After recently opening the first CO2 transcritical stores in warm regions, Romania and Spain, retail giant Carrefour plans to trial the system in other European regions with warm climates, with at least 10 new CO2 transcritical installations planned in Italy in 2014. R744.com has talked with Carrefour, enEX and Dorin about these exciting projects to find out their views on the rollout of CO2 transcritical technology in higher temperature regions.
After the summer season, we will have a better analysis in order to decide regarding acceleration of deployment of CO2 transcritical technology in Europe,” pointed out Jean-Michel Fleury (Carrefour group).
I estimate between 15 and 20 systems with transcritical CO2 will be added in Italy this year. I believe also that starting from 2015 there will be a strong increase, so all commercial refrigeration systems above 50 kW will be with CO2 starting from 2020, which means several hundred installations per year,” Girotto said.
