The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and, Refrigeration (AHRI) renewed its testing contract with General Machinery Product Inspection Institute (GMPI) of Heifei, China during the AHR Expo in Las Vegas on Feb. 1, 2011. The agreement contracted GMPI to conduct all water-cooled chiller tests for products manufactured in China. AHRI said its chiller certification program members were eager to extend the testing contract after a successful inaugural year.

GMPI will perform both annual and qualification testing throughout China. In 2010, GMPI worked with China Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Industry Association (CRAA), AHRI's sister association and exclusive certification agent in China, assisting in bringing two new Chinese certification participants into the AHRI Water-Cooled Chiller Certification program, GREE and TICA.

"With the extension of GMPI's contract to conduct chiller testing in China, AHRI is well poised to meet the growing interest in AHRI's chiller certification program from Chinese manufacturers," said Stephen Yurek, AHRI President and CEO.
