Al Eqbal Real Estate Development and Hotels has commenced the installation of decontaminating UVC emitters for the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems of the upcoming Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences in Amman - marking a first for the international hospitality industry.
In collaboration with Petra Engineering Industries Co. and Arab Technical Group-Daikin, germicidal UVC emitters supplied by Philips and Steril-Aire are being installed - featuring antiallergenic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, air purifying and pathogen reducing properties - to improve the quality of both fresh and recirculated air. The introduction aims to further ensure the health and wellbeing of guests, residents, visitors and employees upon the project’s planned opening in mid-2021.
In turn, Eng. Waleed Al Refai from Petra Engineering Industries Co. elaborated, “UVC lamps, which are an advanced disinfection technology, are commonly used across the healthcare, food processing and pharmaceutical industries to sterilize circulated air by deactivating airborne viruses, bacteria, mold and spores.”
Furthermore, Arab Technical Group Chief Technical Officer, Eng. Rahi Al Asad, added, “We are delighted that the prestigious Ritz-Carlton project has chosen to leverage our high-efficiency UVC emitters - thereby becoming the first hotel and residences to use this technology within their HVAC systems.”
Strategically located at the heart of the capital, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences in Amman will reflect the authenticity of Jordanian culture with a modern twist, on par with the highest international standards. The Ritz-Carlton Hotel will comprise 228 guest rooms - the smallest of which are 60 sqm - and include 34 luxury suites. The Hotel will also feature two upscale restaurants, one of which will be situated on the rooftop, as well as an elegantly-designed 1,000-sqm grand ballroom, which will help to promote conference tourism in Jordan. As for The Ritz-Carlton Residences, the property will encompass 90 private residences for purchase, each of which will consist exclusively of master bedrooms. Ranging in size from one to four bedrooms and featuring two exclusive penthouses, The Residences will offer full access to countless exceptional amenities and recreational facilities, such as an indoor swimming pool, fitness center, Owners Lounge and boardroom.
