EQUANS France optimises the cold chain in the retail sector

Optimising the cold chain in refrigeration installations is an environmental, economic and financial challenge.

EQUANS France's expertise was chosen by LIDL to rethink its refrigeration equipment. The aim of the open-ended contract is to ensure the safety of the cold chain while reducing the carbon impact of new projects and the renewal of installations.



A state-of-the-art environmental strategy


Keen to benefit from state-of-the-art tools and innovative technologies, LIDL has chosen EQUANS France to modernise its refrigeration facilities.


Three major issues:

  •  Improve the reliability of the cold chain
  •  Reduce the carbon impact of refrigerants
  •  Controlling energy consumption

These are major challenges for this major player in European food distribution, involving both existing shops and new infrastructures. The Fenouillet shop is already reaping the benefits of this new contract.



Providing Lidl with tailor-made, sustainable and innovative solutions is our priority today


Because our services and our past successes with this equipment are a guarantee of quality, we know that every detail is important, and we attach great importance to each of the refrigeration installations: cold rooms, positive cold rooms, negative frozen cold rooms and air coolers.


In order to best meet the customer's needs, we support Lidl in the implementation of:

  •  a solution using the natural fluid "propane" with a GWP of 3
  •  closed sales refrigeration units with glass doors 
  •  optimised regulation according to needs and the outside temperature 
  •  strict compliance with food safety and personal safety

Sustainable investments with many benefits.
