A prestigious international chocolate manufacturer needed additional warehouse space in Vienna to protect their delicate products during a production peak in summer. They found a warehouse, but it did not have temperature control. It was then urgent to build a reliable cooling installation.


Trane’s local team of engineers and service technicians provided a turnkey solution from planning to fulfillment. They surveyed the site and devised a complete temperature control installation including:

• 2 x 500 kW air-cooled chillers

• 8 x 150 kW air handling units

• 2 x 1000 l buffer tanks

• 4 x 200 kVA generator sets

• 600 m hoses

The quick delivery of the solution with high quality equipment and top-grade installation met customer’s power and cooling needs.


With the temporary cooling installation in place, Trane Rental Services provided the perfect storage environment for the temperature-sensitive chocolate products.

Stretching from processing to distribution through to packaging and storage, the cold chain should provide an uncompromising level of quality and safety. Trane’s low temperature systems provide cold storage solutions for the most demanding quality and safety standards of perishable products. Our Rental teams offer temporary or seasonal solutions to help customers manage production throughout busier periods, avoiding the need for permanent expansion.
