Acting sustainably helps us secure the future of our planet. In particular, energy-intensive industries – among them the refrigeration technology industry – need to contribute towards more sustainability. Chillers are essential here, as they are distinguished by high energy efficiency and low carbon emissions. We at ENGIE Refrigeration are aware of this important task: we are working steadily and with focus to offer our customers the highest-quality, most efficient and most sustainable solutions for their refrigeration and heat generation. Our aspiration: ENGIE Refrigeration wants to lead the way in the industry when it comes to carbon-neutral technologies.
We at ENGIE have dedicated ourselves to the mission of ‘zero carbon transition as a service’. Our most important strategic aim is to help our customers optimise their carbon footprint with low-carbon technologies and services. We at ENGIE Refrigeration are certain that energy-intensive industries in particular – which also include air conditioning and refrigeration technology – have a special responsibility when it comes to realising eco-friendly and sustainable products. We are facing up to this task. That is why we have focussed for many years on making it a reality – with success. Our company produces and sells chillers and heat pumps that, in comparison to many other models on the market, are highly energy-efficient and low-carbon, and thus especially eco-friendly: from the Amonum, the PENSUM Air and the QUANTUM Air to our thermeco2 high-temperature heat pumps.
But what is it that makes our individual models so efficient and thus sustainable? And for which respective purposes and industries are they suitable? Starting now, we will report on this matter continuously in our CoolDown magazine – under the motto of ‘leading the zero carbon transition’. Because there is one thing that our chillers definitely have in common: in terms of carbon emissions, they raise the refrigeration technology used by our customers for all types of application to a new level.
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.
Demand for heating is increasing around the world: experts predict growth rates of around 5 per cent for the global market for local and district heat in the coming years. Conventional heat supplies based on fossil fuels were often chosen in the past, but heat pumps represent an investment in a sustainable future – for example, the thermeco2 high-temperature heat pump and the Spectrum heat pump from ENGIE Refrigeration.
