Project Profiles

Blenner’s Transport Depot, Cairns

Jackson & Jackson Refrigeration Pty Ltd were commissioned to supply and install the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning requirements for Blenner’s Transport, Cairns Depot.  This project was awarded on a design and construct basis, where all of the required engineering was carried out in house by the experienced and professional engineering team.

This depot features the following capacities:

  • 300 Pallet Chiller at +1°C Storage Space – 2 rooms
  • 300 Pallet Freezer at -20°C Storage Space – 2 rooms
  • A large Ante-Room at +8°C
  • A Dry Store with Refrigerated Dehydration
  • Air Conditioned Offices

The Refrigeration System selected for this project features CO² refrigeration for the low temperature freezer rooms.  CO² is a natural refrigerant with many environmental benefits, including the following:

  • No Greenhouse Gas Penalty
  • No Ozone Depleting Penalty
  • Approximate Energy Savings of 21% for the Refrigeration Plant

This project was, to our knowledge, the first CO² refrigeration plant commissioned in North Queensland.  The refrigeration plant has provided the operators with trouble-free operation since the plant was commissioned in the second quarter of 2008.

The project is a milestone for Jackson & Jackson Refrigeration Pty Ltd as the leading commercial refrigeration company in Far North Queensland.

Other, larger projects employ the same technology are currently in the planning and engineering phase and installation began late in 2009.
