Danfoss Secures a Major Design Win for a Landmark CO₂ Refrigeration Project in China
Dalian, China July 25, 2013. The global climate & energy leading company Danfoss is pleased to report that its award winning valve station for industrial refrigeration, called the ICF Flexline™, recently achieved a major milestone in China. The Flexline™ family of valves were extensively applied in a landmark CO2
refrigeration project at the scallop & sea cucumber processing centre of the Dalian Zhangzi Island Fishery Group.
The Zhangzi Island is located in the north end of the Yellow Sea, 56 nautical miles from the continent and free from pollution. The natural environment of the island is well suited for aquaculture, which combined with bottom-breeding technology, yields high quality seafood. Zhangzi Island's products are widely recognized as organic, green and pollution-free. Every year, Dalian Zhangzi Island distributes approximately 100 million seeds into the sea. At the bottom of the cultivation area there are so many marine creatures, that it is often referred to as a "seabed bank". Three main products, Yezo scallops, sea cucumber and abalone, all grow very well in this type of environment.
Overlooking the Zhangzi Island, a large silver building will certainly grab your attention. This building, that many say resembles a large ship, is the newly constructed seafood processing centre of Dalian Zhangzi Island group. This building combines seafood processing and cold storage. After comprehensively considering safety, the environment, and efficiency, the Zhangzi Island group decided to use CO2
as the refrigerant for this project. Danfoss was subsequently selected as the valve supplier due to our industry leading CO2
technology, vast experience with CO2
and our high-quality products.
