UAE-based total facilities management company Farnek, has been officially accredited as an approved Energy Services Company (ESCO) by Dubai’s Regulatory Supervisory Bureau (RSB). The scheme was set up to give building owners, developers and managers added confidence when contracting ESCOs. Now they can be secure in the knowledge that the accredited companies have the necessary qualified management and staff and are on a sound financial footing. And in addition, specific to Farnek’s case - a successful track record of consulting on many energy saving projects throughout Dubai.
The decision to approve Farnek was made by an accreditation board which assessed them according to set criteria, such as experience, capabilities, financial strength, HSE and equipment. “This is official recognition that we are fully equipped to identify, design, deliver and finance energy reduction for building owners and developers as we believe this creates more costeffective buildings and a healthier environment,” said Markus Oberlin, CEO.
