ALDI Banksia Grove (WA)
13 August 2017
26th Western Australia opening for our partner ALDI in a lovely chilly yet sunny morning! The supermarket chain opened a brand new store at Banksia Grove (WA), a northern Perth suburb. The store is right next to the Woolworths Banksia Grove, which our Company is currently building as well.
This new format ALDI store displays redesigned shelving and expanded wooden produce bays, as well as our energy-efficient chillers: Epta Group Strateo chest freezers and Kinley top freezers which utilise HC refrigerants and have VSD compressor control. The main refrigeration plant operates with a Epta Pack utilising CO2 R744 (GWP=1) and R134a for the medium temperature display cases. The Sub Critical Hybrid CO2 / R134a design delivers a reduction in the carbon footprint of the plant.
Other energy saving initiatives are electronic expansion valves, variable speed drives on condenser fans and capacity control for compressors. The store manager can supervise the case temperatures and plant operation via a centralised Danfoss control panel.
