'Great turnout' for Star roadshow


06 July 2022

Star Refrigeration delivered two days of seminars and professional development opportunities for heating and cooling end users in its Scottish Roadshow.

Engineers, contractors and business owners from the food and drink manufacturing, cold storage, pharma, petrochemical and ice rink sectors took advantage of the free CPD events in Glasgow and Aberdeen and  heard presentations on topics including the F-gas regulation, legislation updates and reducing energy/carbon footprint.

One of the most popular Q&A sessions was energy efficiency and waste heat recovery as businesses continue to battle with the soaring rise in energy costs.

Calum McKenzie, Star Refrigeration’s regional manager – Scotland, said, “There was a great turnout for the 2022 Roadshow with attendees from a variety of different sectors, and we’re proud we were able to host these events and provide expert advice and guidance. It is clear that the phase down of high GWP HFCs demands urgent action, and the use of natural refrigerants such as ammonia and CO2 will only continue to accelerate.”

In addition to the half day of specialist seminars, attendees were given the chance to visit a local Star site to view recently installed refrigeration plant and learn about its operation. Star employees took delegates on tours of Curl Aberdeen and Lineage Logistics, explaining how energy efficiency design, controls and aftercare keep the plants performing at their optimal condition.

For customers who could not attend the roadshow dates, the presentations are available on request. Star is also planning further regional roadshows in England later this year and is offering customers the opportunity for mini-roadshows at their premises to run through the topics and answer any specific questions.
