Services: Combined Refrigeration, Mechanical and Electrical Package
We were set the challenge of devising a refrigeration solution suitable for a convenience store format which offered a comparable life cycle cost option to our customer’s previously installed HFC systems, but which delivered a more environmentally sound and future-proof investment.
With existing HFC systems on the market being economical, energy efficient and requiring little maintenance, we needed to deliver a solution which could match or better them and offer impressive environmental credentials.
As pioneers in the refrigeration industry and with almost 30 years’ experience, we tackled this challenge head on and devised the ECO₂ Booster Integrated Solution (BIS) (pat. pend.).
Using advanced technology, the ECO₂ BIS combines a highly efficient chilled and frozen refrigeration system with high performing space heating (with the potential for cooling too), in one package, with an extremely low global warming potential (GWP) of just one. It’s where optimum performance meets sustainability.
Our world-class Design team used Revit® building information modelling (BIM) software to precision design the combined solution, working closely with a dedicated and experienced Project Manager to ensure all our customer’s requirements were met.
The entire system was successfully installed and commissioned within a standard three-week programme in March 2016.
We developed a fully-customised solution combining our turnkey refrigeration offering with mechanical and electrical services. At the heart of this was our market-leading natural refrigeration solution, the ECO₂ BIS.
The ECO₂ BIS is a 3-in-1 system that uses advanced technology to recover waste heat from the refrigeration process, and turns it into space heating at the most efficient conditions. Operating using the natural refrigerant R744 (CO₂), it has a very low GWP of just one, making it a refrigeration solution with a far lower environmental impact than equivalent HFC systems.
As a low noise pack with a compact footprint, the ECO₂ BIS was ideal for our customer’s convenience application and was located inside (but is equally suited to outdoor use). It’s also been developed to operate on standard control platforms used in the convenience market to keep service and maintenance costs down. The ECO₂ BIS’ noise reduction features, including anti-vibration mounts and a sound attenuated enclosure, provide a quieter store environment and more pleasurable shopping experience.
We delivered the following services:
This was a pioneering refrigeration solution installed following an 18-month testing period at our dedicated facility in Bristol. This was the system’s first live retail environment, and since every store has differing environmental factors, we embarked on an enlightening learning curve which has given us a deeper understanding of the system’s capabilities and strengths, which will enable us to deliver additional system efficiencies to future customers choosing the ECO₂ BIS.
