Tesco is working with UK technology company Aerofoil Energy to transform the performance of refrigeration cabinets in its stores via the application of Formula One-derived aerodynamics.
The roll-out of Aerofoils in Tesco supermarkets throughout the UK and Ireland represents the largest adoption of shelf-edge technology to date. Tesco will also adopt Aerofoil Energy’s Vortex technology for its new fridges, with the aim of delivering energy and carbon emissions savings to rival that of cabinets with glass doors.
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.
