TICA has received its first patent. The company has patented a labyrinth seal technology for an air handling unit (AHU). By using aluminum profile joints with concave and curved grooves inside the casing to form a labyrinth seal, air leakage rates are minimized (to 0.029 %) and operating costs are reduced.
The first TICA production base is opened in Nanjing, China.
A production base was established in Tianjin (China).
Established a subsidiary, Fuca Automation Technology Co., Ltd. which develops and manufactures automatic control systems for TICA HVAC equipment. It is a member of the China Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Industry Association (CRAA) and the China Cleanroom Technology Committee. The company's products are sold in China and exported to Ukraine, South Africa, Iran, Pakistan and other countries.
The State Committee for Development and Reform, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Finance, the General Administration of Customs and the General Administration of Taxation of the PRC have recognized TICA as a national technology center.
Opened a production base in Guangzhou.
The company has attracted reputable Japanese specialists to its own development center, having previously held senior positions in Toshiba, LG, Samsung, Panasonic, Sanyo, Ryosan Co., Ltd. Thanks to them, the DC-inverter unit of TIMS VRF systems was developed.
TICA was the first in the PRC to eliminate the use of HCFC Freon in its climate control equipment.
TICA's Nanjing plant was the first in the PRC to be awarded three stars (the highest honor awarded by Chinese supervisory authorities) as an environmentally friendly industrial building.
TICA's Nanjing Research Center, with more than 30 laboratories and test facilities, is accredited by the China National Accreditation Service (CNAS).
TICA received its first award for high product quality from the China Machinery Industry Federation (CMIF). Since then, the company has been honored with this award every year.
The first multi-stream VRF system production line based on Japanese technology is launched.
TICA's infrastructural elements, air conditioning equipment, dust extraction and air purification systems for clean rooms have been awarded ISO 1 certification. The document indicates that the company's products are recommended for installation in rooms with the most stringent requirements for temperature, air humidity and PM2.5 particle content. The company's customers include IBM, Sony, Philips, Sharp, Toshiba, NEC and others.
A global cooperation agreement was signed with United Technologies Corporation. The American corporation is the owner of Collins Aerospace (one of the world's largest suppliers of aerospace and defense products), Carrier (one of the leading manufacturers of HVAC systems and refrigeration equipment), Pratt & Whitney (produces aircraft engines, gas turbines, etc.), Riello S.p.A. (a leading Italian supplier of HVAC systems), OTIS (the most famous manufacturer of elevators, escalators and other lifting equipment on the planet). UTC has granted its strategic partner more than one hundred patents on technologies and components for centrifugal and screw chillers and ORC-systems operating on the principles of Rankine cycle. Western innovations allowed TICA to be twenty to thirty years ahead of all local competitors in cryogenic technology.
TICA was the first Chinese company to open its own R&D institute in Japan. Specialists from this country are rightfully considered the undisputed leaders in the field of HVAC equipment development. The institute is engaged in research and development of technologies used in VRF-systems, chillers, heat pumps, installations generating electricity from low-potential heat sources.
Through the acquisition of technology and rights to ORC systems and the PureCycle brand from Pratt & Witney, one of the world's largest aircraft engine manufacturers, part of United Technologies Corporation, TICA has produced China's first organic Rankine cycle power plant.
TICA has established a subsidiary company TICA Thermal Technology with authorized capital of 100 million dollars. The company specializes in the development, design and production of energy units operating on the principles of the organic Rankine cycle (ORC) and converting thermal energy into electrical energy. The heat sources used in such systems are geothermal or solar energy, hot water (steam) removed from the cooled equipment, and biomass.
A production base in Chengdu was built.
The TIMS-X fully DC-inverter modular VRF outdoor unit has been delivered to the market.
TICA received a state award for its outstanding contribution to the industrial development of China's Jiangsu Province.
TICA has adopted the brand strategy "Quality is a clean environment".
TICA's high-efficiency air-conditioning system for Guangzhou subway stations has been recognized as the best in the world. The company serves about 60 key subway lines in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Suzhou, Hangzhou and Tianjin.
TICA has acquired SMARDT, the undisputed market leader in oil-free magnetic bearing centrifugal chillers with over 8,000 units sold. The range includes chillers from 200 to 4200 kW (water-cooled) and 200 to 1600 kW (air-cooled).
TICA has signed a strategic partnership agreement for the design and development of multi-zone VRF systems and heat pumps that utilize natural gas as an energy source.
TICA Thermal Technology has acquired Exergy S.p.a., the largest Italian developer of ORC systems, which was part of Maccaferri Industrial Group, for EUR 16.05 million. In the production portfolio of the engineering company there are 27 realized projects converting energy from geothermal sources into electric power with a total capacity of 440 MW. By this indicator Exergy S.p.a. ranks second in the world. The systems designed by Italian specialists, which utilize heat generated by energy-intensive industries, are used at 21 sites (total capacity - 31.2 MW), biomass - at 5 sites, solar energy - at 1 site. In total, the company's portfolio includes 54 generating stations with a total capacity of 475 MW.
TICA's revenue for 2019 exceeded $900 million dollars.
TICA has been awarded the Jiangsu Province Quality Award for product excellence. It is the province's highest quality award. It was introduced to reward enterprises that have shown excellent economic performance, carried out effective measures to improve product quality, and made the greatest contribution to the social development of Jiangsu and the improvement of local people's living standards.
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China and the China Machinery Industry Federation have once again named TICA a national leader in the air conditioning industry.
