About Us >> Our Experience
Honolulu Seawater Air Conditioning, REI, and its affiliates are experienced leaders in energy conservation and the conception, design, operation and management of renewable energy systems. The company's engineers, as well as its operation managers and corporate leadership, are among the most experienced in their field.
Our personnel have direct experience in developing District Cooling in the United States and Europe, including Europe's largest seawater air conditioning project in Stockholm, Sweden. The Stockholm system includes approximately 80,000 tons of air conditioning load and continues to expand. Present Honolulu Seawater Air Conditioning's personnel have recently undertaken the responsibility from preliminary design to construction and complete market concept of two Dutch systems, both located in Amsterdam with an aggregate capacity of more than 35,000 tons of cooling.
Honolulu's district cooling's deep water engineer, Makai Ocean Engineering, undertook the deep water pipe design for the Toronto, Canada, and Cornell University systems. Makai Ocean Engineering was also the design engineer for the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority's (NELHA) seawater pipes, located in Kona on the Big Island, that were successfully initiated over 20 years ago. The seawater pipes have since then been expanded and extended.
