Pubblichiamo l’intervento integrale in lingua inglese tenuto questa mattina dall’Ing. Marco Buoni, Direttore del Centro Studi Galileo e Vice Presidente di AREA, alla Conferenza “Strengthening HVAC-R” in Turchia legata al progetto “Aggiungere Valore al Futuro”, frutto della collaborazione tra Casale e Izmir, le due capitali del freddo Italiana e Turca.
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
it is with great pleasure and honour that I give you all my warmest welcome to the international conference “Strengthening HVAC” as Vice President of AREA – Air Conditioning and Refrigeration European Association – and Secretary General of ATF – the Italian Association of Refrigeration Technicians.
We are delighted and excited about this fruitful cooperation between Italy and Turkey, which grew thanks to the “Adding Value to the Future” project, which is funded by the European Union and the Government of Turkey, with the purpose of improving union and communication between the two districts that are leaders in the refrigeration field: Casale Monferrato (Piedmont) and Izmir.
We have been working together with Turkey and the associations of refrigeration for the last 10 years. AREA, European Association of The Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technicians is a well-known example of the collaboration and knowledge sharing process that runs between our two Countries, as we have Turkish members among us.
The cooperation between our Associations aims at raising the awareness of engineers and technicians on better handling refrigerant gases and the new systems for reaching a continuous and sustainable growth of our sector while satisfying our clients. Finally yet importantly, we also work for the future and safety of our planet Earth. As we all know, the protection of our fragile ecosystem, as well as energy-saving issues, are of extreme relevance for the wellbeing of our Countries.
Our common work is fundamental for the progress of this sector. These two Countries Italy and Turkey share many common aspects; for example, they both have significant wine regions, for which a refrigeration chain is necessary.
Our 2 countries are world leaders in the production and manufacturing of refrigeration and air conditioning systems using also high level technologies which could become more and more necessary in the future. There are new markets that are growing fast in particular the Far East, South East Asia, India and Africa. But those markets want to grow using the latest technology to preserve the environment and save energy.
I thank you all for your presence and contribution to this important event.
I wish you all to get from this conference and from the meetings which will follow tomorrow fruitful cooperation for the years to come.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to bring to your kind attention the next step of this continuous process of growth in our sector: the 17th European Conference on the latest technology in air conditioning and refrigeration, which will take place on 9-10 June in Milan.
