In developing its new VRV IV, Daikin’s European Development Center has provided an overall answer to Europe’s varying geographical and climate conditions, while setting the standard for cooling and heating comfort. Icing on the cake: the VRV Configurator, which allows simplified configuration and commissioning. Product Development Engineers David Steen and Kevin Ampe of Daikin’s European Development Center and Mentor Alain De Lille of Daikin’s Service department comment on this revolutionary and pioneering total solution called VRV IV.
In 2010, Daikin Europe N.V. announced its intent to join forces with major European research institutes to develop economically feasible net zero energy building (nZEB) concepts based on heat pumps. A test nZEB was constructed in the Ruhr region of Germany, and at the end of February 2012, a balance was made of the building’s performance after one full year of use. The result: the building generated more energy than it used, while at the same time providing optimum comfort for users year round.
Daikin Industries, Ltd. (Daikin) passed a resolution today at its Board of Directors meeting to acquire Goodman Global Group, Inc. (Goodman). Daikin, Goodman, and Goodman's major shareholder, Hellman & Friedman LLC (H&F), signed a definitive agreement today regarding the acquisition.
The new FXAQ15 wall mounted units are designed for hotel rooms, small offices and other rooms with less demanding cooling and heating requirements due to their size and high insulation levels. The result is optimum comfort with unprecedented efficiency and ultra-quiet operation (down to 19 dBA), in a sleek package that blends with any interior.
In launching its 4th generation of VRV systems, Daikin Europe N.V. again set the standard for superior energy efficiency and comfort. Almost 500 installers, architects and HVAC consultants from more than 44 countries celebrated the launch of Daikin’s new VRV IV on 24 May, in the year of VRV’s 30th anniversary.
Daikin Europe N.V. announces the new ‘EWAQ~E-/F-’ multiple scroll chiller range designed for absolute energy efficiency, including versions with a Eurovent Class A rating. The new range also boasts very low sound levels, reduced footprint and easy installation. It is compatible with the most common BMS protocols, and has the largest single refrigerant circuit presently available on the multi-scroll chiller market, making it the ideal solution for a broad range of comfort and process applications.
Top comfort and efficiency in all situations
The imminent unveiling by Europe of its Eco-design standard and associated use of seasonal efficiency ratings has raised the bar with respect to efficient air conditioning comfort.
Seasonal Efficiency: measuring true performance in real-life situations
An improved range of domestic heat pumps is being launched by leading renewable energy experts Daikin, which will provide the highest levels of comfort and energy efficiency, whatever the weather.
Get ready for a new generation of Daikin innovations… Daikin sets the standard yet again with the 4th generation of VRV. VRV IV achieves a new benchmark for efficiency, as it features major enhancements to the already industry-leading VRV solution. VRV IV offers three revolutionary innovations: variable refrigerant temperature, continuous heating on heat pump and the VRV configurator for simplified commissioning. The new VRV IV heat pump units are being launched officially in May 2012 and will be available to buy from October 2012, with the heat recovery units becoming available in March 2013.
