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 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.
