Project: DPI (Vic) Horticultural Farm Energy Audits

Client: Department of Primary Industries (Victoria)

Location: North-West Victoria

Services Provided: Energy Audits

Project Details: KMH conducted 6 energy audits on horticultural facilities across north-west Victoria. These included energy auditing of large scale cold storage facilities and identification of operational improvements relating to farm machinery and behavioural practices. Key issues identified were that R22 was being utilised as the refrigerant in the majority of the facilities and is being phased out in 2015, and other synthetic refrigerants increasing in cost significantly due to the synthetic greenhouse gas. Analysis was conducted on the potential for retrofit opportunities and replacement with natural refrigerant systems.
