Industrial refrigeration plants are substantial energy users, yet often little consideration is given to a plant's energy efficiency and operating costs or its environmental impact.
Potential energy savings at unoptimised plants can be as high as 45.7 per cent.
OEH will help you understand your refrigeration plant and realise savings by:
partnering with you to deliver a specialist energy audit that provides the business case for action
providing you information through case studies, seminars and tours of sites that have implemented efficiency changes.
Energy Saver Industrial Refrigeration Technology Report
This technology report should be read by plant operators, engineers and management of any facility or organisation with significantly sized refrigeration plant.
It outlines 15 energy saving technologies available to increase the energy efficiency of an industrial refrigeration plant. Annual energy savings, capital costs and payback periods have been estimated and examples provided.
The report helps you understand the potential for energy efficiency at your plant and provides guidance for making the most cost-effective energy efficient technology upgrades.

Optimising existing refrigeration equipment or installing new technologies could include:
- variable or floating point condensing temperature strategies
- intelligent compressor staging and capacity control strategies
- defrost management to minimise defrosting power consumption
- variable cold room temperatures to minimise the peak plant load
- variable evaporator fan speed control for cool and cold rooms
- removing system bottlenecks and splitting of blast freezer and cold room suction freezer lines to achieve higher suction temperatures.
