RSES Canada releases program for 2015 Seminar & AGM
September 9, 2015
The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) Canada has announced the speakers for its 2015 Seminar and Annual General Meeting on November 6 to 7. The event, which will be held at Humber College, North Campus in Toronto, ON, opens with Andre Patenaude director – CO2 business development, Emerson Climate Technologies, discussing applications for CO2 refrigerants.
The commercial refrigeration industry is challenged with increasing energy efficiency and environmental regulations. As a result, it is deploying different refrigeration system technologies, system architectures and refrigerants in various end-use applications. During the last five years, there has been significant global activity in the supermarket industry, specifically with CO2 refrigeration systems and this is expected to continue.
Patenaude, who has over 30 years of marketing, sales, and technical service experience working directly with end users, contractors, wholesalers and OEMs, also has significant experience with various refrigeration system architectures, system applications, contractor/installation processes, and component technologies.
Patenaude earned his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering technology from Algonquin College in Ottawa, ON, and has served as director of the manufacturer’s division of the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute. In addition to his involvement with the RSES, he is also an active member of the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists, and ASHRAE.
Other speakers on the RSES program include Roy Liew-Kie-Song of Yaskawa America Inc. who will share his expertise on HVAC VFD drives. Ian Allison of Lennox Industries will present Lennox Prodigy Training and Phil Boudreau of Bitzer Canada will tackle start-up and commissioning of commercial/industrial compressors.
