Cold Store Hire Supports Camerons Brewery’s Festival Success

Back to Case Studies

Efficient cold storage container from ICS Cool Energy ensures smooth beer service for Camerons Brewery.

Camerons Brewery Ltd., the largest independent brewer in the North East of England, partnered with ICS Cool Energy to secure a reliable cold storage solution for a recent music festival, ensuring a smooth experience for both customers and the service team.


For four consecutive years, Camerons Brewery has played an important role in a prominent festival, setting up the main bar and keeping beer and drinks chilled for attendees. Previously, Camerons relied on cold storage vans from a different provider, which ceased operations. As Camerons Brewery sought new options, they encountered difficulties with other suppliers due to restrictive hire terms and limited service areas.

“We were in a tight spot when our previous cold storage provider shut down. We quickly needed a solution that could meet our specific requirements without the complications we faced with other companies,” said Simon Ritson, brand ambassador for Camerons Brewery Ltd.


ICS Cool Energy stepped in to fill this gap by offering a Cold Store container tailored to Camerons Brewery’s needs. Following a prompt discussion over the phone, ICS Cool Energy arranged for a unit to be delivered, positioned on-site, and ready for immediate use.

“ICS Cool Energy’s responsiveness was impressive. They confirmed our needs over the phone and had their unit delivered and set up without any hassle, right on time” noted Simon Ritson. ”The cold store container turned out to be more spacious than we anticipated, which gave us additional flexibility and storage capacity.”

ICS Cool Energy temperature-controlled containers are available in 10ft, 20ft and 40ft length and feature tried and tested refrigeration technology from Thermo King, a leader in transport temperature control solutions. The units can be plugged in the 360-500 Volt 50 or 60 Hz power supply to ensure cold or frozen temperatures in the container.

Designed originally for global, seagoing reefer applications, ICS Cool Energy containers are equipped with features that make them suitable as static cold stores. They are washable with wash down drains, have man trapped person alarms, lighting inside emergency escape release and conform to B.R.C. audit standards.


ICS Cool Energy’s cold store container provided ample space and maintained the desired temperature control, ensuring the beer was stored at the right temperature throughout the festival, with no dispensing issues. The unit’s capability to handle high ambient temperatures and frequent door openings proved essential for the festival environment.

“ICS Cool Energy made the entire process easy, from delivery to collection. Everything went smoothly, and we plan to use them for future events. Their reliability was crucial for us, and it ensured our customers enjoyed their experience at the festival,” concluded Simon Ritson
