“The experience and knowledge of the cold storage industry brought by this team, will allow them to deliver the support and expertise our customers expect from ICS Cool Energy,” said Andy Delday-Roberts, UK Sales Manager Hire at ICS Cool Energy. “ICS Cool Energy is known for its capability to deploy hire units within 24hours to existing customers and for the back-up and service from experienced engineers. Bringing long-standing experience, our cold store team will ensure our customers are in good hands and receive solutions that precisely fit their needs and help them run their operations efficiently and effectively.”
ICS Cool Energy cold store container units can be used in Food and Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Warehouse and other industries, where raw or finished products require temporary or long-term temperature-controlled storage to preserve or increase shelf life. Cold stores can add storage space and deliver high cooling capacity in combination with precise temperature control from fresh to deep frozen, even in the most severe applications with high ambient temperatures, frequent door openings and long running hours. The units can be also applied in R&D applications, where a temperature-controlled environment is required to enable Accelerated Life Testing (ALT) of critical components.
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. The units can also be adapted to meet customer needs with options including telematics, remote monitoring, and Controlled Atmosphere. Customers can also benefit from a modular approach, where multiple cold stores, joined together without connecting walls, can be linked with buildings without time consuming engineering, ground works, or long planning permission process.
