GEHE's refrigeration technology specialist, Schwerte-based Schrezenmaier Kältetechnik GmbH, does not make any compromises with its orders. That's why it opted for Viessmann as project partner to meet the special structural requirements for the overhanging cold rooms. "We'd already successfully implemented the Landshut project in cooperation with Viessmann and that's why we were sure that it'd work in Nuremberg too," states the project manager responsible, qualified engineer Dominik Schrezenmaier.
The cold rooms were fully assembled at Viessmann, so that the Schrezenmaier Kältetechnik team could simply integrate the pre-assembled cold rooms into the refrigeration circuit.
The high-end TectoCell Standard Plus cold rooms by Viessmann are ideally suited for use in the pharmaceuticals sector as they are heavily thermally insulated and, consequently, highly energy efficient. The SmartProtec antimicrobial powder coating prevents hygiene risks as does the seamless underlapping stainless steel floor. An extremely heavy-duty variant was chosen for the GEHE cold rooms in Nuremberg. Able to withstand a load up to 4,000 Newton, they also feature anti-slip properties up to class R11.
The concept goes even further. Thanks to the two new Viessmann cold rooms measuring 11 x 4.6 metres, GEHE managed to expand its capacity for refrigerated pharmaceuticals dramatically.
