Chile’s first CO2 system for retail application

In Chile, the first transcritical CO2 refrigeration system has been installed in a supermarket in Valdivia.

Implemented by the Chile Ministry of Environment, funded by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Chile’s first ever transcritical CO2 supermarket refrigeration system has been installed in a new 5,300 m2 store located in Valdivia.

This transcritical system provides 400 kW of cooling capacity at medium-temperature (MT) and 100 kW at low temperature (LT) and serves 115 MT/LT display cabinets and 30 cold rooms. In addition, the store has implemented efficiency applications such as LED lighting and BMS systems for the intelligent control of all building systems.
