Adelaide-based Coopers Brewery has awarded a $3.5 million contract to local refrigeration specialist Cold Logic to supply and install refrigeration plant at its future Regency Park malting plant. At $63 million, the malting plant is the largest item of capital expenditure in Coopers’ history, and is due to open late in 2017.

The order comprises three new compressor packages, which will be designed and assembled at Cold Logic’s Port Adelaide factory. These will form part of a water chilling system that will circulate 5ML of water daily to regulate the temperature at the plant.

Each of the high-efficiency screw compressors will be driven by a 300kW motor and weigh in at 3t. Between them, the three units will create 3750kW(r) of cooling to chill the water to 6℃ while using ammonia as the refrigerant to minimise environmental impact.

According to Cold Logic Partner, Eddie Lane, the new project is the latest in a long-term relationship between the two companies. He adds: “Typically, refrigeration makes up 40 to 60% of a brewery’s energy use. We are passionate about helping Coopers to overcome higher energy costs and improve their efficiencies.”

The new plant is designed to produce around 54kt of malt per year, and around two-thirds of this will be available for export.

“The new plant will guarantee the long-term supply of high-quality malt for our future growth,” says Coopers Managing Director, Dr Tim Cooper.
