A major food supplier in Saudi Arabia had an urgent need for cold storage at its large abattoir in the desert 100km outside Riyadh. The company is a food supplier for residential camps housing workers and needed to ensure reliable cold storage conditions in the face of increasing demand for food supplies. The company needs to keep temperatures at -15°C for storing the frozen chickens until they reach the end user.


The customer reached out to Trane Rental Services. The local Rental team promptly conducted a comprehensive site survey at the abattoir to assess the specific building and customer requirements.

Based on their expertise and deep understanding of the cold chain demands, Trane recommended two 20' cold store containers. Not only would this solution ensure rapid implementation, but it would also prove to be a cost-effective alternative to a permanent cold storage setup.
