Ingersoll Rand inaugurated a new facility for manufacturing, light assembly, and distribution of Trane and Thermo King climate control systems in Ovčáry-Kolín, Czech Republic.

The new site replaces operations that were in the downtown Kolín manufacturing facility, which has been in operation since 1992, and will continue production of Thermo King and Trane products.

The plant makes Trane water terminals and small- to medium-sized chillers for commercial heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. It also manufactures Thermo King air-conditioning units for bus and rail transportation vehicles for customers worldwide.

The new plant has 25,000 square meters of production and warehouse space and more than 3,400 square meters of office space. An additional 5,000 square meters is available for future expansion.

The new facility incorporates a number of sustainability features to optimize energy efficiency, water use, and waste disposal. Energy savings will be achieved through improved insulation, advanced building façades, and various climate control measures such as double-glazed windows, automatically controlled shading systems, and airtight docking and leveling systems. Indigenous trees cover more than 40% of the 90,000 square meters of land on which the facilities sit. Additional sustainability features include preferred parking spots for low-emission and fuel-efficient vehicles, a wet pond to collect rainwater for use in toilets, leading to significant reduction in potable water needs, and a solar hot water heating system.

Ingersoll Rand also has a plant in the Czech Republic city of Uničov and has an Engineering and Technology Center in Prague Hostivice.
