Technician Equipment Support Scheme

One of the activities under NCCoPP is to facilitate the access of service equipment to selected Refrigeration Service Enterprises (RSEs) under a dedicated Equipment Support Scheme (ESS). The ESS enables RSEs to adopt good servicing practices by providing them financial assistance in upgrading their tools and equipment. The appropriate equipment enables the technicians to retrofit CFC12-based appliances with non-CFC refrigerants, and efficiently service both CFC and non-CFC appliances.

The call to the RSEs is a part of a public process. GTZ Proklima as the lead implementing agency of NCCoPP is mandated to manage this public call and implement ESS Facilitation.

As part of raising awareness about this activity, ESS workshops are held all over the country, where interested RSEs can know more about the equipment and view the various packages.

Under this ESS the project has supported the entrepreneurs in the country to set up business for Reclamation of refrigerants.

A focal activity of NCCoPP is training of Refrigeration Service Enterprise (RSE) technicians. During training the participants / technicians are taught how to handle the alternate refrigerants, good service practices and emphasis is laid on recovery of CFCs. Therefore the training programs have helped in creating a demand for recovery and reclaiming of refrigerants. With over 18,000 technicians already trained under NCCoPP and its forerunner projects. The requirement of reclamation of CFC for the RSE technicians would be addressed through these reclamation centres.

Eight business centers one each in Bangalore, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Kolkatta, Lucknow and Indore has started. One can contact the nearest centre to get the CFC reclaimed.
