Additionally trainings for partners and planning offices are organized for the ECOTHERM Academy. The employees of the Support Center are also responsible for commissioning and maintenance.

Fair highlights
One of the magnets on the ECOTHERM booth was the ECOTHERM high capacity heat exchanger with patented free floating turbulator rods. It can heat up the water from 12 to 60 degrees Celsius in only one pass within one second. This saves up to 95 percent space in the boiler room and reduces the operating costs.

ECOTHERM presented its innovative photovoltaic system PV-iFIX for the first time in the United Arab Emirates. The system can be installed without any tools and without damaging the roof. This saves up to 70 percent of the mounting time.

Another highlight was the beta-version of the design software ECOSIZE developed by ECOTHERM. The program allows for example to design hot water systems. At the beginning of 2013 the first module will offer an easy and fast configuration of ECOTHERM electric hot water heaters. The further development is already planned.
