DENMARK: Danfoss is using the upcoming Euroshop exhibition to promote its Smart Store next generation food retail solutions.
Visitors to the company’s stand will be introduced to a wide range of technologies all tied together by the intention to create sustainable supermarkets based on innovative concepts for improved operational and energy efficiency. This will include the latest updates on CO2 refrigeration, smart grid integration, and how intelligent control optimises 24/7 operation.
“With smart and integrated solutions for compressors, refrigerated display cases, cold rooms, HVAC, lighting and connections to external grids we can prove energy savings of up to 50%,” commented Henrik Schurmann, VP Danfoss Food Retail.
“With our Smart Store concepts we demonstrate that connected and sustainable stores are not a future dream, but highly feasible and profitable solutions today.”
Visitors will be able to learn more about compressor racks with heat recovery, variable speed drives and new ejector technology; discover how the supermarket can be transformed from energy consumer to energy producer with a new heat recovery unit and connection to local smart grids; learn how digitalisation and electronic controllers open new opportunities for one-view store management and predictive maintenance; see and experience the new controller tray that handles up to 300 different control variants; and discuss with Danfoss experts whether remote, semi plug-in or plug-in is the right solution
Focus on CO2
One of the special highlights presented by Danfoss at EuroShop 2017 will be its mobile CO2 refrigeration training unit. Here, visitors can get hands on experience with CO2 systems and simulations of refrigeration systems optimised for CO2; notably the brand new ejector technology that brings high energy efficiency CO2 solutions to warmer climates.
Also on show will be the next generation cold chain management system – Cool.it – that is said to offer seamless, cloud-based monitoring of the entire value chain.
Danfoss Smart Store is located in hall 16, stand C73. The CO2 training unit is located in the outside area close to hall 16.
