Transcritical CO2 systems are being used at the Winter Olympics for the first time.
The deal is the largest order to date for the young company, launched in the summer of 2020.
The eco-friendly facility is helping Italian OEM ramp up production of CO2 condensing units.
The three-year agreement covers 25 markets where Beijer Ref is present, and more than 260 branches in these markets.
Ammonia is the traditional refrigerant, while CO2 is a newcomer in the country’s cold-storage market.
Chateraise purchased the transcritical system from Miyazawa, which signed an exclusive sales agreement with SCM Frigo last year.
The investment is part of Beijer Ref’s transition from selling single components to also selling OEM products and systems.
The transcritical system will provide 1.1MW (312.8TR) of cooling capacity for the speed and figure skating rink at the Beijing Capital Indoor Stadium.
