Carrier Corp. broke ground in Tierra del Fuego for construction of a sustainable air-conditioning unit manufacturing facility. It will be able to produce approximately 180,000 residential air-conditioning units annually. Carrier will invest approximately US$15 million in the construction and expects to begin production in 2009. The company expects to employ approximately 400 people at the plant during peak seasons.
When completed, the facility will be certified as LEED Silver, the U.S. acceptable benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings.
