Danfoss was named a Bronze winner in the Edison Awards, a program that honors innovation and excellence in the development to new products and services. 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.

“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized among the most innovative companies and leaders, representing the best teams around the globe that bring creative solutions to customers’ problems,” said President of Danfoss Turbocor Compressors Ricardo Schneider, who received the Edison Award.

In addition to the Awards Gala, the annual Edison Awards program encompassed a full-day “Meet the Innovators Forum” and the “Innovators’ Showcase,” which offered guests a hands-on experience with many of the winning products.
