A newly built refrigeration system featuring Bitzer compressors and condensers is ensuring stable temperatures at the biggest hotel in the Danish-German border region around the Flensburg Fjord.
The system features 10 walk-in cold stores and freezer rooms are distributed across the 19 floors of Hotel Alsik in Sønderborg, Denmark.
In the early Northern Hemisphere summer of 2019, Hotel Alsik opened its doors to the first guests at the waterfront in Sønderborg, Denmark. The construction of this 19-storey hotel, plus restaurants and spa area, is part of a development project involving Sønderborg’s waterfront, with the hotel supporting the town’s vision of being carbon-neutral by 2029.
Here the focus is firmly on sustainability and high quality. For this reason, Alsik is also acting as a showroom for the special clean tech expertise of the companies in the Sønderborg area. One of them is Bitzer.
Focus on quality
From the cellar to the attic space, Hotel Alsik uses materials of the highest quality. The cellar is where a large refrigeration system ensures cooling of 10 cold stores and freezer rooms across different locations. The water-cooled condensing units are an optimal matching unit program with effective and robust compressors and condensers.
The system includes 10 Bitzer Ecoline semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors with water-cooled shell and tube condensers from the Bitzer K-3 series.
Together they ensure the correct temperatures in the various kitchens, cold stores and freezer rooms of the hotel.
At the same time, the Bitzer systems also ensure a high refrigeration capacity, a high performance level, and lower energy costs. The design of the compressors allows the use of low-GWP refrigerants such as R449A and R513A.
