The R290 glycol-based Hydroloop system from Freor system was installed in a Fajne Potraviny store in Košice in early 2022.
The move is part of a DKR 2.5 billion (US$366 million) investment in energy efficiency and an effort to reduce Salling Group’s reliance on Russian gas.
The reversible heat pumps provide both space heating and cooling for the warehouse and offices.
The Stratos VP10 system is being tested at producer Secon’s manufacturing facility.
Its new catalog includes industrial monoblocks, waterloop evaporators and chillers, all for R290.
Fujinetsu and Meiwa say they are aiming to launch a market-ready product by April 2024.
