Innovation of the Year Finalists TO VOTE Attendees of the ATMO Virtual Trade Show (VTS) 2021, to be held online March 30-31, will be able to vote for one of the innovations described on pages 38-42 to be Innovation of the Year. To register for the show, click here.
PowerCO 2OL CO 2 Rack System PowerCO 2 OL is the name of our most powerful refrigeration rack. Its platform is suitable for a variety of large applications and can be designed as a single or dual-temperature solution. It integrates the CO 2 OLtec EVO modulating vapor ejector technology as a standard feature to achieve high energy efficiency – up to 30% energy savings on an annual basis vs. a standard transcritical CO 2 (R744) system. Multiple configurations are offered, including direct expansion, flooded liquid chillers, pump-assisted flooded low-temperature systems and liquid-toliquid heat pumps. The platform can be packaged in either indoor or outdoor configurations, with a cooling capacity up to 1.5MW (426.5TR) with full heat recovery. All functions are managed by a userfriendly and flexible controller.
Five natural refrigerant systems, described by the nominating companies on the following pages, are finalists for a 2021 Innovation of the Year award. The awards will recognize products, introduced since January 2020, having, or expected to have, a significant impact on the market. Awards will be given in Gold, Silver and Bronze categories.
PowerCO 2 OL was launched in 2020 and has already been installed at iconic sites. To name one example, PowerCO 2 OL has been installed at SNØ – Norway's first year-round indoor ski arena – in Lørenskog. Norwegians and others who love winter sports now have the ability to enjoy Nordic and Alpine skiing year-round. How can we achieve these energy efficiency levels?
PowerCO 2 OL works for many high-capacity applications such as: Distributions centers (warehouse, medium- and low- temperature cold storage) Sport venues (ice rink, ski arena) Processes (food processing, butchery, plastic industry) Heat pumps (domestic hot water, heating and hot water production)
Guide to ATMO Virtual Trade Show 2021
PowerCO 2 OL embeds the CO 2 OLtec Evo modulating vapor ejector technology, assisted by a CO 2 pump. This patented technology has raised the bar in high-efficiency performance with up to 30% annual energy consumption (AEC) reduction compared to a "standard" transcritical CO 2 solution. It has enabled CO 2 systems to become a viable alternative in warmer climates as well as providing heat reclaim advantages in cold and mild climates. In addition, the solution becomes a sustainable alternative by using CO 2 , a natural refrigerant, which is safe and non-ozone-depleting, with a GWP of one.
