Cold Storage Construction

Cold storage construction design and build services require expertise in the intricacies of these very specialized facilities.

Refrigerated warehouses, frozen food distribution centers and grocery freezers are the highest energy consuming sector per cubic foot in the world.

To help reduce energy consumption and improve facility efficiencies cold storage freezers must be properly designed and built, and they must integrate the most energy-efficient systems available.

Viking Colds proven Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system allows you to give your client a unique solution that addresses their post-construction priorities: temperature stability, energy costs, and maintenance.

Submit more competitive bids that address all of these priorities.

TES leverages phase change material to store energy in the form of cold for future use. It is engineered to freeze/thaw at the freezers designated temperature setpoint. This allows the refrigeration equipment to be turned off for long periods of time while maintaining stable temperatures in the freezer.

The Viking Cold TES system has no mechanical components and is the perfect solution to managing energy demand and load inside cold storage facilities. Being system agnostic, we leverage the existing refrigeration equipment to minimize energy costs while simultaneously maintaining temperature control.

Our Thermal Energy Storage system works well for new construction, retrofit or refurbishment projects.
