IOR partners with ISHRAE in India

The UK's Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) and the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) in India have confirmed their agreement of a framework to work together to share technical information on refrigeration.

The organisations possess the mutual objectives of promoting co-operation and advancement in science and practice of technologies, and will be sharing expertise, publications and publicity.

As the first product of this co-operation, ISHRAE members will have the opportunity access to some of the IOR’s extensive library of online refrigeration technical information. 

ISHRAE has also provided the IOR with the opportunity to attend and present at the forthcoming Refcold exhibition and conference in Gandhinagar, India from 22-24 November 2018. 

The agreement, which takes the form of a Memorandum of Understanding, was signed on 23 April in Brussels.

IOR president Steve Gill said: “I’m really pleased to be launching this co-operative agreement with our friends and colleagues at ISHRAE and I’m sure they will make good use of the wealth of technical information the IOR can share, especially on the rapidly changing topic of refrigerants.

“I’m equally pleased that ISHRAE is so enthusiastic about sharing their events and activities with IOR members and look forward to working with them more closely over the coming years.”

Subramaniam Chandrasekaran, president of ISHRAE, added: “ISHRAE is pleased to enter into this MOU with Institute of Refrigeration based in the UK. We are confident that this association will bring in a lot of value to the members in reaching out to the best design and operation practices of refrigeration system from the enriched Institute in UK.

“A lot of opportunity also exists in sharing of technical articles that can be shared through the journals that both the societies bring forth, and that can really spiral off into some research activities and interaction between the world of academia in the areas of natural working fluids and newer refrigerants. We are really looking forward to having a very close association with the IOR in the years to come.”
