Memorandum: -
Reference your memorandum No.205-18/14 of 29th
January,1941 and N0.253/6/I3/A of 7th February,1941, the
latter containing a copy of the Political Resident’s
telegram Bo.A-32 of 4th February,1941.
I now have pleasure in submitting an approximate
estimate for installing fifteen water-rcooled "Remington"
Model 48 Portable Air Conditioners in the Muscat Agency An office of the British Government and, earlier, of the East India Company. .
The units are similar to those now on order for the Bahrain
Government.
I am una£l&, to get prices for water-cooled units
from other makers‘as Frigidaire, The General Electric Co,
etc., at the moment, but expect prices from America in due
course. They will be competitive. The American manufacturers
are largely occupied on munition work, and many of them have
discontinued manufacturing A.C.units, for the time being.
I attach copies of some quotations received for
air-cooled units, but I am not prepared to recommend them
for use in such climates as Bahrain and Muscat; as my
experience of these units (in Bahrain) gives me as yet no
confidence in them. Various makers assure me that they can
now produce an air-cooled unit which will be efficient in
all climates, and the Remington people are sending a sample
model for trial in Bahrain, during the coming hot v/eather.
I should like to mention that the prices given are
very approximate owing to the uncertainty of freight rates.
I am informed by Messrs. Gray Mackenzie that a 30/<i advance
on all B.I.freights will be made shortly, and further
increases are expected, as time goes on.
State Engineer,
Government of Bahrain.
