For many manufacturers of Airconditioners in Nigeria, lack of skilled local based personnel and unstable power supply are the bane of growth of the sector. However, LG Electronics appears to have crossed that huddle with the introduction of what it called superior and high technological applications in the manufacture of its latest series of airconditioners.
First, a few months ago, it introduced into the Nigerian market its Multi V III commercial Airconditioner – a commercial AC which it said had been proven to have three unique benefits, including higher energy efficiency, bigger capacity, and longer piping design for teeming Nigerian customers who would come in contact with the product.
The company on introduction of the product, said that the unit’s increased energy efficiency which receives a boost by inverter compressor V-Scroll and High Pressure Oil Return, HiPOR technology, delivers a coefficient of performance, COP level of 4.6, making it one of the highest in the industry. This is even when it is touted to reduce oil circulation from the conventional 2.5 to 0.35, making it consume less energy than its competitors.
However, last week, the company showed that it was not done with using new technologies to strengthen its operations as it introduced another version of the Multi-V III air conditioner.
Tagged LG Multi-V III Solo, the company said the commercial Air conditioner is the newest heating, ventilation and Air Conditioning, HVAC solution and an evidence of its drive to always be ahead in innovation.
Combining this innovation with higher efficiency, the Multi V III Solo delivers fast response cooling and space-saving smaller footprint. Expectedly, this cutting-edge attribute would make it gain significant market share in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
The Multi V III Solo also has three unique benefits of higher energy efficiency, eco-friendly and longer piping design for consumers, just like the last variant. The AC unit’s increased energy efficiency is also boosted by LG’s DC inverter compressor technology which traditionally, delivers a COP level of 3.5. With a total piping length up to 150 m and a level difference of 50m between Outdoor unit, ODU, and In door unit, IDU.
LG said that the Solo brand provides optimum solution for small/medium-sized building and can be connected to over 25 indoor units in any building.
Describing the power of technology behind the production of the product, General Manager, Air conditioning and Energy Solution division at LG Electronics West Africa Operations, Mr. Junhwa Jeong, said that “as a company with a great focus on producing energy-saving and efficient products, we are happy to introduce the Multi V III Solo into the Nigerian market. With this product in the market, we are in a better position to work with our dealers and business partners to keep LG in the lead as the No. 1 provider of smart and efficient HVAC solutions,” he added.
