Hoshizaki’s latest generation 5 technology has scooped its 12th award as the Gram SuperiorPlus K72G took home first place in Footprint Awards’ foodservice energy efficiency category.
The manufacturer reports it took an innovative approach in the development of this refrigeration range, resulting in significant energy reduction and lower annual energy bills for operators.
Furthermore, the hydrocarbon refrigerants present (along with the majority of Hoshizaki’s portfolio)are claimed to have a zero Ozone Depletion Potential and a Global Warming Potential of three, compared to the more damaging hydrofluorocarbons more commonly used in many refrigeration appliances.
The award is now in its 7th year and rewards those that have made significant reductions in energy consumption as a result of demonstrated initiatives, as well as innovations in design that have resulted in a reduction of energy consumption.
The expert judging panel is said to have unanimously agreed that the SuperiorPlus K72G met all the category criteria.
Steve Loughton, Hoshizaki UK director of UK and Ireland, commented: “This award has proven that our reputation for highly energy efficient and sustainable products is well founded. Our generation 5 technology is thus far unrivalled, with the SuperiorPlus K72G being positively received. We will continue to strive to lead the market and drive forward the sector, to ensure the market offers customers the most innovative technology available.”
