‘We at ENGIE Refrigeration have a clear ambition: we want to offer the highest-quality, most efficient and most sustainable chillers in the world. To secure this high standard, we are always redeveloping our machines – and continue to set new benchmarks on the international refrigeration market. The collective expertise of our team, and experience from almost 20 years of refrigeration with the existing QUANTUM models, are now being applied to the redesigned QUANTUM Water series. Thanks to its special features, the series not only meets today’s requirements for refrigeration technology, but also those of the future. And this shows that ENGIE Refrigeration is consolidating its pioneering role on the international refrigeration market.’
Jochen Hornung, CEO
‘The efficiency and sustainability of a refrigeration system are becoming increasingly important. We are catering to these developments with the new design of our water-cooled QUANTUM series. The QUANTUM Water is currently the most efficient water-cooled chiller series on the market – and high efficiency leads to high levels of sustainability. This is an aspect that ENGIE has been focussing on for a long time. Throughout the Group, we are using our ‘zero carbon transition as a service’ strategy to pursue our objective: to assist our customers on their path to climate neutrality with low-carbon technologies and services. We are making an important contribution to this aim with the QUANTUM Water.’
Daniel Keller, Head of Sales Support & Product Management
‘Exploiting the opportunities of digitalisation is part of the ENGIE Refrigeration business strategy. To achieve this aim, we connect technologies in intelligent fashion and continue to develop new and pioneering features for our customers. And the QUANTUM Water also features an innovation for the refrigeration industry: for the first time, the chiller no longer needs to be operated on an integrated touch panel at a defined location on the machine; instead, it can be controlled easily on a tablet via smart control. This improves ease of operation for users – and makes the QUANTUM Water the most innovative chiller of its kind currently on the market. I am proud to be part of the team that is launching this new feature on the market.’
Tatiana Köhler, Head of Marketing and Communication
‘Users and operators have seen their needs and expectations of a refrigeration supply change over the last few years. That’s the reason we redesigned our QUANTUM Air in 2018 with a modular system and a smart regulation strategy; both these things have gone down very well on the national and international markets. And that is why we are now transferring these properties to our water-cooled QUANTUM series. This is how we help our customers meet the most stringent economic and ecological requirements for their refrigeration supply.’
Felipe Ruiz-Guerrero, International Sales Engineer
‘Our QUANTUM Water is a real powerhouse: the best match among currently available QUANTUM compressors helps us achieve maximum performance. All in all, the models cover a broad spectrum from 200 kilowatts to 4 megawatts. This makes the chiller suitable for use in a great many industries: examples include the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, vehicle manufacturers and automotive suppliers, and industrial production. The QUANTUM Water is perfect for data centres, as its specific machine concept (chilled water output temperatures >20 °C) perfectly meets the requirements there. Our customers thus benefit from an excellent environmental balance, high energy efficiency and absolute reliability.’

At ENGIE Refrigeration, we set promising standards for numerous industries not only with chillers but also with heat pumps. We are now communicating this more strongly to the outside world with our new corporate visual, which is both eye-catching and forward-looking.
The energy and heat transition are considered to be the central challenges of our time. The use of waste heat offers tangible opportunities for numerous industries in the transition to climate neutrality. With the QUANTUM chiller with optional heat recovery (Green Heat Recovery), ENGIE Refrigeration shows environmentally friendly and economic perspectives for the reuse of heat from refrigeration processes.
20 Jahre QUANTUM, 20 Jahre starke Leistung, hervorragende Betriebssicherheit und hohe Effizienz – der Geburtstag unserer Kältemaschine bietet den perfekten Anlass, um zwei Jahrzehnte der Vorzeigeserie Revue passieren zu lassen.
Digitisation is one of the economic megatrends of our age. Most businesses are reliant on smooth-running information technology (IT) – and thus on data centres, the IT all-rounder. But how can a sensitive digital infrastructure be operated as safely, efficiently and sustainably as possible? With its QUANTUM chiller and SPECTRUM heat pump, ENGIE Refrigeration now takes care of ten local data centres belonging to a German provider – and is breaking new ground for the IT industry in the process.
Due to their environmental impact, refrigeration systems and heat pumps have faced increased scrutiny from environmental organisations, governments and the public for some time. Debate has centred on the greenhouse effect of refrigerants, not least because of planned amendments to the F-Gas Regulation, which will make it more stringent. However, the climate relevance of chillers and heat pumps can only be properly assessed with the help of an ecological balance sheet that includes the entire greenhouse effect of the systems. One popular method of holistic ecological assessment is provided by the TEWI value.
The digital transformation is opening up a wealth of new opportunities for companies. Augmented reality (AR) in particular is providing innovative momentum to Industry 4.0 and making complex processes significantly more efficient. ENGIE Refrigeration has long recognised the potential of this technology for the refrigeration and heating industry and has been working together with the global AR/VR technology leader HOLO-LIGHT since 2017 to integrate AR applications into individual work areas. Jannick Hartmann, Senior Software Sales Manager at HOLO-LIGHT, and Jörn Stiegelmeier, Head of Technology and Development at ENGIE Refrigeration, talk about the benefits of augmented reality for both employees and customers.
There are many chillers, but SPECTRUM Water only exists once. The model is unique in its performance range – this is ensured by the sophisticated product features. What precise added value does this offer to users?
The heating transition starts in buildings. This means that cities and municipalities, with their large number of buildings, play a crucial role on the path to carbon neutrality. What’s the best way to structure the energy transition and heating transition as soon as possible and as successfully as possible? Large heat pumps such as the SPECTRUM Water and thermeco2 can make an important contribution to this endeavour
Heat pumps instead of gas! At a state-of-the-art real-estate complex near the French metropolitan region of Bordeaux, a climate-neutral future is in the air, assisted by a new SPECTRUM Water from ENGIE Refrigeration. In our interview with Roman Steddin, the product manager explains why our heat pump is exactly the right choice for this project.
Anyone who has been in hospital knows that pleasant temperatures assist recovery. A clinic in Bavaria now provides such temperatures with a QUANTUM Water chiller from ENGIE Refrigeration, ensuring that the clinic runs smoothly.
