GOTHENBURG, Sweden, December 14, 2010 - Swegon, the Scandinavian market leader in the fields of air handling and
indoor climate, continues its remarkable European expansion: The Spanish bank
BBVA is going to equip its highly innovative and sustainable new headquarters
in Madrid with an energy-efficient Swegon-solution to achieve a healthy and
comfortable indoor climate for its employees.

The project

The new headquarters of the Spanish bank BBVA is already iconic: The
project of the world-renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron will cover an
area of 100 000sqm above ground.

The environmental role model

The building is emblematic from an architectural perspective and
innovative thinking: The complex will hold LEED Gold certification
(Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) and is already a paradigm of an
environmental friendly and sustainable high-rise building around the world.
The project envisages energy savings of 30%, a 35% reduction of greenhouse
gas emissions, 30 to 50% lower usage of water and 70% savings in waste

The indoor climate solution

By proposing its thermal wheels, integrated controls and advanced comfort
module technology, Swegon plays an important part in the environmental
objective of the BBVA complex. Swegon is going to supply the BBVA complex
with 7500 PARASOL comfort modules and 50 GOLD air handling units. Both
products are Eurovent-certified which proved to be one of the important
factors of Swegon's success. "Swegon is a big international player which
convinced us with their competent and trustworthy organisation here in Spain,
experienced and service-minded resources at the factories in Sweden and the
professional management of Western Europe," says Luis Gutiérrez de Cabiedes,
Installations, Maintenance and Sustainability Director of BBVA, and adds:
"Swegon's products are of highest quality and innovation. They met our strict
demands regarding energy-efficiency and Life Cycle Costs without any

The company behind the solution

By winning the BBVA project Swegon continues its success rate. Just
recently Swegon bought the Italian manufacturer of chillers and heat pumps,
Blue Box, to also include cooling technology to its range of expertise.

The Swedish company almost tripled, its turnover within six years to
280Mio EUR today and can certainly be regarded as one of the major European
players in the segments of air handling and indoor climate already - but
Swegon does not stop there. "We have ambitious expansion plans, secure and
supportive owners and an extremely competent and engaged organisation," says
Trevor Young, Manager of Swegon's business unit Western Europe.
