AN INNOVATIVE
COLD STORAGE SOLUTION

Based in Switzerland for over 20 years, FAFCO has developed expertise in the design, manufacturing and installation of cold management and storage systems for the industrial and tertiary sectors.

AN UNTAPPED ENERGY SAVING POTENTIAL

Cooling is one of the major worldwide sources of energy consumption. Optimizing cold management therefore represents a corner objective for both industrial and tertiary companies.
Cold storage provides a flexible and environmentally-friendly solution able to generate significant savings on electricity bills.

A SOLUTION COMBINING ENERGY STORAGE AND TRANSFER

FAFCO’s unique expertise lies in the manufacturing and assembly of sophisticated heat exchangers which allow the development of new thermal management systems for buildings and industrial refrigeration.
In concrete terms, during the hours when electricity is cheapest (at night), an ice block is formed in the FAFCO ice bank. This ice block is progressively melted in order to meet the site’s cooling requirements at the most critical time of day. One of the most important advantages of FAFCO’s equipment lies in reducing the maximum power requested from the electricity supplier.

FAFCO systems enable remote monitoring and control, as well as electrical load management. They can be integrated into smart networks and demand response programs.

SERVING ITS CLIENTS GLOBALLY ON A LONG-TERM BASIS

Through commissioning, maintenance, upkeep and repairs, FAFCO accompanies its clients during every stage of their operation. The company intervenes all over the world. FAFCO counts among its references the Palais des Congrès in Paris, the Munich Exhibition Centre or Lisbon Airport, all equipped with its storage technology. In the industrial sector, numerous sites in the agri-food, pharmaceutical and chemical businesses use FAFCO solutions.
Based in Bienne, in the Swiss Watch Valley, FAFCO benefits from a favorable industrial and technological context promoting innovation and quality. FAFCO manufactures all of its products at its Bienne site, from where they are exported all over the world, namely via its network of partners.
