Temporary Cold Storage System
200kw Cooling 200kw Low temperature AHU’s
Greenvale Potato’s required additional cold storage space for the Christmas peak.
Unusually high December ambient temperatures were a major concern for storage of their packaged potatoes. Large increases of packaged potato’s are required at this time of year, and it is critical for freshness, that they are stored chilled.
Additional chilled space at 3 Degrees was required for cold store rental for potato’s
Advanced Climate Rentals supplied a temporary 200kw refrigeration system on a 8 week contract. 4x 50kw low temperature AHU’s with electric defrost and control panels.
A Trane ECGAN 212, 400kw hire chiller. A 250kva generator with 1000lt bunded fuel tank. The system proposed was relatively simple. A pressurised Glycol cooling loop was used run in 10 Bar rubber suction and discharge hose. An expansion vessel was fitted to buffer and maintain the system pressure. This was manually filled and pressurised with a multi-stage pump with a 35% Ethylene Glycol mix.
These rental chillers have an integral pump fitted so control was relatively simple utilising an enable signal provided by the master defrost controller for start and stop. The master and slaves can be configured to defrost at the same time- ideal for a single loop chilled water system.
This cold storage system was fitted in under 6 hours and provided seamless operation for 4 weeks maintaining the freshness of the clients potato’s.

A really nice temporary chilled storage project. This fruit storage warehouse was finished to a high specification and has been contracted initially for 2 years.
A great job this one. We were approached to offer a rapid solution for a chilled packing area. Large in size, and to be built within an existing warehouse, the area was to be used for chilled storage and packing of box meals.
To provide a major distribution company with a temporary chilled logistics building. A really good job this one, with an interesting problem to solve.
Cold storage is especially tricky to maintain in readiness for the six or seven weeks of the year when you really need it. Renting equipment when you really need it makes business sense.
ACR were very proud to have been chosen to carry out this strategic project for Shetland Island Council. This project was a slow burner from the-off, with multiple visits to the Island, many options were discussed until the final solution was arrived at.
