Sysco: investing in low-carbon solutions with ILICO2
Within the framework of the work on extending the warehouse at the Lagny-Le-Sec site (northern France), Sysco has invested in a low-carbon refrigeration solution that uses natural refrigerants: ILICO2.
The complexity of this extension project was in the need to ensure service continuity throughout the works. To address this requirement, ENGIE Solutions had to build a second warehouse adjacent to the first, and link up the two networks without breaking the cold chain.
A technical challenge that was designed, developed and delivered in ten months.
This project has reduced the site's energy consumption and has prevented 1400 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
An innovative refrigeration production technology
To meet Sysco’s requirements, ENGIE Solutions proposed a low-carbon ILICO2 refrigeration solution, which uses natural refrigerants. The total heat recovered from the refrigeration system means significant reductions in energy consumption.
ENGIE Solutions performed all of the installation studies and managed the whole project, from manufacturing the sub-assemblies to their commissioning in order to optimise the facility.
Sysco now has a long-lasting and extremely high-performance facility which produces 5 MW of refrigeration. The collaboration with ENGIE Solutions helped undertake more in-depth analyses and generate even more energy savings, and resulted in the invention of a bespoke solution with automated reporting via a supervision tool created especially for Sysco.
