A2LsysteMatch Installation – 4 Systems
Marstair were approached to provide an A2L solution for cold room systems at Kibworth. Four A2LsysteMatch systems were successfully deployed and have been evaluated against CO2 technology as both refrigerants provide future-proof solutions.
An evaluation was conducted against the former CO2 solution from an Energy, Emissions, CAPEX, Volume Charge and Total Cost of Ownership, with the results shown below:
Annual Energy Consumption – Reduced by 21.1%
Marstair through its A2LsysteMatch product have helped Coop significantly eliminate the current energy price increases in its Kibworth Store.
Annual Emissions – Reduced by 31.4%
The low GWP of R454A combined with the energy efficiency of our A2LsysteMatch product is such that it significantly reduces the TCO2*.
*Based on a 3% leak rate and an emissions factor of 0.21233.
Capital Cost – Reduced by 43.6%
With a similar installation process to HFC equipment, A2LsysteMatch can be installed and commissioned, with very little additional training and at a much lower overall cost than CO2.
Refrigerant Charge Volume – Reduced by 81.4%**
Our unique design keeps the refrigerant charge level to a minimum. This allow A2LsysteMatch to keep within 20% of the LFL when installed within the smallest of cold rooms.
**Each system meeting BS EN-378:2016.
Total Cost of Ownership – Reduced by 25.4%***
As the F-Gas phase down starts to bite A2LsysteMatch is a cost-effective alternative to CO2 in all Coldroom applications.
***Based on 20-year energy performance + CAPEX.
Marstair provided significant value at the Co-op’s Kibworth store!
“The Co-op are delighted that their store at Kibworth has been future-proofed with low-GWP refrigeration systems that save energy, capital cost whilst also reducing system emissions. When compared to CO2, the four A2LsysteMatch systems will save an incredible >25% across a 20-year Total Cost of Ownership!”
