Good climate for the pandas

In the Finnish Ähtäri Zoo, the panda bears Lumi and Pyry feel right at home – also thanks to EC tech­nology from ebm-papst.

Panda bears Lumi (english: Snow) and Pyry (english: Snow­storm) are not your average pandas. For Ähtäri Zoo in Finland, where the pair have munched on bamboo since 2018, they are genuine visitor magnets. Since their arrival from China, almost twice as many animal lovers have visited the zoo in the town with a popu­la­tion of 6,000. In the 2019 Giant Panda Global Awards, Lumi won the title of “Most Popular Panda outside of China.” And she allowed Pyry to share her joy at receiving the honor: this spring, it looked as if the pandas were courting.

They could also have simply been showing how cozy they feel in the Ähtäri Zoo’s panda house, which was built espe­cially for them. In the modern building, heat recovery units from the Fläk­t­Group ensure that the climate there is balanced. At the units’ heart: EC fans from ebm-papst. Now ebm-papst has the quality of its prod­ucts in black and white — liter­ally.
