Although in many applications natural refrigerants remained the ‘emerging technologies’ on display, leading companies like Mayekawa, CAREL, thermea. Energysystems and Itomic quickly turned their attentions to Korea to showcase their CO2 technology and share their success stories with R744.com.
“The thermeco2 HP has many benefits to apply in the industrial market. Most industrial processes such as food processing, beverage bottling, etc. need both heating and cooling at the same time. We estimate that we could sell more than five units in three years, conservatively speaking. Regarding China, we expect China’s market for CO2 HP to grow substantially during the next few years,” said Jae-lk Cho, Deputy General Manager at GS Neotek.
“We have already sold approximately 350 units in the Korean market. One of the key sectors is universities. Korean universities have student residence facilities on campus and therefore need large amounts of hot water. Out of a total of 350 units, 70% are the 30kW model that was exported to Korea from 2005. From 2010, we began exporting the large capacity Eco Cute. From 2010 to 2014, the ratio of sales for the 30kW and 80kW models is 30% and 70% respectively. The Korean market is now already shifting to the large type model,” said Morimoto from HARFKO.
