Danfoss announces intent to acquire compressor manufacturer BOCK to strengthen expertise in CO2 and natural refrigerants technology
Developing compressors for the natural refrigerant CO2 since 1993, BOCK is a global technology leader in the field of environmentally friendly, economical compressors.
With the acquisition, Danfoss adds the world's largest portfolio of semi-hermetic compressors for natural refrigerants such as CO2 (R744), hydrocarbons, and other low-GWP refrigerants to its already strong portfolio of oil-free centrifugal compressors, inverter-scroll, reciprocating and screw compressors, and condensing units.
According to the International Institute of Refrigeration, refrigeration technology and air conditioning take up about 15% of the electricity consumption worldwide, making the quest for energy efficient solutions ever more relevant. Intelligent solutions, combining high energy efficiency and low-GWP refrigerants, both natural and synthetic, are the road to sustainable refrigeration and air conditioning.
By acquiring BOCK GmbH, Danfoss takes a proactive approach to further the development and use of low-GWP refrigerants to help abate global warming and to ensure the competitiveness of the industry.
