The awards were presented April 20 at The Capitale in New York City during a ceremony attended by senior executives from some of the world’s most innovative and recognized companies.

    “Our judges recognized the Danfoss Turbocor VTT compressor as a true innovator out of the many products in its category,” said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards. Danfoss was recognized as part of the program’s Energy & Sustainability category.

    The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science, and medical. 

    Intended for water-cooled chillers and with capacities of 350 tons per compressor, Danfoss Turbocor VTT (Variable Twin Turbo) compressors are oil-free, variable-speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors for commercial air-conditioning or process cooling chillers reaching up to 1,000 tons or more.
