Star Refrigeration has delivered a future-proof CO2 solution for Europe's first fully refrigerated beer warehouse.
Fast-growing Scottish company BrewDog commissioned Star to design and install a new plant capable of chilling its craft beers to 50 degrees C ahead of distribution. The 80,000m3 warehouse and chilled distribution centre in Motherwell offers easy access to Scotland’s road network and is also just five miles away from Star’s Bellshill branch, which further strengthened the working relationship.
From its location on the Cornish coast near Bude, The Beach Hotel can see at first-hand the damaging effects that technologies and plastics are having on our environment.
The hotel wanted to lead the way in the smaller commercial sector by using an environmentally friendly natural refrigerant for its food cold storage. After talking its plans through with contractor KJ Refrigeration, it chose to use CO2 (R744).
Carter Synergy has revealed details of what it believes was the world-first installation of a newly developed multi rotary compressor pack using CO2 at a trading store.
The pack at a Tesco Express store in Shaw, near Oldham, combines rotary compressors with Green & Cool’s control software to ensure reliability and efficiency.
