Al-Salem Johnson Controls showcases rental solutions at Hajj expo

The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah and related government entities work to ensure the comfort of pilgrims by offering diversified services. These include air conditioning and cooling solutions, which are especially important now that the since recent Hajj and Umrah seasons and Ramadan have lately coincided with the summer season.
The Coordination Council of Local Hajj Operators recently organized an exhibition under the theme “Equipping Hajj with Integrated and Supportive Services.” A number of service providers from different sectors participated in the event. Al-Salem Johnson Controls (YORK), a leading multi-industrial company and provider of integrated solutions that incorporate HVAC equipment, fire and security systems, building management systems and controls, participated in the exhibition.
The company has successfully offered its services in the past years to huge outdoor projects that witness overcrowding, including at the Two Holy Mosques.
During the exhibition, Al-Salem Johnson Controls presented the company’s services and solutions to the participating companies, highlighting its rental solutions.
The company is expanding holistic rental services of the air conditioning units and electrical power generators as it believes that the rental services are the ideal solution for cooling the Two Holy Mosques and the pilgrims’ camps.
It is also ideal for peak pilgrimage seasons when extra air conditioning units are needed, as well as for periodic maintenance, emergencies and abrupt breakdowns.
With warehouses located across Saudi Arabia, it is easy for Al-Salem Johnson Controls to have an immediate response to HVAC requirements by supplying air conditioning units and electrical power generators.
The company’s specialized team provides immediate integrated solutions that include initial diagnosis of the situation, installation of equipment, operation and maintenance as well as the dismantling and removal of equipment after the rental period is completed, which may vary between long- and short-term rentals based on the requirements.
Al-Salem Johnson Controls has been successfully operating and maintaining the world’s second largest cooling plant for the Holy Mosque in Makkah, one of the world’s largest cooling stations for the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, the Zamzam station, the hospital in Mina and the Jamarat area.
The company has previously provided its rental solutions to the Mataf expansion project at the Holy Mosque, the expansion of the Jamarat area, the Saudi Project for Utilization of Hajj Meat, and the Mina tents project.

Land Rover, Terry Grant smash world record

Land Rover and international stunt driver Terry Grant smashed a world record at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, with a two-wheel speed run in the new Range Rover Sport SVR. Grant’s 2:24.5 run up the famous hillclimb broke Grant’s old record for a mile traveled in a car on two wheels, set in 2011, by more than 30 seconds.
Grant flipped the Range Rover Sport SVR up on to two wheels with the use of a ramp, before hitting speeds of up 60mph on Goodwood’s famous hillclimb as he set the new Guinness World Record time.
Grant snatched the record in a dramatic last gasp attempt on Sunday afternoon, having attempted four runs earlier in the weekend, none of which Grant managed to complete.
The Range Rover Sport SVR is a 575hp performance SUV, capable of 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 174mph — with four wheels on the road, at least. The Range Rover Sport only required one modification for the world record run, a tweak to its differential to allow the car to deliver more power to the two wheels on the ground — both of which were pumped up to 90PSI.
Grant is a multiple world-record holder, with 25 Guinness World Records already to his name, and with this latest record, Grant has bested a 2:55 run that he himself set at Goodwood in 2011.
Stunt driver Grant said: “It really shouldn’t be underestimated how difficult a two-wheeled speed run like this is; you are always fighting to keep the car balanced right on the edge, as it tries to tip either one way or the other. You need to be conscious of everything, from the camber of the road to the strength of the wind. Thankfully, conditions were excellent and the Range Rover Sport SVR was the perfect precision tool for the job.”
The world record was not the only amazing Land Rover moment of the Festival of Speed, as 70 historic and important Land Rovers took to the hill in what was the largest batch of cars to ever tackle the famous route in one go. From 1948 to 2018, the parade of cars celebrated 70 years of one of Britain’s most iconic automotive brands.
