The five month project was carried out whilst the site remained active and involved building the new freezer room, transfer of stock and  conversion of a freezer room into a chilled room. All of which was delivered with minimal disruption to the staff and day to day operations.

A total of 178kW of equipment was required to provide the cooling services and Bitzer Ecostar fully inverter driven condensing systems were utilised to maximise efficiencies and reduce energy costs. The systems are montored by a remote alarm system.
