Yangon, 17 March—Japanese electronics giant Mitsubishi Electric signed a deal Tuesday with its local distributor and the Myanmar Engineering Society to provide training for technicians on air conditioning and refrigeration systems.
“The main aim of the two-year memorandum of understanding is to fulfil the country’s needs by supporting human resource capacity-building programmes,” said U Khin Maung Myat of Peace Myanmar Electronic Co., the country’s main distributor of Mitsubishi Electric products.
“Through PME, we aim to provide not only theoretical lessons but also hands-on courses regularly on air conditioning topics ranging from air conditioning fundamentals to advanced courses on platforms provided by MES,” said Mr Susumu Oshibe, deputy managing director of Mitsubishi Electric.
The courses should equip participants with adequate knowledge to manage the most advanced heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) systems, he added.
Under the MoU, the world’s leading air conditioning manufacturer on Tuesday donated a refrigeration kit to MES for training purposes, promising to give continued technical support.
U Win Khaing, President of MES, said, “The society sees the air conditioning and refrigeration business increasing in Myanmar due to the government reform policies in 2011, which attracted many investments.”
Mitsubishi Electric is a leading manufacturer of energy efficient air conditioning equipment. It has been selling products and services focused in the power sector for many years in Myanmar.
Founded in 1994, Peace Myanmar Electronic Co. imports and distributes HVAC products and parts.
The Myanmar Engineering Society was established in 1995 with the aim of furthering the professional development of Myanmar engineers and technicians.—GNLM
