Star Refrigeration shines at UK awards night

Manchester, UK: Star Refrigeration installation for Lineage Logistics has been named Refrigeration Project of the Year’at the National ACR and Heat Pump Awards this month.

Measured reductions in energy usage equating to one-third of that of UK’s ‘Best Practice’ guidelines won Star the accolade. The project supported Lineage’s plans for expansion by creating 15,000 pallet spaces of frozen warehouse capacity at its new site in Great Haddon.

Star offered Lineage “an affordable, robust industrial refrigeration solution that delivers high efficiency and meets the needs of customers while exceeding expectations with regards to improved live cycle costs and energy consumption”.

One of the reasons Star was able to deliver the Lineage Logistics project so successfully was its Azanefreezer 2.0 (pictured above), which was awarded ‘Refrigeration Product of the Year’.

The Lineage Logistics Azanefreezer is a modular, air cooled, low charge packaged ammonia freezer and its unique design allows for a reduction of the system’s ammonia refrigerant charge of up to 96% when compared to traditional pumped recirculation ammonia systems.

Celebrating its third win of the evening, Star was also awarded ‘Chiller Product of the Year’ for its pioneering Azanechiller 2.0 – which set a new benchmark in chiller performance, with efficiency figures up to 146% higher than the European EcoDesign Directive for low temperature cooling, up to 100% higher for comfort cooling chillers, and up to 74% higher for high temperature chiller applications.

The efficient, low charge ammonia chiller has delivered energy savings and reduced carbon emissions for food producers, temperature-controlled storage, pharmaceutical, petrochemical and ice and leisure companies.

Star was Highly Commended in its fourth and final nominated category of ‘ACR Contractor of the Year’ – having been recognised for its significant product development, breadth of work over the past year – including a range of innovative range of CO2 and low charge ammonia refrigeration solutions and heat pumps which will also support the UK in reaching its goal of net-zero emissions by 2050 – and its commitment to developing young people to become the next generation of leaders.
