Danfoss makes contribution to Florida State University to further engineering research on high-efficiency technologies

Contribution from The Mads Clausen Foundation and Danfoss Turbocor Compressors will support continued collaboration with FSU for research in energy efficiency opportunities in the HVACR industry

Danfoss, the pioneer of oil-free, magnetic bearing, variable speed centrifugal compressors for high-efficiency air-conditioning chillers and a leading manufacturer of other high-efficiency components and controls for air-conditioning and refrigeration systems, has made a $100,000 contribution to Florida State University’s engineering research in aerodynamics and magnetic technology.

The contribution comes from Danfoss Turbocor Compressors and The Mads Clausen Foundation, an organization formed in Denmark in 1960 by the founder of Danfoss Mads Clausen that, among other functions, provides financial support to universities and other institutes of higher education for research, development, and teaching purposes within technology and natural science.

“Innovation is deeply embedded in our core at Danfoss, and we believe it is through innovation that we can continue to push the boundaries of energy efficiency,” said Ricardo Schneider, president, Danfoss Turbocor Compressors. “We have tremendous potential opportunities for collaboration with Florida State University, and this mutually beneficial partnership will continue to support the growth and development of new innovative solutions to further improve energy efficiency in the field of aerodynamics, power electronics, and magnetic technologies through FSU’s world-class laboratories and researchers.”

The contribution was presented to Dr. Gary Ostrander, vice president for research at Florida State University, by Schneider and Jurgen Fischer, president – cooling segment, Danfoss, during a reception held on December 7 — the day prior to a groundbreaking ceremony for the company’s new Engineering Tomorrow Application Development Center in Tallahassee, Fla.
