Refrigeration Commissioning | Star Refrigeration


Star’s experience includes commissioning for over £350M worth of refrigeration solutions, including ammonia, CO2 and HFC systems.

Our experience covers commissioning a full range of industrial refrigeration plant, including fluid chilling, cold storage, blast chilling and freezing and ice rinks.

Each member of our in-house team of commissioning engineers receives a high level of Star training. All commissioning staff hold relevant refrigerant handling and site safety qualifications.

Industrial contracts are assigned a lead commissioning engineer to oversee the process and provide documentation. Commissioning teams comprise senior engineering staff from Star’s local branch network.

Star have a team of dedicated, qualified and experienced commissioning specialists who are assigned on a project by project basis to ensure new plant is tested, commissioned and set to run in accordance with approved safe procedures, the agreed specification and expectations of the customer.

Each project is assigned a lead commissioning engineer as part of the project team. Each lead commissioning engineer is highly trained with at least 10 years experience in refrigeration systems. On larger projects – Star can support our commissioning efforts on site by utilising additional engineering resource from any one of our local branches across the UK. Our commissioning engineers are qualified to work with refrigeration and heat pump systems with a broad range of primary fluids – ammonia, CO2, HFC systems and other specialised applications. Commissioning performed on-site is done so in a safe, structured manner, following approved procedures and documentation to demonstrate compliance with applicable design and safety codes.

Star have the capability to test and commission our standard chiller products of up to 1.5MW capacity at our manufacturing facility in Renfrew. Standard test procedures exist that can be offered to each customer to ensure that each unit is performing to specification before it is delivered and installed onsite. Options can be offered for witnessed factory acceptance tests (FATs) and noise/acoustic surveys.
