Green & Cool refrigerates new transshipment terminal

ICA Gruppen is one of the leading retail companies in the Nordic region. In autumn 2014 ICA Fastigheter moved into a newly built transshipment terminal in Uppsala, Sweden’s fourth largest city. After evaluation by an outside consultant, Green & Cool was chosen to supply the refrigeration system. The system was installed by Sodexo.

“The cooling of warehouse and distribution buildings is one of many market areas that Green & Cool is targeting. The challenge here is in cooling large volumes, rather than dealing with extreme temperatures, and that is an area where our technology works extremely well,” says Kent Hofmann, sales engineer at Green & Cool.

The heart of the system is a Green & Cool Mistral unit with five compressors. The contract also included the supply of 20 fan evaporators. Torbjörn Thoresson, a consultant at Refcalc AB, was responsible for coming up with the best solution for the customer.

Kent Hoffman reports that Sodexo handled the installation very professionally and points to the good cooperation between all the parties involved as one of the keys to the success of the project.

“We are really pleased with Green & Cool; they produce high-quality refrigeration units and the associated service package always works well,” comments Nazif Busuladzic, a design engineer at Sodexo.

Hot-climate solution for Carrefour Parla in Madrid

The Green & Cool hot-climate solution will maintain Green & Cool’s excellent system performance, even in warmer climates. This is good news in Madrid, where Hypermarket Carrefour Parla chose to install a Sirocco triple-temperature-range unit with heat recovery that is also equipped with the hot-climate solution.

“Thanks to the hot-climate solution, we can now reach new markets that previously did not have the opportunity to take advantage of all the positive effects that CO2 refrigeration delivers,” says Stig-Göran Lind, Business Director at Green and Cool.

The Carrefour Group is the leading retailer in Europe and the second-largest retailer in the world, employing nearly 365,000 people.

Upgraded ICA Supermarket in Arvidsjaur

ICA Supermarket in Arvidsjaur is a medium sized grocery store in the northern part of Sweden.
An important part of a major redevelopment of the store was a thorough upgrade of the store’s refrigeration systems. Our reseller Friginor undertook this work and chose a Green & Cool Crystal unit, which is well adapted for this kind of store. Storeowner Michael Kostet is very pleased with the results and the new installation means a substantial amount of energy savings.

The Green & Cool unit is a CRYSTAL indoor unit cooling capacity MT 50 kW / LT 12 kW including heat recovery.

We started the renovation of the store in May 2013. The work was done by Friginor, who installed brand new refrigerators and freezers with units from Green & Cool. The work was done without a single days truce in the store and for a period, the old and new system run in parallel. I am very impressed with the way in which Friginor has completed the work and performance of the units delivered. We can already say that we are making an energy savings of between 30-50% compared to the previous equipment. After 6 months of full operation, we also see that the reliability far exceeds our expectations” , says store owner Michael Kostet.

Europe’s first ice arena with transcritical CO2 refrigeration

In early 2013 the roof of the ice arena collapsed in the little community of Gimo in Östhammar municipality, about 120 kilometres north of Stockholm, Sweden. When the building was restored in 2014, a new cooling system and ice rink were installed. CO2 refrigeration from Green & Cool was chosen, making the Gimo ice arena the first in Europe to cool its ice rink using pure CO2 technology. The unit from Green & Cool was delivered and installed by Industry & Laboratoriekyl.

“Working together with Green & Cool, we have resolved the oil handling issue, which now makes it possible to use only CO2 as refrigerant also in ice rinks. The concept is very beneficial for clients. We are about to launch a major marketing campaign along with Green & Cool, including a website about ice rinks and CO2 refrigeration,” says Patrik Larsson, CEO, Industri & Laboratoriekyl.

The unit in Gimo ice arena is a Green & Cool Mistral, with an effect of 250 KW. The unit naturally also has heat recovery. Most of the waste heat from the cooling process is recovered and used for site heating and hot water. Excess heat is transferred to five drilled wells, 200 metres deep, which provide geothermal energy storage.
