Carrier’s Evergreen® 23XRV “Foxfire” high efficiency VFD tri-rotor screw chiller has been certified as a leader, scoring 85 percent and above in the Green Building Product Certification of the Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC). With four “ticks,” this is the highest rating achieved to date under the council’s water-cooled chillers product group. Carrier, the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
“We are honoured and proud to be awarded the highest rating from the Singapore Green Building Council”, said Mr. Oon Wee Chin, Managing Director, Carrier Singapore and South East Asia. “Many buildings in Singapore have achieved the Singapore Building & Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Gold and Platinum awards using Carrier’s Evergreen® 23XRV high-efficient chillers. We are pleased that this energy-efficient chiller is formally recognized through this certification program.”
SGBC rolled out the Green Building Product Certification Scheme in September 2010 to provide a meaningful differentiation of safer, healthier and sustainable products for the building industry. Formulated by more than 90 building professionals, the criteria assess the level of environmental-friendliness of building products in areas of safety, health, performance efficiency and environmental protection. The certification is the first dedicated green building product certification scheme to support the Singapore BCA Green Mark Scheme.
Carrier Singapore received the certificate at a ceremony during the SGBC 2nd Anniversary Dinner at Marina Mandarin Hotel Singapore in 15 September 2011.
