New CAREL Knowledge Center inaugurated
On 19 April CAREL’s new Knowledge Center was inaugurated in Brugine (PD). This multifunctional building is home to the Group’s thermodynamic research operations, technical training and promotion of its solutions. The ceremony was attended by the Group’s President Luigi Rossi Luciani, Vice President Luigi Nalini, as well as CEO Francesco Nalini and keynote speaker Mattia Crespi, academic and research associate at the Institute for the Future in Palo Alto and CEO of Qbit Technologies Inc.

Built with a total investment of more than 10 million euros, the Center covers an area of 4,500 m2, on two floors, and represents a cutting-edge facility to respond to the increasingly demanding challenges in the HVAC/R sector.

The ground floor is home to an innovative 1,200 m2 research laboratory, including three climatic chambers certified for the use of flammable refrigerants and capable of replicating outdoor or indoor environmental conditions, used to conduct applied research projects (on units such as heat pumps, air handling units, refrigerated showcases, etc.). There is also a prototype testing cabin, and a machine assembly area equipped with hydrogen welding systems. The top floor is devoted to education, dissemination and training, and includes a conference room and a showroom with CAREL’s products and solutions for visitors, as well as four training rooms featuring the latest technology, one of which specifically for technical-practical training on humidification systems. Both floors are designed to ensure environmental sustainability and user comfort, with lighting and air conditioning systems coordinated by the Group’s own products and special attention to indoor air quality.

When at full capacity, the Knowledge Center will employ around 20 people, including 14 in the research laboratory. The building also houses the new company canteen, with space for around 400 people a day; here too, the latest CAREL equipment and electronic controllers guarantee a high standard of service.
