Tesco chills out with new refrigeration technology

Tesco chills out with new refrigeration technology
Monday July 22 2019

Tesco will be utilising Formula One-derived aerodynamics as it upgrades it’s refrigeration cabinets

It’s installing Aerofoils in their supermarkets throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as adopting Aerofoil Energy’s Vortex future-fridge technology, delivering energy and carbon emissions savings to rival that of fridges with glass doors.
 
Open-fronted fridges are a large consumer of power in supermarkets. The Aerofoil, from Aerofoil Energy, uses aerodynamics developed with Williams Advanced Engineering to guide cold air more efficiently down the front of the fridge. 

Warmer aisles 

This results in substantially less cold air being lost from the unit, resulting in lower energy use, fewer carbon emissions and warmer aisles in stores.  

When applied across the major UK retailers that have ordered or installed them, Aerofoils have the potential to save annually the equivalent of a month's worth of the domestic CO2 emissions from a city the size of Manchester.
 
Craig Wilson, MD of Williams Advanced Engineering, said:  “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.”
