Fujitsu donates to Eastleigh students

Eastleigh College student Jack Culhane, the winner of this year’s SkillFridge competition, will be one of the college’s apprentices to benefit from the donation of the new Fujitsu equipment

UK: Fujitsu Air Conditioning (UK) has donated a range of air conditioning equipment for student workshops at Eastleigh College, Hampshire.

The equipment includes a number of fixed systems, including a new heat recovery VRF system, a mini VRF system, as well as single split and multi systems.

Local contractors will also benefit from the new equipment as Fujitsu trainers will provide training courses in the College workshops throughout the year.

Thrilled with the donation, Shaun Creech, one of the college’s refrigeration and air conditioning lecturers said: “We have taken the training we offer our students to a whole new level, which will benefit those who are starting out in the industry, as well as those looking to progress their career and develop their skills. Giving our students access to the facilities used by professionals is invaluable and will give them a head start for their future careers.

“Kitting out the college with this specialist equipment gives students, Fujitsu technicians and local contractors the skills, knowledge and understanding of what it’s like to work in this extensive field.”

Martyn Ives, Fujitsu’s technical service manager, recognised the importance of keeping students up to date with the latest technological developments. “By donating this modern equipment to the College, students and technicians throughout the industry will be more familiar with the products, helping them with their work both now and in the future,” he said.
