Carrier Commercial Refrigeration has provided the German retailer Handelshof Cash & Carry with its sustainable and energy efficient CO2OLtecTM refrigeration solution as well as a fully integrated high efficiency heat recovery system. The refrigeration system will enable the retailer to significantly reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from the store, which is set to open its doors in September. 

Aspiring to implement their corporate plan for sustainability and environmental safety also in the field of refrigeration systems for their new store in Hamm, Germany, the retailer opted for a natural refrigerant solution and partnered with CO2 specialist Carrier Commercial Refrigeration.

"Carrier is pleased to be given the opportunity to participate in such an exciting endeavor for Handelshof Group," said Philippe Delpech, president, Carrier Commercial Refrigeration. "The success of CO2OLtec is both supported by a best-in-class CO2 refrigeration design and by visionary customers such as Handelshof Group who want to fundamentally change the environmental impact of their enterprise."

The installation for Handelshof

The 12,500 square meter store will feature Carrier’s state-of-the-art CO2OLtecTM refrigeration system using CO2 refrigerant in a medium and low temperature, comprising of:
  • 100 mid temperature and low temperature cabinets
  • 29 cold storage and freezer rooms
Moreover, the refrigeration plant of this store will be equipped with an integrated heat recovery system, which will reduce heating energy consumption by 80%.

Energy savings and subsidies

CO2OLtec allows Handelshof to realise energy cost savings over the full lifetime of the refrigeration system. In addition, the retailer benefits from investment subsidies given by the German Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA), while avoiding any refrigerant taxes and reducing its impact on global warming.
