‘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.’

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.
Food production is one of the most sensitive industries. In this sector, heating supply requirements are particularly exacting. What reliable solutions does ENGIE Refrigeration provide to meet these requirements? The expert Frank Glaser, a key account manager for industrial and commercial heating at ENGIE Refrigeration, explains using the Osatina Group as an example.
What does the heat supply of the future look like? An interdisciplinary team at ENGIE Refrigeration has been focussing on this question for the past few months. The result: our new SPECTRUM Water heat pump, which has been available worldwide since 28 March 2022. Our employees explain the product characteristics and special benefits of this model in our ‘on point.’ magazine.
The redesigned QUANTUM Water from ENGIE Refrigeration has been available for about half a year. How is the model being received on the international market? And which properties do customers appreciate most? Our expert Daniel Keller, head of product and application management at ENGIE Refrigeration, shares his initial conclusions and talks about plans for the coming months.
Beethoven could never have imagined this: artificial intelligence (AI) has now completed his ‘unfinished’ 10th symphony. AI has already been used to complete compositions by Gustav Mahler and Franz Schubert. Applications involving artificial intelligence are finding their way into more and more parts of our lives – and providing entirely new opportunities. ENGIE Refrigeration is ready for the future: we asked our expert Jörn Stiegelmeier, head of technology and development, about the smart refrigeration and heating solutions our users can look forward to.
Nothing works without functioning data centres. They are the backbone of our modern society. And no data centre can operate without refrigeration technology. Chillers secure their uninterruptible supply. Users around the world rely on the QUANTUM models from ENGIE Refrigeration to perform this task.
