UNIQUE ICE STORAGE SYSTEM, GEOTHERMAL & WASTE HEAT RECOVERY
When Masters Gallery Foods decided to build a new plant in Oostburg, Wisconsin they looked to Rohde Brothers, Inc.
“I enlisted Mike and his team at Rohde Brothers early in the conceptual planning stages of the project to discuss the plant refrigeration systems. Drawing from our collective years of experience, we collaborated to develop a plan taking a holistic approach to the HVAC and refrigeration systems design. We incorporated a unique ice storage system, geothermal and waste heat recovery to deliver comparable energy efficiency without the need for ammonia. The resulting systems are easier to maintain and offer a lower life-cycle cost than following the traditional approach," said Mark Wirtz, Engineering Manager, Masters Gallery Foods
The new 2-story, 187,230 square foot state-of-the-art facility included maintenance friendly and energy efficient systems that utilize standard equipment in unique ways including a unique ice storage system, geothermal and waste heat recovery.
3D modeling was used to facilitate an aggressive construction schedule, and to coordinate the complex mechanical and electrical system installation including:
