Aggreko launches emergency cold storage unit


Cold storage warehouses will be able to immediately recover from breakdowns due to Aggreko’s new temporary air cooled low temperature AC units.

Delivering 100kW of design cooling capacity at -22°C air outlet temperature, the machine is a plug and play solution which is housed in a 20ft container. The temporary solution can ensure that stored refrigerated products are safeguarded thanks to Aggreko’s 24/7 emergency response team, removing the hassle and cost of moving stock.

Available as an air- or water-cooled machine, it can cool down existing cold stores to freezing temperatures as low as -40°C, helping the cold storage and logistics industry to blast freeze during peak production or in case of emergency. Importantly, interference with any cold store warehouse is minimised because the Aggreko unit is installed outside, increasing safety and avoiding costly installation fees.

The units also allow for temporary cooling during planned shutdowns, allowing the operation of the cold store to continue while a fixed cooling installation is being maintained or upgraded.

Matt Watson, Sales Manager at Aggreko, commented: “Companies who rely on cold storage warehouses face two risks: not having enough capacity during peak production and system failure. Our new unit helps increase production levels and is available to hire, avoiding expensive upgrade of the existing warehouse. It can also be delivered and installed at short notice, meaning production isn’t disrupted or damaged.”

Other features of the unit include Aggreko’s wireless temperature sensors and built-in management system, which controls the temperature of the air, even when a system is out of order.

Aggreko’s access to temporary power generators also means warehouses can be supplied with enough energy if no electricity is available from the grid.
