In an effort to instill best practices and promote the usage of green energy-efficient technologies in the cold chain sector, Emerson has developed a state-of-the-art 25,000sq m cold chain centre of excellence - the Emerson Cold Chain and Distribution Centre - at Chakan, Pune. It has rapidly risen to be recognised as the hub of cold chain solutions in India.

Emerson Climate has created a new benchmark with its 360-degree offerings in the cold chain industry. It showcases a wide range of technology and service solutions for the industry available from Emerson, including custom-built products like condensing units and racks suited to the Indian conditions and market, as well as value-added services like project design and educational services for cold chain.

Its commercial and residential solution platform is one of the leading providers of air conditioning and refrigeration solutions for the cold chain industry.

Emerson has a wide range of refrigeration products for applications like chillers, commercial buildings, cold rooms, cold storage units and food service.

It is associated with some of the leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) both locally and globally, including Carrier, Blue Star, Voltas, Sanyo, Patton and Haier. The company also serves major end users like Walmart, Tesco, Carrefour, Pepsico, Coke and 7-Eleven.

The company has recognised that a strong cold chain infrastructure is vital to make the step change required to reduce the amount of food being wasted in India.

There is a growing need for the adoption of energy-efficient technologies to offset power shortages and raising awareness levels across the food chain on the value of leveraging technology, to scale up the cold chain infrastructure in the country.


  • To locally design and manufacture factory-built energy-efficient products for the Indian market
  • To project design support to various stakeholders in cold chain, ensuring that projects are optimally designed and the right refrigeration equipment is selected
  • To educating the Indian cold chain industry on best design and operating practices, leveraging energy-efficient technologies and system operating guidelines
  • To deliver world-class service and technical after-sales support to partners in the refrigeration industry
  • To lead the industry in the development of standards for cold chain and transportation
Project design services
Refrigeration solutions for optimal design of cold storages

Building a world class refrigerated cold storage requires a solid understanding of the technical principles, thorough refrigeration system design knowledge and storage practices based on the commodity stored. An inefficient or improper design can lead to escalation of investment and operation costs and impact the quality of the produce stored in the cold storage.

Emerson Project Design Team is a highly specialised and experienced team of design engineers who will assist contractors, dealers and end-users, ensuring that cold chain projects are optimally designed and the right refrigeration equipment is selected.

The company provides:
  • Detailed heat load calculation based on the type of commodity stored and cold storage operation
  • Full selection of refrigeration equipment to achieve optimal design and improved energy efficiency
  • Advanced solutions with networking, communications and monitoring integrated solutions for CA cold rooms, humidity-controlled cold rooms and ripening chambers
Training and education
Promoting energy-efficient technologies, best practices and increasing awareness levels across the cold chain

A sound understanding of refrigeration basics, storage conditions for various commodities, cold storage design, equipment selection and operating guidelines can help in reduction of food wastage and result in improved food handling and quality in the cold chain.

In an effort to instill best practices and promote the usage of green energy-efficient technologies in the cold chain sector, Emerson launched a educational services programme which is free of cost.

The company has a world-class cold chain training facility, featuring:
  • Dedicated training classroom with live equipment and products in action
  • Training modules covering a wide range of topics, from refrigeration fundamentals and system troubleshooting to advanced topics like cold room design based on customer requirements
  • Live freezer and chiller cold rooms running on our best-in-class efficiency scroll condensing units
Condensing unit assembly and distribution centre
Manufacturing world-class products, quick delivery and excellent service

Driven by the high demand for locally-built, branded, quality products and a growing trend towards larger cold storage units, Emerson has set up a full-fledged assembly line at the new facility in Chakan. The layout and the performance of the condensing units are optimised using CAE facilities. The components are sourced internationally and have been subjected to stringent qualification standards of Emerson Climate Technologies. The performance of the condensing units is validated by testing in a suitable appliance at an ambient of 46° C.

The highlights are:
  • World-class assembly line for the entire range of condensing units that can be built using scroll, reciprocating and semi-hermetic technology and multi-compressor rack systems
  • Reduced delivery time and improved local after-sales support
  • Dedicated distribution center for cold chain to stock the entire range of products, ranging from compressors, flow controls to electronic controllers
  • Local availability of spare parts to facilitate better support and reduced lead times
Emerson condensing units have been successfully used in varied cooling applications like cold rooms, banana ripening, fruits and vegetables, pharmaceutical, industrial chillers in plastic/rubber industry, etc.
