Food retailer COOP opened a propane-refrigerated store last week in Delft, a city in southern Netherlands, according to OEM Freor.

Freor equipped the store with a hydroloop glycol refrigeration system with propane-based cases and cabinets. The system uses single-circuit integral R290 refrigerators and freezers. The installation of inverter compressors allows additional energy savings.

The R290-based freezers are optimized for small stores with a limited trading area.

Energy efficiency and sustainability were two key priorities for the design of the refrigeration system in the COOP store, said Freor. The equipment works with Carel’s local monitoring system to supervise access to mobile devices through a Wi-Fi connection, further reducing energy consumption.
