Reiterating the company’s commitment towards Engineering Tomorrow’s India, Danfoss India – a global industry leader in energy-efficient technologies for food, infrastructure and heavy industries has unveiled its latest range of products to cater to the efficiency of fisheries in India.

The products were inaugurated by K S Srinivas, chairman, Marine Products Export Development Authority (MPEDA), at the India International Sea Food Expo 2020 that took place in Kochi.

The inauguration took place in the presence of P Sudhir Kumar, director, marketing, Frick India Limited, and Anil D Gulanikar, consultant, refrigeration, Dag-Tech Services and Danfoss India representatives.

The products launched by Danfoss include Danfoss Intelligent Purging System (IPS), Danfoss Gas Detectors, Danfoss Plate Heat Exchanger, the EKE 400, the ICFD and the ICSH 2 Step Solenoid Valve.

These products are set to change the standard for solution offerings in the industrial refrigeration and cooling industry.

Speaking on the outlook for fisheries in India, Ravichandran Purushothaman, president, Danfoss India, said, “India’s geographic location gives it a strategic advantage to boost fisheries.”

The key to the future development of the sector lies in powering FFPOs (fish farmer producer organisations) and encouraging the involvement and employment of our youth through the Sagar Mitra Scheme.

It is also critical to develop holistic cooperation between industry players, the state and the centre to create a sustainable framework of cold chain infrastructure to seamlessly connect produce to the demand centres within India, where 80 per cent of our fish production is consumed.

This will be key to reducing post-harvest losses from 25 per cent to 10 per cent, and increasing production in fisheries to two lakh tonne within the next five years, towards meeting the growing demands.

Today, issues concerning low-shelf life, insufficient processing infrastructure, traceability and irresponsible fishing methods etc. are challenging the profitability of fisheries in the country.

Danfoss’ wide experience and know-how to act as a competent and trustworthy partner for the global fish handling industry makes it a top preference for customers to ensure accurate temperature control, consistent production flow and an environmentally sustainable approach to tackle the growing energy requirements of the industry.

Employment of efficient solutions in the sector can revolutionise the scope for economic and environmental profits for India’s coastal states, wherein fisheries contribute a sizable portion to the nation’s GDP (gross domestic product) and propensity for exports. The industry also presents an outlook to build a new ecosystem of start-ups and create newer jobs in the nation.

The India International Sea Food Expo 2020 in a coastal city like Kochi facilitates a better connection between producers and new markets, both in India and globally.

The forum also creates and ecosystem of dialogue and discussion among various stakeholders, to spread awareness on the latest technologies and knowledge sharing on transformative strategies to make the fisheries industry more ecologically sustainable and carbon-neutral.
