CHALLENGES FACING SUPERMARKETS:

Energy

is among the top two operational expenses for a cold storage facility.

High Costs

Peak demand charges can be up to 70% of your electricity bill.

24 Hours a Day

Temperature control is required around the clock to keep food safe.


REDUCE ENERGY COSTS BY INTELLIGENTLY USING YOUR REFRIGERATION SYSTEM

Viking Cold’s Thermal Energy Storage System makes it possible for supermarkets to protect what is vital while intelligently storing and deploying refrigeration to reduce energy costs. Our Thermal Energy Storage System is a passive system that never needs maintenance and works in parallel with existing refrigeration systems. As a result, electricity peak demand is reduced by up to 90 percent, a significant cost savings. 

The system can be easily installed without any upgrades to your current refrigeration equipment, adding redundancy and maximizing savings.

Viking Cold Thermal Energy Storage System Reduces Frozen Gourmet’s Energy Costs by Over 27%

For businesses in the frozen food market, energy costs are a major expense. Reducing the electricity used in storage facilities directly impacts the bottom line, making it a top priority for owners and operators. Cold storage operators who make the move to an innovative thermal energy storage system will realize significant cost savings, enhanced product monitoring, and protection for low temperature cold storage. Frozen Gourmet, a dedicated Nestlé facility and a leading ice cream distribution company in California, recently installed a Viking Cold Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system and reduced energy consumption by over 27%. The patented Viking Cold TES system was installed at the end of 2016, and Frozen Gourmet quickly realized significant energy savings. Since the beginning of 2017, the facility has reduced energy consumption by over 45,000 kWh, a number that continues to grow each month. In addition, the passive TES system stores energy at night for use during the day, shifting more compressor runtime to evening hours. This enables greater efficiency during periods of time with lower ambient temperatures.
