Hussmann, a subsidiary of Japanese OEM Panasonic, has completed its first installation of transcritical CO2 (R744) condensing units in Australia, according to a company statement.

Two 10HP (7.5kW/2.1TR) Panasonic transcritical CO2 condensing units were installed at an Ambey’s Big Apple supermarket in Edmondson Park, a suburb of Sydney. The store held its grand opening on April 29.

“At Hussmann we’re committed to providing innovative climate solutions for a better future,” said Vinney Kumar, General Manager of Australia and Operations Director, Hussmann.

“Our transcritical CO2 condensing unit provides a market-leading energy-efficient solution ensuring optimal performance all year round. We’re proud to have been a part of the installation at Ambey’s Big Apple store in Sydney with our partnership with [contractor] Ultra Refrigeration, which is the first of many to come.”

The CO2 condensing units provide cooling for both medium- and low-temperature Hussmann refrigerated display cases. The cases are equipped with Carel electronic valves to provide close control of evaporator efficiency. In addition, both CO2 condensing units will be equipped with Panasonic Adiabatic Solution kits to “further enhance performance and contribute to reduced running costs.” See the product brochure here.
