"Free Cooling" solution installed at manufacturing facility.

ICS Cool Energy restored normality at a major manufacturing plant recently after a fire broke out at a neighbouring facility in Scotland, providing a temporary solution and Free Cooling technology which helped re-establish production.

The Scottish producer has a 100-year history of designing and manufacturing specialised equipment for plumbing professionals and industry experts. It is large scale work and the firm uses a wide variety of equipment to support its processes. Unfortunately the fire destroyed much of the equipment, causing critical damage and halting production on site.

ICS Cool Energy designed and implemented a custom-made plan and a turnkey solution for its redevelopment which included both temporary rental equipment and improved environmentally beneficial Free Cooling technology.

Kevin Whyte, Director at ICS Cool Energy explains: “We have been working with this company since 2002, so we knew the equipment they had and our engineers were able to get a quick turnaround on the project. Our engineers supplied a temporary chiller and air blast unit suited to their requirements on short-term hire, allowing for production to recommence as soon as possible.”

“We then installed a new chiller and Free Cooling coil to cool the moulding machinery and added a 480kW capacity adiabatic cooler unit to provide reliable, economical temperature control to its hydraulic circuits. The Free Cooling method ensures that the facilities were not only back in operation, but also utilised the latest technology in refrigeration, remaining energy efficient, sustainable and ‘green’.”

Free Cooling technology is a modern and energy efficient way of reducing operation costs and overheads. To find out more about the technology, or any of the temperature control products or services that ICS Cool Energy offers, visit or call 0800 774 7420.
