The Heatcraft Transcritical journey continues

Extract from Accelerate Australia & NZ / Winter 2018

Woolworths has commissioned its second transcritical CO2 system at a new store in Wadalba, New South Wales. The retailer sourced the Kirby eCOBoost system from Heatcraft, which met the technical brief.

The recently supplied transcritical rack from Heatcraft was not only an opportunity to deliver a fully integrated system, but to also reduce commissioning time by working together with WRI.

"We were able to use our in-house engineering and design capability to evolve the Kirby ‘Ready Connect’ switchboard to meet the specific requirements of the Woolworths E-Spec," says Heatcraft Segment Engineer Douglas Herkess.

"Heatcraft invited the Woolworths commissioning team to the Milperra facility during dry-testing and pre-commissioning to observe and complete the testing with the Heatcraft team. This was an important step for the commissioning team to have a complete understanding of the system being delivered prior to its arrival on site," Herkess says.

The Milperra visit provided the opportunity to fine-tune the system and problem-solve in a factory environment, which ultimately reduced the on-site commissioning time. “We’re very pleased with the end result,” Herkess says.
