GEA honored with “Contractor of the Year 2020”

The British Refrigeration & Air Conditioning magazine (RAC) has now honored GEA with the RAC Cooling Industry Awards in the category “Contractor of the Year 2020”. The globally renowned award recognizes companies that have made a special commitment to environmentally friendly and innovative solutions in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry. GEA also came out on top in the “Building Energy Project of the Year” category, receiving a “highly commended” rating. 
For GEA, the Quorn® Foods project involved installing a new compressor to improve performance – in parallel with replacing a faulty refrigeration system during a planned shutdown at the food manufacturer’s plant at its site in North Yorkshire, UK. By investing in a GEA Grasso Conversion Kit (GGCK), Quorn® Foods benefited from a larger compressor that replaced aging equipment and increased cooling capacity by an additional 7%. This not only improved the site’s efficiency, but also resulted in energy savings and a reduced carbon footprint. GEA also upgraded the existing control system with a new OMNI Retrofit Panel control (GORP). This state-of-the-art control and management system ensures optimal operation of the plant.
