March 23, 2017
Carrier China recently won a contract to provide state-of-the-art HVAC solutions to two data centers. As a leading smart energy system solutions supplier in China, East Group Co. Ltd. was looking for a company known for its energy-efficient solutions to help establish their world-class data centers. Carrier China was selected for its customer-centric approach and environmental stewardship. Carrier China operates as Carrier Air Conditioning Sales & Service (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
Carrier China will supply 32 AquaEdge® 19XR variable frequency centrifugal chillers, including 12 chillers with a cooling capacity of 1000RT and 20 chillers with a cooling capacity of 800RT, to the Guangming Haina data center and the G16 data center.
