Optimization and retrofit at refrigerated warehouse saved 41% of energy

We have completed another industrial refrigeration retrofit and optimization project at Erb Transportation warehouse in Baden, Ontario. Annual energy savings for the whole refrigeration plant are estimated at 41%. This time GreenQ worked under project management of Arcadian Projects and in cooperation with Davis Energy. Our contribution to the project was a complex optimisation [...]

How much energy your freezer wastes?

I can't say how much energy your freezer wastes. I do not have a crystal ball, but we saw a few freezers at other companies and I have condensed our observations in a short mock Q&A with a plant manager: Q. Might our freezers work at their best efficiency? A. Yes, it is possible. [...]

Our Refrigeration Optimization project won Clean50 Top Project Award

GreenQ Partners, an engineering-consulting firm based in Toronto, has been awarded a prestigious Clean50 Top Project award for Industrial Refrigeration Optimization project completed in 2019. Refrigeration plants are typically among the biggest electricity consumers in the food manufacturing process, as they are set up without consideration for minimizing electricity consumption. [...]

How does energy waste look like in industrial refrigeration?

We continue industrial refrigeration optimization project aimed at energy consumption reduction without compromise of refrigeration capacity. At first stage we study the system. Study through direct observation and through analysis of directly measured energy consumption data on all parts of the refrigeration system - from compressors to condenser fans and pumps. This data in combination [...]

Energy use reduction at industrial refrigeration plant through adjustment of operating set points

How valuable would it be for your business to cut the energy use of an industrial refrigeration plant by 30%, while still supporting the same load? To do so with a short payback? What if incentives halved the payback? This is what we are doing. GreenQ Partners has completed a pilot project at a refrigeration [...]
