UK/PAKISTAN: The UK’s Institute of Refrigeration has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Pakistan HVACR Society (PHVACR) for future collaborative work.
As a result of the agreement, the two societies say its members will have access to an increased range of technical publications, news and events. PHVACR members will have access to the IoR’s extensive library of on-line refrigeration technical information, while PHVACR is keen to encourage IoR member participation in its Building Services Expo and Conference in Karachi in 2019.
Welcoming the launch of the co-operative agreement, IoR president Stephen Gill said: “By collaborating together, we will make the best use of the wealth of technical information the IoR can share especially on the rapidly changing world of refrigeration safe practise, energy efficiency and refrigerants. I am equally pleased that PHVACR is so enthusiastic about sharing their events and activities with IOR members and look forward to working with them more closely.”
Azim Ashraf, president of PHVACR described the agreement as a good omen for collective working and said: “It is hoped that members may get the benefits while availing the opportunity of access and interaction with each other’s rich experience, technical knowledge, research and development in the field of HVAC&R.”
