INDUSTRY VIEWPOINT – ON AMMONIA TRAINING…

Carsten Dahlgaard, industrial refrigeration global marketing director at Danfoss

Peter White, director of Polar Pumps

Jason Clark, senior training consultant at the Grimsby Institute of Refrigeration

“The biggest challenge today is the lack of skilled people able to operate these systems [NH3/CO2 systems], from both the engineering and contractor side. The knowledge today on how to handle and build such systems is still very limited, although we have seen some improvements. Danfoss’ strategy is therefore to also help our customers by providing support with training.”

“50% of those we train are for ammonia and this seems to be growing. The industry is changing as refrigerants have gone from CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and now on to HFOs. People want a bit of security; ammonia has been here since forever and it will stay here forever.“

“The industry leads and we follow along. There’s no point us putting out training if there’s no industry out there wanting it... And as the industry introduces all of these natural refrigerants, the training sector will catch up and it will mingle in. I do think it is just a matter of time”.
