Aermec and T Clarke offer remote testing by video link
AHU and chiller manufacturer Aermec UK is working with building services contractor T Clarke to offer witness testing by video link.
The facility is part of the company’s ongoing environmental strategy to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and deliver tangible savings for customers.
“We have been planning for some time how we can minimise travel for our employees but also assist our customers who have traditionally travelled to the factory in Italy to monitor Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT),” says Paul Lawrence, MD of Aermec UK.
The provision of a video link for customers who do not wish to travel, ensures that the testing of their equipment can still be observed and discussed real-time. The test screen will be monitored and there will be a live link into the test cell enabling customers to fully participate, view data and discuss any questions as they arise.
Video-conferencing also offers greater flexibility and the opportunity for more customers from the same company to engage in the tests without incurring flights and hotel costs. And with the outbreak of Coronavirus, the new service is also proving timely for customers practising social distancing and cutting down on business trips.
“We decided to offer video-conferencing facilities sooner, to alleviate customer concerns and help those whose travel is restricted. The technology is available and it makes sense to use it,” adds Lawrence.
