As a supplier of LED lightings for refrigerated display cabinets, we provide solutions for illumination of supermarket, commercial refrigeration retrofit project. We are glad to see to see a supermarket gets better sales by retrofitting. Today let’s share a news like below.
The EDEKA market Schwebel (formerly Lebensmittelhaus Schwebel) in the center of Frankenberg was established in the early 1950s. Three generations of the family have been offering and selling food, beverages, and other products for daily life here. The Schwebel family has always attached particular importance to ensuring that all customers feel completely at ease while shopping there.
Due to the aging refrigeration technology, the Schwebel family decided to carry out another climate-friendly conversion and modernization of the store in early 2021. A new bistro, “Karl’s,” in the front of the store invites customers to enjoy a leisurely snack, while a “zero waste” corner with unpackaged products as well as an aisle for vegetarian and vegan products offers added value to nutritionally and environmentally conscious customers. In addition, Tecto refrigerated and freezer cabinets offer more space and help to put products into the spotlight more easily.
Initially, the renovation plan only included the replacement of old refrigeration solutions, but during the cooperation with the Viessmann project team, the layout of the store was also adapted and improved in order to use space more efficiently.
During the conversion phase of 12 weeks, over 80 meters of Viessmann refrigeration and freezer cabinets were installed. These not only ensure long-lasting product freshness but also significant energy savings. For the refrigeration technology, the Schwebel family opted for a modern refrigeration system running with the climate-friendly refrigerant CO2.
Through the conversion and use of modern Viessmann refrigeration solutions operated with climate-friendly refrigerants, an estimated 976,960.5 kg of CO2 can be saved over the next 12 years, which corresponds to the average operating time of refrigeration solutions. This amount of CO2 is comparable to the annual emissions of around 310 mid-range passenger cars.
