GENIUM heat & refrigeration containers offer many advantages. These include integrated safety equipment, ventilation, heating, lighting, and highly flexible transport characteristics. We present the design and equipment of GENIUM containers in detail.
Modular hot & cold water systems in a compact design impress with numerous advantages. Not only can such container systems ensure a smooth supply of heat and refrigeration, they can also be adapted easily to individual requirements. They have a small set-up footprint, for example, and can be set up flexibly almost anywhere outside a building. GENIUM containers are designed like machine rooms with all the safety equipment required for their use; this reduces the work that the customer has to do to connect the system electrically and hydraulically to the building’s system periphery. This means there is no need for a machine room in the spaces to be supplied with heat and refrigeration, thus focus can be placed on the actual intended purpose of those spaces. Container systems also function as a foundation for re-cooling systems. This means there is no need for additional frames for cooling towers.
In addition, container systems do not usually involve complex construction permit procedures. Interfaces have been reduced to a minimum, thus reducing administrative effort.
Container systems have another huge advantage: they are fairly easy to handle. As soon as spatial conditions change, i.e. because of rebuilding at the company, the cold water system in the container can be repositioned as a self-contained system. The container functions as transport packaging and protects the system from harmful environmental influences. The design is energy-efficient and saves space.
The Amonum chiller from ENGIE made its debut in the market in 2013 and runs on ammonia, an eco-friendly refrigerant. The Amonum series impresses with, among other things, a speed-controlled piston compressor and an innovative evaporation system. Stepless speed control allows the refrigeration capacity of the Amonum to be adapted to refrigeration requirements while retaining maximum energy efficiency. Ammonia is considered an eco-friendly refrigerant, but the safety requirements for running ammonia chillers are relatively strict. This can scare off interested parties. When the Amonum is integrated in a container, it becomes a turnkey refrigeration solution that meets the safety requirements and reduces effort for the operating company to a minimum, because all necessary components are combined in one place.
Compact design meets efficient refrigeration for Gulf News in Dubai. Each container could independently produce refrigeration. The refrigeration is then fed into a refrigeration network and ensures that each container is redundant.
Due to the age of the chiller it was not possible to refurbish the old R22 system at Nordmark; this would have been an unwise choice with regards to the costs - here a new refrigeration solution had to be found.
Alongside mounting and welding work, Paul Bippus GmbH also produces precision turned parts for breaking and steering systems, emission control systems and diesel fuel injection systems from materials which are difficult to cut. Due to ever-increasing demand for precision turned parts, this supplier to the automobile industry decided to build a new production site in Oberndorf in 2004. In this case, the technology for cooling the production processes proved to be a particular challenge for Bippus.
The dairy industry is both energy-intensive and particularly demanding when it comes to cooling and heating. A solution that convinces with quality, efficiency and climate friendliness is therefore essential. How ENGIE Refrigeration manages this task for a specialist in drying and evaporating technology with a thermeco2 high-temperature heat pump and ensures sustainable dairy production in the process, Frank Glaser, Key Account Manager Industrial & Commercial Heating, reveals in an interview.
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.
