Emirati woman fridge engineer honoured

DUBAI: Eurovent Middle East is to award its first honorary membership to Roudha Bin Bahr, the first Emirati woman to participate in the refrigeration and air conditioning category at WorldSkills.

Since competing in 2017, Roudha has since been very active in encouraging young people to turn to vocational and engineering education, while raising understanding for issues of the HVACR industry. She is employed by Sharjah-based Danfoss customer SKM Air Conditioning LLC.

Naveen Shivakumar, head of marketing & business development of Danfoss Middle East and board member of Eurovent Middle East said: “Roudha shows so much enthusiasm to raising awareness on our industry and promoting technical professions to the younger generation. We are extremely honoured that she has accepted our honorary membership and are looking forward to working with her, connecting our industry with the engineers, technicians and developers of tomorrow.”

Eurovent Middle East has also appointed Nerissa Deoraj as director of technical and regulatory affairs. Ms Deoraj previously worked at TAQEEF dealing with regulations and technical standards. Her expertise in this field constitutes a major asset to the association’s target to develop a full inventory of standards and regulations in use in the Middle East.
