Grenada Demonstration ProjectMore Information
Grenada received two 18,000 British Thermal Unit (BTU) R290 inverter air-conditioning units under a regional demonstration project for the introduction of low global warming potential flammable refrigerants in the region.
The two hydrocarbon-based AC units were installed in Grenada’s pilot training centre for low-GWP flammable refrigerants which is equipped with state-of-the-art tools and equipment specifically designed to handle flammable refrigerants.
These include recovery machines, vacuum pumps, refrigerant identifiers, electronic scales and leak detectors, charging stations, welding machines, multi-meters, among other tools.
The training centre is open to local technicians, technical colleges and residential air-conditioning (RAC) technicians in the region.
These new air-conditioning systems will be used to train students and technicians in using hydrocarbon technology in the air-conditioning sector.
