Idea & vision
How a small idea grows into something big Successful ideas often start with the courage and creativity to break with the traditions and laws of one‘s own field. That is precisely what we, a group of visionary engineers, did for indoor climate-control technology in 1980. The approach was to develop air conditioning units for swimming pool halls, which would adapt to the requirements of the customer – instead of adapting the customer to the existing equipment, as was then standard. With further revolutionary objectives: ready to plug in. Energy-saving. All components in a single unit. For the most difficult field of application there is for climate-control technology – air conditioning of swimming pool halls. And today this is still precisely the right approach for forwardslooking indoor climate-control technology. The continuation of our story is simple. Many other fields of application and disciplines of climate-control technology were added to the swimming pool halls. And with our original idea and the systems created around it, we have be-

come one of the leading suppliers of innovative indoor climate conditioning technology in all of Europe. The secret of our success? Consistent teamwork and a good working environment. Both internally and externally. For we are more convinced than ever that modern climatecontrol concepts must take into account the requirements of all parties involved: of architects and planners, system engineers, investors and operators. The result is a system technology that takes all aspects into consideration – both technical and emotional – and thus really gives extra value. For every individual. In every phase of cooperation and use. Short and sweet: we create a good indoor climate.

Why we offer our customers everything and they still only get the essentials. True luxury is reduction to the fundamentals. That is why our customers only receive as much technology as required, no more and no less. To this end we measure them up precisely and then, based on requirements, offer exactly the equipment modules to suit the planner, the client and the building. Function and cost optimised. The individual modules are adjusted to each other and can be modified for „special solutions from the series“. The idea behind it is as simple as it is enticing – to create equipment with a long service life! From the draft to the after sales service. With competent advice, customer care and the necessary enthusiasm for your challenge. As required, the equipment works with single or
multi-stage heat recovery, „adiabatic“ evaporation cooling, and an extremely high degree of efficiency. In short, Menerga uses the resources that are available to save on additional equipment that would otherwise be necessary, and the resultant costs. Experience does indeed show that summa summarum our solutions are considerably cheaper, and/or result in enormous savings potential when the investment and operating phases are taken into consideration. We will be happy to help you calculate your potential savings.

Our integrated system
How we create a good indoor climate before our systems are installed One of the key factors for successful cooperation is trust. Especially when dealing with something as personal as a good indoor climate. And trust requires a strong basis. We also refer to that colloquially as Menerga Technologies with a guarantee of success: 1. We only make promises we can keep. We prefer to ultimately deliver a little more than what we initially promised. 2. We think, develop, advise and build with a long view. The result is indoor climate-control technology with a future â€“ from a conceptual, functional and technical standpoint. 3. We do not solely consider the technology, but also keep the costs in mind. Long-term and efficient.

Costs and advantages
The advantages for you: We work intelligently from the very start, and are thus able to realise solutions that consider not only the investment costs, but also the subsequent costs â€“ which in sum generally amount to many times the investment. It is especially the case with indoor climate-control that the calculations take place at the end. In particular the costs for additional peripheral equipment required, energy consumption and operating costs offer considerable savings potential, and are therefore increasingly important for the decision. Quite rightly. Our recipe for success: Listening, consideration, forward thinking, producing solutions and tailoring our equipment series to these requirements. Admittedly, that sounds simpler than it is. It also requires a great deal of experience and corresponding technologies. We have all that, and we apply it consistently, from the building-specific design of the systems to subsequent optimisation of operating and investment costs. You have our word on that.

How we simultaneously ensure a good climate for the environment and a good climate in rooms The demands made on forwards-looking indoor climate-control systems are continually increasing. The solutions to these demands frequently limp along far behind the desired ideal. It is good when there are already concepts that can fulfil many desires, even future ones, today. And it is excellent when the basics and ideas for these solutions already have a long tradition. The pleasant effects of sunshine and nice weather become particularly apparent and obvious when sun and pleasant daytime temperatures are lacking for an extended period. What is important is that the mixture is balanced and stays balanced. When looking to the future this is everyone‘s task – as the results of recent studies and the prognoses derived from them are alarming.
For all those involved with indoor climatecontrol technology this is therefore a challenge with many opportunities and unknowns. A central challenge for us since we began our work. The solutions and approaches today: equipment systems with the highest degrees of efficiency and maximum environmental relief, and thus the successful combination of comfort and active climate protection.
Precisely when indoor climate-control technology and climate conditions are key issues for you – whether as a client, investor, planner, installation engineer, architect, operator or manufacturer of air-conditioning systems – it is becoming increasingly important to carefully consider all the possibilities and alternatives. In short, with the climate-control of indoor areas, you are actively deciding today on the effects on the natural climate development of tomorrow. With the unknown variable, that we are hardly in a position today to estimate many effects and their results, but can only make guesses at these.
The good thing about this is that many of today‘s requirements can thus be impressively fulfilled, and even exceeded. Looking to the future, we want more. To this end we are researching and developing further innovations and improvements. Welcome to the table – for the future of the climate.

How we use our energy to allow our customers to reuse theirs In addition to innovative technology, the development of our intelligent air conditioning systems has another focus that motivates us: efficient energy use and energy recovery. And we will use almost any means to achieve that end. Saving cost-intensive resources, e.g. through heat recovery. Dispensing with expensive peripheral equipment by using system technology, and the associated gains in useable space, using extremely space-saving compact systems. And of course the compellingly low operating and consumption costs, thanks to intelligent control and regulation, and the highest degree of efficiency. In other words, Menerga equipment families make a decisive contribution to a relaxed atmosphere between investors, planners, architects and system engineers. As everyone profits from the high innovation standard of Menerga equipment.
In the indoor climate-control trade jargon, our innovations are referred to as recuperative/regenerative heat recovery or â€žadiabaticâ€œ evaporation cooling. In a word, unbeatable energy-saving cooling. A milestone in indoor climate-control technology. From an economical and ecological standpoint, this principle is currently at the absolute forefront. And the tendency is increasing. It is not without cause that we have been distinguished for this with international prizes. In summary one might say, more with less.

How we convince our customers to invest their money with a smile The idea is as simple as it is alluring: For us, investment costs, running operating costs, convenience and operational reliability form an indivisible unit, whose common goal is good long-term indoor climate-control. An obligation with far-reaching consequences. As we want architects, clients, planners and system engineers not only to profit from our know-how, but also to feel comfortable as our partners. By using our systems to provide palpable advantages and added value for every partner. In plain terms: for architects, free space is created from a planning perspective by reducing space requirements and dispensing with various additional equipment.
Clients, contracting parties, operators and users can enjoy a perfect indoor climate and low operating costs every month; planners can offer complete, space-saving equipment with a friendly service partner; for system engineers, our immediately-operational, compact equipment represents uncompromising reliability, with a contact partner who is there when it matters. We think these are adequate grounds for a satisfied smile.

GRÜNDUNGSGESCHICHTE / VISION SERVICE and sales
How we ensure that the indoor climate is right in every situation By operating everywhere you need us, and having the right solution to hand. Not every service concept is the same. This becomes apparent at the latest when there is literally a malfunction after midnight, a fault in a piece of equipment from a third party or if specialist knowledge is required that goes beyond the service knowledge of the typical manufacturer. So far so good. Not so with Menerga. Because you can count on us in precisely these cases, and many more – just as when it is a matter of the typical maintenance and inspection visits.
It is our understanding, especially in the service area, that we set new standards here, too. This is where the wheat is separated from the chaff, as the quality of cooperation is measured particularly in operation and with the reliability connected with this. In concrete terms, this means that we have woven a concept around the topic of service that offers a solution for almost every requirement and desire – and rather a little more.

Air-conditioning and climate-control technology Ventilation and air conditioning are the trend. Not without risks and side effects at times – since in addition to the constantly modified indoor climatic conditions that place ever higher demands on the climateconditioning of production sites, administration buildings, halls, hotels, restaurants, schools etc., matters such as operating costs, investments and environmentally friendly technology are hot topics and have become important factors in the decision-
making process. Our statement on this: „Rightly so!“ Our solution, systems that are designed to meet these requirements, and more! It is nice when the basic design already has everything you need. We do the rest – without risks and side effects, of course. Further references on the subject of air and climate-control technology can be found at www.menerga.com

Air conditioning in public swimming pool halls Welcome to the house speciality at Menerga. Since the beginning we have been developing and offering solutions that lead the way in matters of reliability, operating costs and the technical brilliance of the systems. For full-blooded engineers like us, the swimming pool hall poses an especially exciting challenge: to reduce the technology to the minimum and place it in the background, and simultaneously to ensure reliability, comfort and the right climatic conditions for relaxation. And, naturally, to do this
with environmentally friendly technology and the lowest possible operating costs. We would not be Menerga if our systems did not function according to these very criteria. And we saved the best for last: we improve this know-how with every system, and hence always offer an innovative solution. We look forward to seeing what challenges you can set us.

Air conditioning in private swimming pool halls
Private Swimming Pool Burgrieden, Germany
Air conditioning in private swimming pool halls Every private swimming pool hall is an expression of the ownerâ€˜s culture and attitude to life. And this very requirement is what needs to be underlined and implemented by technology. In the foreground here are peace and quiet, relaxation and pleasantly warm surroundings, in combination with environmentally friendly technology, operational reliability and low energy costs. From a technical perspective, the
epitome of multifunctionality â€“ at Menerga it is the foundation of the entire system technology. What counts is the degree of your relaxation, that is the yardstick for our success. And our view is: the higher the better. Further references on the subject of air conditioning for private swimming pool halls can be found on the internet at www.menerga.com

process and climate cooling
Zoo Hellabrunn Munich, Germany
Process and climate cooling When it comes to production, the top priority today is that the wheels all mesh perfectly, or better, that perfect sequences and general conditions are prerequisite. There is no room for margins of error. This means the highest reliability and perfection in matters of indoor climate-control and the associated parameters. And this is precisely where Menerga starts, with parameters precisely coordinated with the process, taking into account the flexibly variable framework general conditions such as high

Compact chilled water units Cold water production is has a number of fixed associations in the heads of architects, planners and technicians. The recooler as a limitation or concession on the part of the architects, high space requirements, cooling towers, open air cooling and mechanical coolers, compression, high operating costs and high requirements for the regulation of the systems. But here, too, there is a solution from Menerga, a way to get cool and stay cool. The most modern compression technology, optimally coordinated system components that
dispense with cooling elements on the roof and thus constitute a significant bonus, both architecturally and in terms of the reduction in noise emissions. To this are added such benefits as the extremely space-saving design and naturally cost-saving operation. And all this with a contact partner â€“ before, after and during construction.

Heat recovery from water
CamboMare in Kempten, Germany
Heat recovery from water We like to call this technology the Menerga Recycling System. The advantage is, it is easier to say, and everyone who uses it or is interested knows what is meant. The idea is simple, we use the heat from the waste water to heat up the fresh water. It is an overwhelming success! Up to 90% of the energy required for conventional water treatment processes can be saved in this way. The environment is grateful,
and so are the account books. This can also be used without reservation for treating drinking water, as it has passed a DVGW inspection (Deutsche Vereinigung des Gas- und Wasserfaches e.V. - German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water).
