Danfoss Industries reiterated its commitment towards supporting Climate Change Action.
Now, Danfoss Industries announces exchanging MoU with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore.
The MoU was exchanged between Ravichandran Purushothaman, President of Danfoss India, and Govindan Rangarajan, Director of IISc Bangalore.
This MoU is said to be an important step in the power industry.
Aiming to enhance the exchange of skills and technologies for the advancement of the Indian HVAC and R industry, this partnership aims to establish a research and training center focused on promoting the use of natural refrigerants or a low GWP.
The MoU, signed for a period of four years and renewable to five years, aims to provide training in best practices at various levels, including for teachers, students, field and maintenance technicians, technicians and practicing engineers.
The company will provide hands-on training using demonstration systems at IISc and on campus. The company aims to empower students and faculty to work and publish their research papers in prestigious national and international conferences and peer-reviewed journals. In addition, potential end users will be identified and awareness activities will be organized to showcase sustainable technologies for further knowledge dissemination.
Purushothaman said, “We are proud to support India’s green transformation by drawing from our rich global expertise and experience in enabling industries worldwide to do more with less. With our IISc collaboration, we hope to enhance R&D and skill development in the use of low GWP and natural refrigerants, as well as ensure that India’s workforce is ready to engineer a sustainable tomorrow.”
“Our association with Danfoss India will enable the research in cutting-edge clean and green refrigerant technologies and skilling of India’s youth to pursue HVAC&R related careers. Danfoss’ experience and domain knowledge in this field uniquely positions them as the appropriate industry partner for IISc. We are keen on working closely with them and promoting the usage of climate-friendly refrigerants across the country,” said Rangarajan.
Last month, the company had inaugurated an all-new center of excellence for green refrigerants at its state-of-the-art facility in Chennai, to encourage the sustainable development and use of low-GWP refrigerants. This marks a major green milestone in the company’s journey to provide Sustainable Cooling for all and will surely help in the green transformation of India’s Cold Chain sector.
The MoU was signed in the presence of Mette Frederiksen, Prime Minister of Denmark, Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, Freddy Svane, Ambassador of Denmark to India, and other key dignitaries.
