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.
Transcritical systems in Suzhou and Wuxi are being used to meet the increasing demand for natural refrigerant-based systems in the country.
Fresh Choice Papamoa and Countdown Hāwera stores both opened this year, each with an energy efficient transcritical CO2 system.
