WEG collaborates with Mafresa to make cold production energy savings

18 December 2018

Mafresa, one of the largest producers of Iberian pork products in Extremadura (Spain), has placed its trust in the efficient WEG W22 Magnet IE4 and CFW11 variable speed drive solutions to expand its refrigeration facilities. The annual savings in cold production energy costs for the Iberian pork producer are estimated at around €27,000.

WEG has provided a highly efficient solution for operation of its new refrigeration unit at the Mafresa facilities. The Iberian pork producer located in Fregenal de la Sierra, Badajoz, is using the new cold stores for Iberian pork sausages, shoulders and ham. INITUM EFJ ASESORES, a WEG distributor in Extremadura, recommended that Mafresa refrigeration installer, Jacinto Redondo S.L., use five W22 Magnet IE4 electric motors for the compressors which are utilised in the company’s cold production facilities.

“For companies that use industrial refrigeration, it’s crucial that cold production equipment works at maximum efficiency, or rather with a fully optimised COP (Coefficient of Performance). In the food industry, refrigeration can represent more than 80 percent of a company’s total electricity usage. As such, the aim is to provide a solution which meets all the refrigeration requirements of all departments, but with the lowest possible kWh consumption,” explains Francisco Javier Álvarez, Industrial Engineer and Co-founder of INITUM EFJ ASESORES.
