Carrier China signs $17m VRF air conditioning deal

CHINA: Carrier China has signed a $17m contract with China Eastern Airlines Investment to provide XCT7 VRF air conditioning systems for commercial offices and residential projects throughout China. 

China Eastern Airlines Investment (CES Investment) is a subsidiary of the China Eastern Airlines Group, with real estate development, asset operation and capital construction project management at the core of its business. 

The contract is one of the largest single VRF contracts that Carrier has ever signed, representing a new milestone for Carrier China’s light commercial business. 

The XCT7 VRF system’s performance is superior to China’s national Level 1 energy efficiency standard, with integrated part load value as high as 10. It is said to be capable of fast cooling and heating, while its minimum indoor operation sound is only 23dB. In addition, the XCT7 VRF system can be connected to a smart home system for remote intelligent control.
