Prima Bakeries acquired portable cold store from Blue Cube

Platon Tvardovski

Prima Bakeries has been baking delicious Cornish Pasties, bread, cake, confectionery and savoury products in the heart of Cornwall for over thirty years.

The bakery, based at Redruth in the heart of Cornwall took delivery of the cold store in June following a requirement for additional frozen capacity. Using a portable cold store meant capacity could be increased quickly and within budget.

It was a challenging site due to ground levels so Blue Cube offered a full package deal. This included provision for groundwork’s and levelling as part of the sale.

To ensure the unit was future proofed, Blue Cube went one step further and replaced the refrigerant from R404A to R452A. R452A has a GWP of 2140 – a little over half that of R404A.

Blue Cube’s portable cold stores are available in 14, 22, 31 and 37 pallet capacities. The units have an operating temperature range from -26°C to +26°C. This permits frozen, chilled and ambient storage applications. They can be ground based or elevated to a loading dock.

The latest generation refrigeration systems ensure greater efficiencies and lower operating costs for customers. Plus LED lighting provides up to 300 lux of light meeting the standard required for loading and unloading.

Each portable cold store is fitted with impact bars, lockable doors and locking door bars.  Emergency lighting, externally mounted audible and visible man trap and temperature alarms provide all the necessary safety features.

In addition, side doors, ramps, dock level platforms and racking are available as optional features. The units can be linked to either a building or each other in order to help improve workflow.
