Comes in the wake of the success of Frigoglass Sustainability Award
Luvata’s Heat Transfer Solutions division, a manufacturer of finned pack heat exchangers involved in the design and production of air units for the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors as well as air conditioning, refilling and maintenance equipment for the automotive industry, has announced the upcoming launch of its ammonia air units –NH3 range of unit coolers – for applications in industrial refrigeration. The first official introduction will be a presentation delivered in Moscow in February.
The company claimed that it has achieved a number of successes, including the Frigoglass for Coca-Cola bottle-coolers supplied for the Turin Winter games in 2006 and the Beijing Olympics in 2008, as well as winning the Customer First Award. The prize-giving ceremony reportedly took place on November 25, 2011, during The Big 5 exhibition in Dubai. It further claimed that the most important of its recent achievements has been receiving the Sustainability Award given by its business partner, Frigoglass, with the award citation stating that Luvata had been recognised for its focus on new technologies that reduce energy consumption and improve efficiency, including its environmentally friendly HC & CO2 solutions, and for its global support of innovations in all key regions – Europe, Asia and America.
The sustainability award was given at the Suppliers’ Partnership Conference organised by Frigoglass, a player in the ice-cold merchandisers’ (beverage coolers’) market.
Upon accepting the award, Giovanni Simeoni, Executive Vice President and Deputy General Manager at Luvata, said: “Frigoglass is a particularly demanding partner that makes the sustainability of its products and services a pillar of its competitiveness, together with the giants of beverage that deem ecology a ‘must’. This is actual confirmation of the results we have achieved together, and Luvata is grateful and encouraged in receiving this award.”
