July 13, 2010
Carrier Corp., the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, continues to have success with its CO2OLtec™ technology, having been selected as a supplier for the new Handelshof Cash & Carry store in Hamm, Germany. This new store is a milestone for Handelshof, as it will be the first store in its chain to install a sustainable and energy efficient CO2OLtec refrigeration system along with a fully integrated high efficiency heat recovery system. With this solution, Handelshof can significantly reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Carrier Corp., a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX), improves the world around us through engineered innovation and environmental stewardship.
Handelshof operates 14 Cash & Carry (C&C) stores across Germany. The new store, to be opened in Hamm in September 2010, will include a Carrier CO2OLtec refrigeration system using CO2, a natural refrigerant.
“For our new Handelshof C&C store in Hamm, we want to implement our corporate master plan for sustainability and environmental safety also in the field of refrigeration systems. The environmentally advanced CO2OLtec technology as well as the efficient use of heat recovery, as provided by our partner Carrier Commercial Refrigeration, is the best solution to ensure the achievement of our goals,” said Wolfgang Baer, CEO, Handelshof Group.
“The refrigeration plant of this store will be equipped with an integrated heat recovery system, which will reduce heating energy consumption by 80 percent. In addition, the state-of-the-art refrigeration system using CO2 refrigerant in a medium- and low- temperature application significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions,” Baer added.
"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. Carrier is proud to support these customers with advanced system design, including integrated heat recovery, installation, and lifetime service.”
“Carrier has the right refrigerant solution for every application, but not every application will have the same refrigerant solution. CO2OLtec is a powerful sustainable solution for food retailers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” Delpech added.
