Danfoss recognizes Daikin Applied with EnVisioneer of the Year Award


BALTIMORE — Danfoss has named Daikin Applies the winner of its fifth annual EnVisioneer of the Year award competition.

A manufacturer of technologically-advanced commercial HVAC systems and part of Daikin Industries, Daikin Applied is using Danfoss Turbocor variable speed, oil-free, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors in its water-cooled Magnitude chillers to help building owners reduce electricity consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, and save operating costs over the lifetime of the chiller by minimizing maintenance.

Today, more than 3,000 Daikin Magnitude chillers have been installed around the world and are significantly improving energy use — consuming as much as 40 percent less, in comparison with the conventional chiller technology that was replaced or displaced.

“For the past four years, the EnVisioneer of the Year award program has been recognizing industry-leading or game-changing investments and improvements in energy efficiency and environmental responsibility,” said John Galyen, president, Danfoss North America. “We’re pleased to recognize Daikin Applied with our fifth annual award for its development of a chiller technology that has proven to dramatically improve building energy use and indoor climate.”

Launched in 2010, the EnVisioneer of the Year award competition recognizes North American end users, municipalities, building owners, or original equipment manufacturers that have introduced a new product, opened a new facility, or invested in a building or system upgrade within the past 18 months using Danfoss products or solutions to realize significant energy and/or environmental savings.

The competition is judged and the winner is chosen by an independent third party.
