Danfoss recently broke ground on a new state-of-the-art laboratory for the testing of HVACR equipment. The new center also will facilitate training and serve as a research and development center for future innovation.
The 22,000-square-foot “Engineering Tomorrow Application Development Center” will be built in Tallahassee, Florida, expanding the existing facility that houses the engineering and manufacturing of Danfoss Turbocor oil-free, magnetic bearing compressors.
The center will include three sets of psychrometric rooms with the capability of testing air-conditioning systems, including residential equipment and rooftop units from 2.5 to 50 tons and air-cooled chillers up to 150 tons.
The groundbreaking ceremony took place at the Danfoss Turbocor Compressors facility in Tallahassee. Local officials, including Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and Leon County Commissioners, as well as representatives from the Economic Development Council of Tallahassee/Leon County, Leon County Research & Development Authority and Florida State University, were onsite to mark the occasion.
