Manufacturer joins forces with shipbuilding specialist Fassmer on natural cooling technology
Bitzer has signed a five-year collaboration agreement with shipbuilding specialist Fassmer which will see the two companies develop natural refrigeration systems based on carbon dioxide and Rankine Cycle technology, with organic rankine cycle systems providing energy from waste refrigeration heat.
Mathias Layher, Director Sales AC, Marine and Process at Bitzer said: ‘Fassmer and Bitzer pursue the same interests, which we’re now bundling for the purpose of developing eco-friendly solutions together for all kinds of refrigeration systems in shipbuilding. There’s a wide range of opportunities for partnering with Fassmer, and my team and I look forward to sharing our ideas and exploiting potential.”
Holger Fassmer, Managing Director of Fassmer, said: ‘Developing and using forward-looking, eco-friendly technologies is an essential part of what we do. Working with Bitzer and bundling our expertise and knowledge, we’ll be able to reduce CO2 emissions even further in future.’
