Brussels, 31 March 2021. During its recent online meeting, the Eurovent Product Group ‘Evaporative Cooling Equipment’ (PG-CT) elected Mr Frank Stocker (Managing Director, Gohl-KTK) as the successor of Mr Doic Hordern (CEO, JACIR) in the role of Vice-Chairman of the group. Mr Laurent Petiot (General Manager France Benelux Maghreb, BAC) continues as Chairman of PG-CT.

The Eurovent Product Group ‘Evaporative Cooling Equipment’ recently met in a fruitful online session. The meeting included Chairman and Vice-Chairman elections, as well as redefinition of the group’s scope to include all hybrid and adiabatic technologies. PG-CT is turning its attention to the review of Ecodesign Regulation for professional refrigeration (ENTR Lot 1), in which new efficiency requirements are being considered for process chillers connected to an evaporative condenser.

Mr Frank Stocker, newly elected PG-CT Vice-Chairman, stated: “With the review of the Ecodesign Regulation for professional refrigeration around the corner, we are facing a great opportunity to promote the energy saving potential of evaporative cooling technologies. By making the Eurovent voice heard in the review, we can support the EU to achieve its climate targets.”

Mr Laurent Petiot, Chairman of PG-CT, added: “The European industry faces important challenges, regulations are getting stringent and Eurovent is instrumental in supporting the manufacturers. Our Product Group pledges to closely monitor the review process to ensure the highest energy efficiency requirements for Europe.”

PG-CT unites manufacturers of evaporative and adiabatic cooling equipment from around Europe and is supported by Eurovent Member Associations on a national level. Its main tasks consist of advocating on European level, developing Eurovent Recommendations, generally promoting the industry and export initiatives, and diminishing unfair trade barriers inside and outside Europe.
