The Danfoss Turbocor Oil Free Compressor has received the endorsement of the Solar Impulse Foundation as one of the top 1,000 solutions for protecting the environment. Already recognised as the world leader in oil free, magnetic bearing compressor technology for the HVAC industry, this prestigious award further validates the Danfoss Turbocor Oil Free Compressor as being a viable solution for reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions while also providing economic benefits to end users through an ROI in less than eight years and reduced energy consumption.

With this new endorsement, Danfoss is the second company in the world today with Soprema that has three products selected by the Solar Impulse Foundation.

“The market for highly efficient solutions is growing rapidly, partly because of the increased focus on energy savings and partly because of urbanization which creates a need for more commercial buildings. Turbocor demonstrates that bold technology strategies are instrumental in securing long-term growth and profitability in our core businesses,” says Danfoss President and CEO, Kim Fausing.
