This new product from Blue Star is built to suit Indian conditions with 100 per cent cooling capacity even at 43 degree Celsius.

“Blue Star VRF IV Plus is a landmark indigenous introduction to Indian HVAC market and will set benchmark for our competitors,” said B Thiagarajan, Executive Director & President– AC&R Products Business, Blue Star Ltd.  Blue Star plans an export worth Rs 500 crore by 2018 to SAARC countries, Middle East and South Africa, that have similar weather conditions such as India. The company has
