extended.read more

Wozair Limited are pleased to announce that they achieved BS EN ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental) certification in April this year. BS EN ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements and provides a framework for organisations to follow to set up an effective environmental management system (EMS). The certification is relevant to all organisations, regardless of size, location, sector or industry and has many benefits including waste reduction and improved resource efficiency. Wozair already hold BS EN ISO 9001:2008 (Quality) accreditation and OHSAS 18001:2007 (Health and Safety) accreditation from the International Organisation for Standardisation and Worldwide Federation of National Standards, so are now delighted to have a third under their belt. Wozair are also planning their transition to BS EN 45001:2018 (Health and Safety) accreditation. This is in addition to their environmental policy which you can find on the website and participation in the governmental ‘Cycle to Work’ scheme promoting healthier journeys and reducing environmental pollution. Wozair are fully committed to protecting, preserving and restoring the Environment and believe that this is vital to their present and future success.read more
BTA for the Jules Horowitz Reactor
Wozair Limited have been selected to manufacture Blast Protection Dampers for the Jules Horowitz Reactor (RHJ) which is currently under construction at Cadarache in Southern France. The RJH is a Material Test Reactor (MTR) named after the 20th century French nuclear scientist Jules Horowitz and is expected to begin operation in 2021. The reactors construction was recommended by ESFRI as a replacement for the European Union’s existing materials testing reactors, which were all built in the 1960’s, and are expected to reach the end of their service lives by 2020. Blast Tube Array (BTA) will be provided for the programme in both single and modular sizes of up to 2440W/1300H and 2500W/1000H. The dampers are located on the MVK and MVL backup networks between the external AHU and between the exhaust fans and external fans. Blast systems will also be included on the fresh air ducting and exhaust of cooling units EIS2. The Wozair BTA is a technical revolution in blast protection, addressing several technical challenges whilst providing improved safety and protection. Years of research and development have resulted in an elegant philosophy to wave attenuation that breaks down the blast overpressure in a static device. The result is a lower pressure drop, no moving parts and maintenance free operational lifetime in an extremely cost-efficient product. Wozair Limited will be providing full documentation in dual-language for the project to meet French standards with definition and follow up folders for quality, traceability and workers qualifications. Documentation for the qualification of the BTA under the project conditions will also be provided. Wozair are thrilled to be a part of the project which is the largest new platform for irradiation experiments in support of Generation II and III reactors, Generation IV technologies, and radioisotope production.read more

Wozair (USA) Accreditation
Wozair receive Buy American and Buy American accreditation at their USA facility in March this year
Wozair are delighted to have received Buy America and Buy American accreditation in March this year at their USA facility, enabling them to bid and win their first project under this scheme for designing and manufacturing of bespoke heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) components for the Staten Island ferries in New York City. The project consists of manufacturing a range of Fire Dampers, Blast Dampers and Control Dampers for 3 x 320ft vessels. The compliance has created a host of opportunities for the company who also have manufacturing facilities in Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, the USA as well as their primary base in the UK. The Buy America Act is the name for a group of domestic content restrictions that attach to specific funds administered by the American Department of Transportation (DOT) and is part of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982. Separate and distinct from the Buy America Act is the Buy American Act, passed in congress in 1933 which only applies to “federal” procurement. It does not apply to DOT funded state/local projects because, while the source of the money for those projects is federal, such purchases are not made directly by the federal government. Both Acts seek to increase transparency and ensure federal agencies prioritise purchase of American-made goods in compliance with the existing law. It enables Wozair to bid for jobs directly on the US government portal. The penalties for non-compliance are serious and include civil or criminal False Claims Act Violations, suspension or debarment. Wozair are currently bidding for a number of exciting projects under the legislation which they are hoping to win and expand their client portfolio.read more

Wozair has completed its latest project for the Arabian Gulf with the delivery of a Package Air Conditioner Unit (PACU) for a Total platform, a first for the international company. This exciting first major project with Total represents many more exciting things to come for Wozair, with the opportunity for many more units of this type in the future. The first unit was delivered to Abu Dhabi and built to exact specifications and requirements supplied by Total to withstand the extreme conditions that offshore platforms endure in the Middle East, including high temperature and humidity in a salt-laden atmosphere. These conditions would see other supplier’s standard units failing to achieve their required task of supplying clean, conditioned air. The unit was fully painted and designed to withstand +50°C and 100% humidity. Total, as a global integrated energy producer and supplier, knew that Wozair would be the ideal fit for the design of this unit. Total focus on delivering economic, social and environmental benefits with their products across 130 countries worldwide. This commitment was the reason that Total knew Wozair was the best fit for the job and was sure to provide something that not only worked but exceeded expectations. Chris Cherrington, Commercial Director, Wozair, says: "Our company was chosen to complete this project thanks to our reputation for delivering high-quality units that are designed to last, something we have been doing within this region for the past 20 plus years. We think this latest project further cements that we're willing to go the extra mile to achieve our client's goals and produce something that works every time. Even with the challenging conditions that our unit will face, we're more than confident that it can do the job – high-integrity HVAC is what we do." As a privately owned international HVAC equipment manufacturer, Wozair specialises in the design, manufacture and installation of a variety of HVAC products, including heavy-duty heating, ventilating and air conditioning products. They employ a full-time, highly skilled team to develop new products and improved systems to ensure they're always on the leading edge of the market while remaining fully compliant with all certifications and international requirements.
