Jan. 11, 2013: Carrier Celebrates 500th CO2 Refrigeration System Installation

FRIESOYTHE, Germany — Carrier announced that it has achieved a new milestone with the 500th installation of its CO2OLtec® refrigeration system in the new famila market in Friesoythe, Germany. The company noted that the CO2OLtec system is helping improve the store’s energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint by using the natural refrigerant CO2.

The famila market in Friesoythe belongs to the Bünting group of companies headquartered in Leer, Ostfriesland. Bünting covers a large market area in northwest Germany through its various sales entities. The company chose to install CO2OLtec Integral systems in the new famila market, using CO2 for refrigeration as well as for heating and cooling of the store. According to Carrier, this solution enables the store to cut energy costs by 35 percent while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50 percent.

“With a new shop, the management of the building’s energy and the reduction of the operating costs are major items. In terms of sustainability, we strive to find an environmentally sound solution. In this context, we have opted for Carrier’s Integral system which enables new levels of energy efficiency combined with a significant improvement in the store’s carbon emissions,” said Robert Meyer, director, corporate technology, Bünting.

With CO2OLtec Integral, all the waste heat created during the refrigeration process is collected and redistributed for heating via the CO2OLheat™ module. The system leverages an incorporated heat pump to generate additional heat during the cold months and enables cooling of the supermarket when needed. The integration of the refrigeration, heating, and cooling is managed by Carrier`s control system that is designed to provide optimal energy efficiency.

“I am happy to add famila to Carrier´s long list of customers who have chosen environmentally sound solutions. Carrier is proud to lead European retailers towards more sustainable technologies,” said Matti Kuivalainen, president, Carrier Commercial Refrigeration, Europe.
