Cold Stores: Upgrading Hospital’s Food Storage | ICS Cool Energy Case Study

Practically any raw material or finished food and beverage product requires temperature-controlled storage. Maintaining optimal temperature with minimal fluctuation can preserve or increase the shelf life of food, dairy, fruits and vegetables, fish, meat, seafood and more. The demand for fewer chemical preservatives also increases dependence on refrigeration storage.

ICS Cool Energy Cold Stores, in other words, temperature-controlled containers, originally designed for global – often in high ambient temperatures – marine transport of temperature-sensitive perishables can be used for planned and unplanned cold storage requirements.


A hospital in East England was in need of upgrading its food storage units, as their two 15-year-old containers were reaching the end of their life, and the repairs were too expensive to be cost-effective. The hospital used these remote cold storage units to store food in preparation for cooking to deliver to patients around the hospital.


The hospital approached ICS Cool Energy, an international market leader specialising in complete temperature control solutions for the manufacturing process and facilities applications, recommended by their F&M company, familiar with the company’s expertise from other projects within the prison service. ICS Cool Energy provided the hospital with two new Cold Store 20 units prepared for food storage. The delivery and installation in the desired location were smooth. The units were set to maintain the temperature of -20°C, commissioned and left fully operational by an ICS Cool Energy engineer.


The Cold Stores deliver high cooling capacity in combination with precise temperature control (possible from fresh to deep frozen) even in the most severe applications with high ambient temperatures, frequent door openings and long running hours.
The new ICS Cool Energy Cold Store units ensure a more efficient and cost-effective solution for the hospital’s food storage needs, allowing it to continue delivering fresh food to its patients without disruptions or delays.
