SUNNYSPOT Packhouse

Sunnyspot Avocado Packhouse Project

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ABSOLUTE COOL

COMMISSIONING WITH EASE: BITZER AUSTRALIA & GREEN POINT

Sunnyspot Packhouse is located a short drive outside Esk in country Queensland, on top of the Great Dividing Range. Daryl Boardman and his family own and operate an avocado farm, and pack avocados for other producers in the local area at the  Sunnyspot facility.

David Capp at Absolute Cool worked with BITZER’s Glen Stubberfi eld on this cold room upgrade. The project included installation and commissioning of an ECOSTAR and BUFFALO TRIDENT evaporator.

Glen called on the assistance of BITZER Green Point service agent David West to assist with the ECOSTAR commissioning. When David Capp was asked to upgrade the farms pull down rooms, BITZER was fi rst to come to mind. Quality, Reliability and many years of service were important.

When the prospect of high system efficiency was requested of BITZER, we offered the new ECOSTAR Unit running on R134a, complete with VSD and BBM evaporator fitted with EVD-ice electronic superheat control.

This is a very sweet combination with BITZER conservatively saying that energy savings were expected to be 25% plus. In fact, 35% plus was believed to be closer to the correct number.

After installation, BITZER offered some assistance to apply for a little-known Government grant that offered a reduction in the finance rate for high
efficiency installs. Happy client and happy contactor: where to next?
