A large institution in Bucharest was seeking a short-term cold store unit as a back-up during retrofit on its existing walk-in refrigeration room. Used for frozen food storage, the cold store serves the kitchen of a large office canteen. A secure and reliable solution was needed to ensure there would be no disruption to canteen operations.


The local Trane Rental Services team worked closely with the customer to determine their exact needs – both at a technical level and in terms of easy operation for the staff who would be using the cold store.

The organisation required adherence to very strict international standards and regulations. Requirements and conditions also included:
• Specific temperatures
• Limited space on site
• Limited access
• Available power sources and
• Back-up power facilities.

Following discussions and site visit, the Rental team recommended a 20ft ISO Trane C-STORE G refrigeration container to provide low temperatures of -30°C.

The C-Store G unit is a highly sustainable, energy-efficient frozen storage solution using low GWP refrigerants and featuring an advanced temperature management control system.


The 24 cubic metre C-Store G unit is the perfect choice for demanding applications in a wide temperature range from -30°C to +30°C setpoint, reachable at any ambient conditions up to +50°C. Trane Rental Romania’s Bucharest customer is very satisfied with the team’s collaborative approach and robust solution. The installation was carried out in record time. Less than two hours after Trane Rental’s arrival on site, the catering staff had been fully trained on how to use the unit and the required frozen temperature of -30°C was reached.

Trane Rental Services offers a wide range of energy-efficient cold storage solutions with extensive applications in short-term to long-term storage, warehousing and testing. Solutions can be adapted to perfectly meet customer needs with options including telematics, remote monitoring and controlled atmosphere. Low to ultra-low temperature solutions range from -70°C to +40°C and are available in ISO containers sizes 10', 20' and 40'. The units, which allow real-time remote monitoring, are very easy to use and feature the most advanced controller in the industry.
