The recent launch of CO2Y, Green & Cool’s compact condensing unit, has been warmly welcomed by the market.
CO2Y was developed to provide businesses that have less-demanding refrigeration requirements, such as small shops and petrol stations, with an affordable and uncomplicated, but environmentally friendly, option.
It now turns out that the range of applications is wider than expected: A CO2Y unit was recently installed at the Ica Maxi supermarket in Kungsbacka, Sweden.
“We needed a cold room in another part of the store building, and it would not have made economic sense to run piping there from the existing refrigeration system,” explains the store manager, Andreas Jendestig.
A small, self-contained, supplementary unit was the ideal solution. After requirements were discussed with the team at Kylkvalitet, who carried out the installation, the decision was made to install a CO2Y unit from Green & Cool.
“Low environmental impact was our top priority. The Ica Maxi store in Kungsbacka is about to undergo major renovation, and the whole refrigeration system will be upgraded to a greener specification,” says Andreas Jendestig.
Green & Cool’s units use environmentally friendly carbon dioxide as a refrigerant, and are financially competitive at the same time. The F-gas Regulation, which is intended to phase out the most harmful greenhouse gases in Europe, has led to a surge in customer enquiries for Kylkvalitet. Many companies are now considering switching their refrigeration systems to carbon dioxide in order to comply with future requirements.
“The 2–9 kW segment, which CO2Y falls into, has enormous future potential since there has not been an economical environmentally friendly alternative until now,” says Joakim Westerberg at Kylkvalitet.
Thanks to Green & Cool’s wide range of products it is always possible to find the right solution when a company is ready to invest in modern refrigeration technology that meets high standards of environmental performance, economy, user friendliness and reliability.
