Provider of high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions Carrier on Monday announced the opening of a new technology development centre located at its Gurgaon facility.
“The new energy-efficient facility features state-of-the-art laboratory and testing facilities to aid in the development of Carrier heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) products; and will serve as an engineering hub in the region,” said Arun Bhatia, Managing Director, India, UTC Climate, Controls & Security.
The new set-up will enable Carrier engineers to work on upcoming testing standards and future energy efficiency levels as being laid out by Bureau of India Standards (BIS) and Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE).
Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of Unite Technologies Corp.
Giorgio Rusignuolo, Vice President, Engineering, Global Commercial HVAC, UTC Climate, Controls & Security said, “The new development centre in India directly supports those efforts, enabling our team to develop and introduce new high-technology Carrier products for India.”
The new lab facilities have multiple testing rooms with the capability to test HVAC equipment up to 22 tons and variable refrigerant flow products with lower GWP.
“Also, the test labs were built with energy-efficiency in mind and feature a modern control system to ensure optimal energy usage and energy savings, compared to traditional lab set-ups. The goal is for the centre to become an international engineering hub for developing products inside and outside of India,” Mr Bhatia added.
“Carrier has led and been part of green building movements across the globe while becoming founding members of green building councils in many countries including the United States, China, France, Argentina, India and Singapore, among others,” a statement said.— UNI
