After more than 1.5 years of development ECOTHERM presented the first version of this software to the professional audience. “Our partners can design solar, hot water and steam systems with ECOSIZE via a browser and even a tablet, create specification texts that generate ready-to-use offers as pdf and generate a technical documentation as well as a submittal,” explains Herbert Bremstaller, CEO and founder of ECOTHERM Austria GmbH. ECOTHERM has been active fore more than 10 years with its local partner Green Technology & Contracting Co. (WLL) in Qatar. One of the biggest projects of ECOTHERM in Qatar is the complete hot water and steam system for the Sidra Medical and Research Center in Doha. Sidra will be opened in the coming months and will be the first 7-star hospital in the world.

In fall 2013, the software ECOSIZE – which was developed by ECOTHERM – will be launched. With this tool, partners can design solar, hot water and steam systems and create appropriate specification texts via a web browser and a tablet. A user can quickly generate ready-to-use offers as pdf. In addition, a technical manual and a submittal can be generated. Already a preliminary version of this program was presented at the Project Qatar. “The visitors were particularly impressed by the simple design of the user interface as well as the easy and quick operation,” says Bremstaller.
