As part of this agreement, Danfoss Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Lab will be set up at the Institute premises to benefit more than 130 students over the next 3 years
Continuing its effort towards skilling India, Danfoss Industries, a leading player in the climate and energy space, entered into an agreement with Government Industrial Training Institute (ITI) Guindy to set up a Refrigeration and Cooling (RAC) Lab at the Institute premises for the benefit of over 130 students pursuing RAC course here over the next 3 years. This initiative will enhance the learning atmosphere and knowledge levels of the RAC students and trainers in government ITIs and rural community colleges in India to meet current industry requirements.
ITI Guindy happens to be the only Government ITI in Chennai and Kanchipuram which has a sought after RAC course, where over 45 students enrol every year. The current infra-structure, learning materials, curriculum and learning resources in government ITI require refinement and hence this Lab will immensely benefit students who are keen on acquiring hands-on industry training.
Danfoss continues to be a leader in the Climate and Energy Solutions given its expertise and experience in the sector for more than 90 years. With specialised solutions in the RAC sector, it will help students and faculty gain knowledge and experience on new innovations that are being introduced in the market.
“With the growth of infrastructure in the country, there is an increasing demand for HVAC solutions. While this is being addressed, it is imperative that India’s infrastructure story is sustainable. Energy efficient HVAC solutions are the need of the hour and for this, skilled labour trained in the nuances of energy efficiency is required. In this regard, we are happy to announce this initiative that is set to benefit a lot of students who want to pursue a career in the Refrigeration sector. It will play a dual role of bridging the skill gap in the refrigeration & air-conditioning industry and providing industry ready skilled manpower trained in modern RAC technologies,” said Mr. Ravichandran Purushothaman, President, Danfoss India.
The agreement will also provide for industrial visits to Danfoss facilities, technical sessions and special training programs, frequent visits of Danfoss representatives & experts to ITI to exchange ideas, Internships, Scholarships and other reward programs
