The selection of PowerCO2OL units from Carrier signals “increased acceptance of CO2 for large-capacity applications,” the OEM said.
Vestervig Fjernvarme’s 1.2MW heat pump, to be delivered by Danish CO2 specialist Fenagy, will replace oil and wood-chip boilers.
The OEM has also launched a new CO2 rack that can fit into elevators and through doorways.
Two heat pumps, from MAN Energy Solutions, will employ power from wind farms and seawater.
The course includes modules on functionality, design and service of R744 systems.
The investment is part of Beijer Ref’s transition from selling single components to also selling OEM products and systems.
Fenagy sees potential for CO2 heat pumps, heat recovery and refrigeration in sectors beyond food retailing.
The new courses cover ammonia, CO2, and how heat pumps can be used to increase energy efficiency.
The companies hope better education will help alleviate the lack of qualified refrigeration personnel.
