Tesco and Aerofoil Energy announce major supermarket refrigeration project
Tesco is partnering with Aerofoil Energy as it looks to transform the performance of refrigeration cabinets in its stores via the application of Formula One-derived aerodynamics.
In addition to installing Aerofoils in its supermarkets throughout the UK and Ireland, Tesco will also adopt Aerofoil Energy’s Vortex future-fridge technology, which it says will deliver energy and carbon emissions savings to rival that of fridges with glass doors.
Paul McAndrew of Aerofoil Energy says: “Rolling out Aerofoils across an estate the size of Tesco’s will have a tangible impact on energy consumption at a national level and confirms Aerofoil Energy as the number one choice for shelf-edge technology. But that’s only half the story – adopting our Vortex technology for Tesco’s newbuild cabinets will set a new standard for energy and temperature performance in supermarket refrigeration generally.”
Craig Wilson, Managing Director at Williams Advanced Engineering, comments: “Our mission is to deliver inspired engineering for a sustainable future and it is great news to see the adoption of this technology by such a respected global retailer.”
