Star cuts energy costs by 40% at Newport distribution centre


Astrid Prado

Marketing Manager

Renowned for our expertise in temperature controlled storage, Star has enabled another leading distribution firm to cut annual energy costs by 40% at its facility in Wales.

Working with the company's technical staff, Star designed and installed an environmentally conscious refrigeration plant for a cold storage facility at the Newport, South Wales site. The ammonia system replaced an existing plant that operated on R22 - an ozone depleting refrigerant currently being phased out by EU legislation.

The global logistics specialist was looking for an energy efficient cooling system to serve a frozen food cold store. Star supplied a bespoke ammonia refrigeration plant for the cold store which houses six insulated chambers with fully automated doors and has a total volume of around 31,500 cubic metres.
