HOUSTON, March 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Viking Cold Solutions has completed another energy efficiency installation, helping Bermuda's largest food distributor, Butterfield & Vallis, reduce refrigeration storage costs by 40 percent.
Viking Cold's thermal energy storage system uses phase change material that absorbs heat as it melts, allowing chillers to run less frequently and still keep the Butterfield & Vallis warehouse within a few degrees of -18° Celsius. The system is among 20 built and installed by Viking in cold storage warehouses in Bermuda, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, California, New Mexico and Texas.
