Industrial and commercial refrigeration systems are experiencing increases in running costs due to skyrocketing energy and electricity prices. September 03, 2012
With its abundant domestic resources of fossil fuel, Australia would theoretically be unburdened by concerns regarding energy price security. Recent developments in the Australian market like higher network charges and carbon tax, however, can threaten this security. To alleviate costs concerns from industries that require high quality refrigeration systems round the clock, industrial and commercial refrigeration expert Coldstream Industrial Services recently introduced new energy efficient initiatives in designing, modifying, and maintaining refrigeration systems.
Lynne Chester, an energy and regulatory expert at the University of Sydney, has co-written a paper to be published in the Australian Journal of Social Issues that discusses the various factors that affect household electricity prices and the impact of "energy poverty" in Australia. In the paper, Chester shows that New South Wales households experienced an 80 per cent increase in electricity prices between 2007 and 2012, and Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, and Western Australia experienced increases of about 60 per cent. The paper also says that further increases of 33 to 42 per cent are expected over the next two years.
Coldstream Industrial Services has 43 years of experience in designing, installing, monitoring, and maintaining Ammonia, CO2, and Freon refrigeration systems—the lifeblood of industries whose functions revolve around industrial and commercial refrigeration. Sydney cold storage distribution centres, food manufacturers, poultry processors, abattoirs, energy suppliers, and pharmaceutical, construction, and marine companies are just a few examples of businesses that rely on top quality refrigeration systems that run 24/7. The company's renewed focus is on helping refrigeration plants experience optimal energy efficiency through the use of quality German technologies and components to design and install new refrigeration systems or apply modifications to existing industrial plants.
"With Coldstream Industrial Services, your industrial refrigeration and commercial refrigeration system is being managed and maintained to the highest possible standards so it runs as efficiently as possible for the long haul and won’t drain your profits in an environment of escalating power costs," emphasises a Coldstream Industrial Services spokesperson. This commitment to professional quality and service has enabled the company to consistently deliver average falls of 28 per cent in power consumption for its clients over the past seven years.
Aside from designing, installing, or modifying new and existing industrial refrigeration systems, Coldstream Industrial Services also performs energy efficiency audits to identify and improve critical areas of underperformance that may be placing a strain on a company's operating costs. And because the last thing an industrial-scale refrigeration plant needs is a breakdown, this refrigeration expert offers fully customised service agreements that include scheduled, emergency, and planned maintenance services.
"When you engage Coldstream Industrial Services to manage your industrial refrigeration plant, you don’t just get technicians that turn up to do run-of-the-mill service and maintenance. You get a highly professional industrial refrigeration system orientated team focussed on running your system at peak efficiency so you can significantly reduce your energy costs," the spokesperson adds.
With its dedication to industrial and commercial refrigeration system safety, energy efficient designs, and best-practice maintenance strategies, Coldstream Industrial Services is poised to deliver significant and immediate cuts in energy consumption—important developments for any cold storage and CO2 and Ammonia refrigeration operators all over Australia.
