"ZERO 1" was already the third wholesale market of METRO Cash & Carry Austria GmbH, which the Viessmann Refrigeration Solutions Division has equipped with state-of-the-art refrigeration technology.
The internationally acclaimed flagship project "ZERO 1" was opened in October 2017 in the industrial park St. Pölten. The Viessmann specialists from kke took over the organization and installation of the entire refrigeration technology in the METRO market. A total of 90 Viessmann products ensure perfect cooling in St. Pölten. They score with their energy efficiency and, thanks to their stylish design, also set visual accents for the feel-good atmosphere in the market.
Particularly sustainable: All of Viessmann's refrigeration equipment uses only the natural refrigerant R744 (CO2). In addition, the waste heat from the refrigeration system feeds underfloor heating in the base plate of the market and thus heats the store. Also for the treatment of hot water, the waste heat is used.
Thanks to the 6,000 m2 photovoltaic system on the roof, the METRO market in St. Pölten is not only energy self-sufficient, but also produces more energy than it consumes over the year - making it a plus-energy wholesale market. The surplus of solar power flows into the e-filling stations in the parking lot of the branch.
