The countries – Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Denmark – are seeking feedback on their proposal by September 19.
The three-year agreement covers 25 markets where Beijer Ref is present, and more than 260 branches in these markets.
With high heat transfer, plate models support range of natural refrigerants.
The system is aimed at restaurants, small grocery stores and cold rooms, initially in Sweden.
The AXP82 brazed plate heat exchanger offers wider capacity range, better fatigue performance and lower pressure drop.
The investment is part of Beijer Ref’s transition from selling single components to also selling OEM products and systems.
Beijer Ref CEO Per Bertland is convinced that the rest of the world will follow the path that Europe is taking towards natural refrigerants.
New requirements for ice rinks and arenas in Olympic and World Curling Federation (WCF) competitions, issued by the WCF, mention only natural refrigerant CO2.
