Innovative Cooling Solution Revitalises Yorkshire Farm’s Production: Newsome Installs State-of-the-Art Chiller

Turnkey Chiller Project Ensures Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in Agricultural Operations

In a groundbreaking project that underscores the synergy between cutting-edge technology and sustainable agricultural practices, Newsome, a leading provider of innovative cooling solutions, has successfully installed a state-of-the-art 600kW chiller for a prominent family-owned farming business based in Yorkshire. The ongoing chiller hire project, has transformed the farm’s cooling infrastructure, ensuring optimal operational conditions and environmental compliance.

The client, known for its specialisation in cultivating root vegetables for major supermarkets, distinguishes itself by handling the entire production process—from growth to distribution—on a single site. Maintaining precise cooling conditions is paramount to ensuring the quality and efficiency of their operations.

The farming company’s existing chiller system experienced a critical failure, necessitating a modern, energy-efficient solution. Facing the challenge of finding a reliable cooling system that aligned with their sustainability goals, the client turned to Newsome for expertise.

Newsome’s team, renowned for its prowess in delivering tailored cooling solutions, embarked on designing a comprehensive turnkey project for the client’s specific needs. The key components of the solution included a cutting-edge 600kW chiller designed to supply chilled water and glycol solution at an exact -2°C. The choice of a low Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerant, R513a, reflected the commitment to both efficiency and environmental responsibility.

Newsome’s technical experts conducted an in-depth evaluation of the client’s facility, considering cooling requirements, infrastructure, and layout. Based on the assessment, Newsome’s engineers crafted a tailored cooling solution that seamlessly integrated into the farm’s operations.

Newsome’s experienced technicians meticulously installed the new 600kW chiller, adhering to industry standards and safety protocols. The installation included a smooth transition to the environmentally friendly R513a refrigerant, in line with regulations and sustainability goals. Rigorous testing validated the chiller system’s performance, energy efficiency, and reliability.

The advanced chiller system replaced outdated equipment, vastly improving operational reliability and the chiller’s ability to maintain -2°C ensured production processes remained uncompromised.

The successful completion of the 600kW chiller installation underscores Newsome’s expertise in tailoring cooling solutions to agricultural and food production clients. The project serves as a testament to the efficacy of collaborative efforts, resulting in heightened efficiency, reliability, and sustainability within critical agricultural processes.
