Godolphin Stables in the United Arab Emirates trains race horses valued at $400,000,000. Godolphin places a high value on performance as well as on the well-being of the animals. Consistent with its investment in horses, Godolphin implements cutting edge technology to attain its goals. Godolphin hired ACT to create oxygen controlled environments in the stables that assured the benefits of altitude training while managing the unique needs of horses.
The local conditions in the United Arab Emirates are difficult. Desert sand storms, high winds, intense heat, and high humidity can all lead to challenges to altitude simulation. All these problems had to be addressed to assure that the system’s molecular sieves would function in such a challenging environment. The health and safety of the animals was of course paramount. ACT set up monitoring and control for CO2, methane and ammonia while providing a precisely controlled environment of a simulated 9,500 feet of altitude.
Utilizing patented PSA air separation devices, specialized filtration, automatically phased ventilation, , and carbon air quality filtration ACT was able to effectively regulate the air inside the stables. ACT also provided Godolphin with an uninterruptible power supply system, remote power failure alarms, and an easy-to-use digital control system that monitors everything from oxygen level to air quality. After seeing the system ACT created for his horses Sheik Mohammed, Godolphin’s owner and the head of state of the UAE, ordered ACT altitude systems for his personal use in the palace in Dubai.
