Hitachi opens refurbished aircademy

Hitachi Air Conditioning Europe has launched its newly refurbished aircademy training centre in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Hitachi’s aircademy has recently been updated to showcase its latest ErP-compliant air conditioning and MCS-approved heating products.

Hitachi’s training manager, Paul Driver, said: “What’s key is that our training centre isn’t just a showroom; all the products are ready for engineers to use and get to grips with. The aircademy features an extensive range of Hitachi air conditioning and heating products so our trainees can hear for themselves the low noise levels, feel the water temperature increases in our air source heat pumps and test simple multi-function controllers through to CS Net Web and BMS interfaces.

“We also have an aircademy in Dublin for our Irish customers and a smaller Hitachi training centre in Glasgow which I often visit for our Northern based engineers and staff.”
