Carrier installs 500th CO2 system

Carrier has announced a major achievement in its deployment of carbon dioxide refrigeration technology with the 500th installation of its Cooltec CO2 booster system. 

The manufacturer said the 500 systems across Europe will reduce emissions by 137,100 t CO2e, equivalent to taking 37,200 cars off the road. 

“Carrier is proud to lead European retailers towards more sustainable technologies,” said Matti Kuivalainen, president, Carrier Commercial Refrigeration, Europe.

The system, installed in a Familia supermarket in Friesoythe, Germany, will provide both cooling and heating for the store. Carrier claims the installation will cut store energy costs by 35 per cent while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50 per cent.

Robert Meyer, director, corporate technology at Familia group owner Bünting said: “With a new shop, the management of the building’s energy and the reduction of the operating costs are major items. In terms of sustainability, we strive to find an environmentally sound solution. 

“In this context, we have opted for Carrier’s Integral system which enables new levels of energy efficiency combined with a significant improvement in the store’s carbon emissions.” 

The system in Friesoythe includes a heat recovery module and additional heat pump to meets all of the building’s heating and cooling requirements, eliminating the need for traditional heating systems Carrier said.
