Annual competition facilitates the sustainable development of the industry through the recognition of energy efficient applications
Wuhan China, November 6, 2013 – The awards ceremony for the 11th Emerson Cup Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Design and Application Competition, sponsored by Emerson Climate Technologies and co-organized by the Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Technical Committee of Chinese Association of Refrigeration and the HVAC Branch of Architectural Society of China, was held at the 2013 Chinese Association Of Refrigeration Academic Annual Conference. Continuing to encourage best in class technology and design practices in air conditioning, refrigeration and heat pump water heater applications, the 2013 Emerson Cup competition has promoted the practicality and innovativeness of integrated solutions, while awarding more prizes for outstanding designs in the refrigeration segment.
Following a successful 10 year history, the Emerson Cup continues to recognize designers that incorporate Emerson’s world-leading scroll technologies professionally and effectively into air conditioning, refrigeration, and heat pump water heater systems. These outstanding applications demonstrate Emerson Climate Technologies’ capability in providing energy efficient solutions for air-conditioning and refrigeration applications.
“We are pleased to see that a great number of exceptional designs from professionals and students have emerged through the Emerson Cup, providing an opportunity to further advance technology and industry knowledge,” says Dave Bersaglini, Asia-Pacific Vice President of Air Conditioning Marketing and Business Development at Emerson Climate Technologies. Speaking at the awards ceremony, Mr. Bersaglini emphasized Emerson’s commitment to advancing China’s HVACR industry through the development of technology. “This year’s winning designs reflect the future of the HVACR industry by driving the development, promotion and application of advanced technologies, products and energy-efficient integrated solutions.”
One of the highlights of the 2013 Emerson Cup is the comprehensive application of Emerson Climate Technologies’ products in the diverse areas of the HVACR sector. Among the many award-winning submissions, design cases cover office buildings, residential areas, public facilities, supermarkets, convenient stores, and cold chain applications. Many of the entries utilize a wide range of Copeland Scroll™ compressor products and intelligent control solutions manufactured by Emerson Climate Technologies.
The Retail & Refrigeration Products award category of the Emerson Cup has been enhanced this year. In contrast to previous years, Emerson Cup now recognizes the design and application of refrigeration products, electronic control products, refrigeration scroll products, digital compressors, and ZW water heating compressors. This year, Emerson Cup has seen enthusiastic participation by professionals from the retail and refrigeration sectors with entries doubling in number over the last year. In addition, the competition has also added a teacher award in the Students Category to encourage the development of the educational course of the HVACR sector and the training of new professionals.
“I can say from my own experience of years of cooperation with the Emerson Cup that Emerson Climate Technologies has been constantly striving to improve the top competition of the industry,” says Mr. Xu Wei, member of the expert review panel, Chairman of the HVAC Branch of Architectural Society of China, deputy chief engineer of China Academy of Building Research, and president of the Institute for Building Environment and Energy Conservation, “Particularly, as a testimony to Emerson Climate Technologies’ efforts in combining application cases with business, increasing investment in R&D and driving the technology upgrade of the industry, the competition has further enhanced the reward to the Retail & Refrigeration Product award category.”
Through the successful organization of the Emerson Cup along with the considerable number of guests from the industry witnessing the event on site, Emerson Climate Technologies looks forward to the emergence of more outstanding designs to contribute to the improvement of human comfort, food safety and environmental responsibility.
