Danfoss Breaks Ground on New Turbocor Manufacturing Facility
October 14, 2021 | By Logan Caswell
The new facility will triple current manufacturing capacity to meet a fast-growing demand from the American, European and Asian Pacific markets.
Danfoss has announced the ground-breaking of its new manufacturing facility in Tallahassee, Florida. The 167,000 sq. ft. building, scheduled for completion in early 2023, will host manufacturing of Turbocor compressors.
The new facility will triple current manufacturing capacity to meet a demand from the American, European and Asian Pacific markets for high efficiency cooling and heating compressors.
Once manufacturing operations are moved to the new building, the existing 70,000 sq. ft. building will be converted to an oil-free technology centre, housing R&D activities including pilot productions of new cooling technologies and services.
Turbocor compressors use magnetic-bearing technology instead of oil and provide a low-carbon and ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) cooling option for commercial air conditioning and refrigeration units.
Danfoss hopes the new facility will allow them to continue the development of technology to reduce the carbon footprint of key vital infrastructure like data centres, hospitals, hotels, airports and their needs in cooling and heating.
