Hubbard Products has supplied a bespoke refrigeration solution for a major kitchen refurbishment project at NHS Freeman Hospital.
The project was implemented by Northshields-based Coolcheck Refrigeration, which counts a number of local NHS bodies among its customer base. Freeman Hospital is part of the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Coolcheck installed high efficiency Hubbard Packaged Scroll condensers, evaporators and personalised control panels, designed to the hospital’s specifications.
The refrigeration package specified by Hubbard Products was required to provide sufficient cooling capacity, with operating ranges from -21°C to + 8°C, for two holding freezers, two holding chills, a meat chiller, a prep area and a blast chiller.
Eric Nelson, regional sales manager for the North of England and Scotland at Hubbard Products, says the company has worked with Coolcheck Refrigeration on numerous projects and needed a reliable installation partner to deliver what was a complicated project.
“This was a complex and sophisticated design brief for any refrigeration solution, combining efficiency and high performance with reliability and value for money,” he said.
“It is a fine balancing act to deliver against all of these parameters, but with Coolcheck Refrigeration’s input and understanding of the on-site requirements it was possible to create a system using exclusively Hubbard products, even including bespoke control panels that allow total control and monitoring of the system on a 24/7 basis.”
