CAREL’s Polish subsidiary Alfaco Polska signed an agreement with the Warsaw University of Technology for cooperation in research and development in the fields of refrigeration and air conditioning.

“The basis for this cooperation is the development of innovative technologies, scientific activities and the dissemination and improvement of knowledge among students at the Warsaw University of Technology in the field of refrigeration and automation systems, as well as IoT,” commented Tomasz Andracki, CAREL Retail Business Development Manager – Poland and Baltics. “The refrigeration market is changing, and the Carel Group focuses on developments that respond to its needs. This cooperation not only involves development of technology, but also educational aspects. We see huge potential among students, which is why we are happy to share our knowledge and experience.” The partners expect that the joint venture, involving the design and construction of a research and teaching area at the Warsaw University of Technology, will be beneficial and respond to EU regulations regarding the reduction of high GWP refrigerants.

“During the next semester, we plan to build an educational water loop system using CAREL’s Heos technology, a high energy efficiency solution for commercial refrigeration. This will then be available to the teaching staff in the new academic year”, added Michał Grabowski, Project Manager Refrigeration at Alfaco CAREL.
