We engineered an innovative solution to temporary cold storage in Scotland on the Shetland Islands.
A suitable building on the quay was identified. With a large clear span area it was ideal. We recommended building a modular steel framed “box” insulated with 50mm sandwich panels. Designed carefully, it it gave the largest internal floor plan available from the existing warehouse.
Cooling would be supplied by 4 independent cooling systems, each comprising of a 80kw chiller and 50kw low temperature ahu. A key advantage of stand alone systems is that there is no single point of failure. It was calculated that 2 systems would maintain the temperature.
With a limited 100A supply to the building generation was specified, again, for 100% redundancy, twin tandem running sets were specified.
