CNS inaugurates clean & green CO2 based AC plant

Published on

Admiral R Hari Kumar, Chief of the Naval Staff, inaugurated the unique CO2 based Air Conditioning plant at INS Shivaji on 17 Jan 24. 

As per an official release from the Indian Navy the AC Plant is first of its kind and is set to replace HFC (Hydro Fluro Carbons) and HCFC(Hydro Chloro Fluro Carbons) based air conditioning systems onboard ships. 

This step is in line with India’s commitment towards Kigali Agreement of 2016 to phase down HFC and HCFC based synthetic refrigerants from 2028 onwards and Transcritical CO2 based air conditioning plant is the first step towards it. 

This technology aligns with the global efforts to combat climate change and supports Indian Navy’s initiative towards sustainable green alternatives.

This air conditioning plant is equipped with advanced digital control systems and smart technology integration economising manpower for running the plant. The system has been developed in collaboration with IISc, Bangalore. 

The success of this technology will not only offer state-of-the-art machinery to the Navy but has the potential for a wider application into the commercial air-conditioning & refrigeration market.
