LOCAL REFRIGERATION AND AIR-CONDITIONING TECHNICIAN OFF TO GERMANY
ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, Monday, June 27, 2016: Local refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Technician, Mr. Henry Frederick left Grenada on Saturday June 25th, 2016 to participate in a two week training Program in Germany.
The ‘Cool Training” – for Refrigeration and Air-conditioning (RAC) trainers and experts is organised and funded by GIZ Proklima on behalf of BMZ in co-operation with the BFS Vocational Training Centre in Maintal, Germany.
The two week training program from June 27th to July 8th, 2016, focuses on the Application of Natural Refrigerants in Commercial Refrigeration Systems and is specific to the use of Propane, Carbon dioxide and Ammonia use as refrigerants.
As part of Grenada’s Hydro chlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) Phase out Management Plan (HPMP) for the phase out of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS), Natural Refrigerant Technology is one of the alternative options pursued. This training therefore, would further strengthen Grenada’s capacity to introduce and implement this environmentally friendly technology.
Mr. Frederick, who is a senior RAC technician at the Maurice Bishop International Airport, a part time lecturer at the T A Marryshow Community College and a Level 4 Assessor for the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ), has over twenty-four (24) years experience in the field. He is also a certified trainer for the National Ozone Unit, Energy Division, Ministry of Finance and Energy, and regularly conducts training for technicians in Grenada and the sub-region.
Mr. Frederick’s attendance at the training is facilitated by the National Ozone Unit, Energy Division, Ministry of Finance and Energy and is funded by GIZ Proklima.
