New QUANTUM WATER for maximum efficiency - ENGIE Refrigeration further develops water-cooled QUANTUM series

27 April 2021

ENGIE Refrigeration's QUANTUM refrigeration machines have been among the best quality and most powerful models on the international refrigeration market for years. In order to ensure this high standard, the refrigeration and heating specialist from Lindau on Lake Constance is continuously developing its machines. One result of this strategy is the newly designed water-cooled QUANTUM series: Starting from the launch on June 28, 2021, the new QUANTUM WATER will be available in 47 versions worldwide.

Adapting the refrigerating machines to current and future customer requirements – ENGIE Refrigeration pursues this goal with the new design of the water-cooled QUANTUM series. The needs and desires of users and operators for their cooling supply have changed in recent years. Jochen Hornung, Managing Director of ENGIE Refrigeration, says: "About two years ago we redesigned our QUANTUM AIR with a modular modular principle; This approach has been very well received by our customers. Similarly, the efficiency and sustainability of a refrigeration system are becoming increasingly important. We are taking these developments into account with the new design of our water-cooled QUANTUM series". ENGIE Refrigeration thus operates in the spirit of the "Zero Carbon Transition as a Service" mission of the French ENGIE Group: The key strategic objective is to help customers with low-carbon technologies and services reduce their carbon2 footprint. Thanks to their revised properties, the refrigeration machines will make an important contribution to this.

QUANTUM WATER sets new standards

The new QUANTUM WATER will be available on the international market from Monday, 28 June 2021 and will replace the previous water-cooled QUANTUM W, QUANTUM B, QUANTUM X and QUANTUM G series. At launch, ENGIE Refrigeration offers a total of 47 model variants with a modular design. Customers can choose between the refrigerants R-515B, R-134a, R-513A and R-1234ze. All machines require a smaller amount of refrigerant than the previous series – an important aspect in terms of sustainability. In addition, state-of-the-art technology components and optimized control and regulation options ensure even higher efficiency, especially at partial load. New compressors allow a higher cooling output than was previously the case with water-cooled QUANTUM refrigerators: In the future, the QUANTUM WATER models will cover the full range of power from 200 kilowatts to four megawatts. For even higher output ranges between four and 11.5 megawatts, the QUANTUM P is available as a special solution for customers. Just like its predecessor models, the revised QUANTUM WATER refrigerators are ideally suited for use in a wide range of industries – from data centers to the pharmaceutical industry and from car manufacturers to industrial production. Jochen Hornung is convinced that ENGIE Refrigeration will set new standards in the international refrigeration market with the QUANTUM WATER: "Our QUANTUM WATER exceeds the already very high efficiency of the previous series and can therefore reduce the CO2 footprint of our customers. Thanks to the modular modular principle, the extended range of services and the wide range of refrigerants, every customer within the QUANTUM WATER series will find the right machine for his application. ENGIE Refrigeration is thus further expanding its leading role in the international refrigeration market."
