Chillventa-awardsGERMANY: The organisers of the forthcoming Chillventa 2016 exhibition in Nuremberg is to introduce its own special awards for the first time.

In association with German magazine publisher Bauverlag, Chillventa organiser NürnbergMesse is to present four awards for commercial refrigeration, industrial refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump projects.

The Chillventa Award will honour teams of planners, system builders, principals/operators, etc, who have realised a project that excels in terms of functionality, energy consumption and technical innovations.

In evaluating the projects, the judges will focus in particular on the interplay between the people involved in the project, from conceptual formulation, through planning and system construction to the operation of the system. Projects submitted for the award must clearly demonstrate and map the level of quality reached through this cooperative planning.

In addition, the Chillventa Award will also consider the functionality, energy consumption and technical innovation of the system. Other aspects, such as compliance with the planned budget and timetable, environmental safety requirements, certifications, etc, will also be considered by the judges.

The Award will considers any form of refrigeration, air conditioning or heat pump system – new or refurbished – that has been carried out in Europe. The submitted project must not have been completed any more than two years ago.

The competition is open to principals/operators, planners and system builders, as individuals or in consortia, with an office in a European country. Manufacturers of components and systems from the industry or the trade are not entitled to enter. However, the industry and trade may support the authorised competitors with their submissions.

The Chillventa Award will be presented on 11 October 2016, the first day of Chillventa which runs from October 11-13 in Nuremberg. Closing date is June 30, 2016.
