Danfoss Turbocor® oil-free compressors selected as an efficient solution by the Solar Impulse Foundation

Contributor: Danfoss

The Danfoss Turbocor® Oil-free Compressor has received the endorsement of the Solar Impulse Foundation as one of the top 1000 solutions for protecting the environment. Already recognized as the world leader in oil-free, magnetic bearing compressor technology for the HVAC industry, this prestigious award further validates the Danfoss Turbocor® Oil-free Compressor as being a viable solution for reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions while also providing economic benefits to end users through an ROI in less than three years and reduced energy consumption.

With this new endorsement, Danfoss is the second company in the world today with Soprema that has three products selected by the Solar Impulse Foundation. 

Top scorer in sustainability

Danfoss Turbocor® compressor range has achieved the high score of 4.0 assessed on the criteria of technological feasibility, environmental and socio-economic benefits and profitability. Danfoss Turbocor® compressors feature oil-free, magnetic bearing technology that reduces energy consumption up to 40 percent compared to traditional fixed-speed compressor technology. The oil-free technology also sustains high levels of efficiency over the life of the compressor with no degradation of performance. The sustainable performance of the Danfoss Turbocor® compressor provides annual emission savings of up to 194 metric tons CO2 per year.

More than 68,000 Turbocor compressors have been installed in water- and air-cooled chiller systems worldwide. They can be found in apartment blocks, skyscrapers, nuclear power stations, shopping centers, hospitals, heaters, airplane hangars, naval and commercial vessels and data centers globally.

“We are very proud that our Danfoss Turbocor has been appointed as one of the top 1000 solutions for protecting the environment. The market for highly efficient solutions is growing rapidly, partly because of the increased focus on energy savings and partly because of urbanization which creates a need for more commercial buildings. Turbocor demonstrates that bold technology strategies are instrumental in securing long-term growth and profitability in our core businesses,” says Danfoss President and CEO Kim Fausing.

Sustainable Development Goals and the Solar Impulse Foundation

The one thousand Efficient Solutions, individually assessed by independent experts for the World Alliance, will comprise the very best the world has to offer in clean and profitable solutions to protect the environment. These Efficient Solutions follow five United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). They will be presented to governments, businesses and institutions to encourage them to adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies. The mission of the World Alliance is to accelerate climate action by achieving a closer alignment between the private and public sector. The World Alliance is backed by Solar Impulse Foundation, whose Initiator, Chairman and Pilot, Bertrand Piccard, wants to exemplify what is possible with current innovation, claiming we’re now at a turning point: “In the past, cleantech was not profitable, but today it is. Finally, we can reconcile economy and ecology.”

World Alliance has about 1,700 members and is rapidly growing.
