The European Union has set itself a number of climate goals: one of these is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 per cent from 1990 levels by 2030. In this context, it is especially important that the more energy-intensive industries such as refrigeration and climate control technology contribute towards an increase in energy efficiency and therefore to a reduction in carbon emissions. ENGIE Refrigeration GmbH from Lindau on Lake Constance, Germany, is aware of this task and is therefore contributing to greater sustainability, above all with its chillers from the QUANTUM Air series.
ENGIE Refrigeration launched the redesigned air-cooled QUANTUM Air series on the international market in June 2019. All 28 model variants in the series feature a superlative refrigeration capacity, a convenient control system, excellent serviceability and maximum efficiency. The last-mentioned aspect in particular was especially important to the refrigeration and heating specialist from Lindau on Lake Constance when it overhauled its time-tested QUANTUM series. Measures to increase energy efficiency play an important role in lowering carbon emissions and thereby contributing to the climate goals of the European Union, which must now be implemented for product groups relevant to energy consumption, for example, in the context of the Ecodesign Directive. ‘We at ENGIE Refrigeration are working actively and continuously to offer our customers highly efficient, powerful and sustainable solutions for refrigeration,’ says Jochen Hornung, CEO of ENGIE Refrigeration. ‘In this regard, we are setting a new standard on the worldwide market, especially with our new QUANTUM Air chillers.’
The air-cooled QUANTUM Air chillers from ENGIE Refrigeration are currently among the most high-quality and efficient chillers in the world. Thanks to their great energy efficiency, the greenhouse gas emissions of QUANTUM Air devices are so low that these machines already meet the future requirements of the Ecodesign Directive that will apply from 2021 (Tier 2). The air-cooled QUANTUM Air in version A1250 with a refrigeration capacity of 1,200 kilowatts is a good example for demonstrating the huge potential for savings that such chillers can deliver.
