IOR enters into collaboration talks with Pakistani peers

Discussions are now underway to expand sharing of knowledge and technical expertise to incorporate new approaches to energy efficiency and refrigerant

The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) has entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Pakistan HVACR Society (PHVACR) that could lead to future collaboration work focused on expanded sharing of knowledge and expertise.

An agreement reached between the two organisations is intended to extend access to publications and events in order to better tackle pressing challenges and meeting changing standards concerning best practice in refrigeration and air conditioning.

An online library of technical information concerning refrigeration that has been drawn up by the IOR will be provided to PHVACR via the arrangement. IoR members will also be encouraged to play a role in upcoming events such as the 2019 Building Services Expo and Conference in Karachi.

Both organisations have said that they hope to expand the collaboration moving forward with discussions ongoing over possible opportunities for providing cooling and air conditioning services.

IOR president Stephen Gill welcomed the announcement of the MoU as a means of facing up to the challenges posed in a changing cooling market at a time where concepts such as ‘clean cold’ are being researched to create potential new approaches to building services design.

He said, “By collaborating together, we will make the best use of the wealth of technical information the IOR can share especially on the rapidly changing world of refrigeration safe practice, energy efficiency and refrigerants.”

“I am equally pleased that PHVACR is so enthusiastic about sharing their events and activities with IOR members and look forward to working with them more closely. This is an exciting development.”
