Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSXV: SSC), is pleased to announce that Smartcool Systems Ltd., Smartcool's distributor based in the United Kingdom, has received an order for its Energy Savings Module™ (ESM™) technology from Gate Gourmet, the world's largest independent provider of airline catering and provisioning services. The initial installation is located in Gate Gourmet's UK facility at Heathrow Airport in London, England.

 

Smartcool undertook a comprehensive assessment program and upon presentation of the findings Gate Gourmet proceeded immediately. "The ESM™ supports our commitment to drive down energy costs and reduce our CO2 emissions," stated Sukh Punn, Utilities Manger UK for Gate Gourmet. "The product is excellent and the service from Smartcool has been attentive and responsive," Punn added.

The benefit generated from the installation of the ESM™ in this single location provides 620,000 kWh savings per annum in electricity
consumption which is approximately ₤50,000 per year that will be added to Gate Gourmet's cash flow. In addition, the environmental impact has resulted in a reduction of 270,000 kg of CO2, 5,670 kg of SO2 and 1,054 kg of NOx emissions per annum. This is equal to providing enough energy for 207 domestic homes or 54 acres of trees that would be required to absorb the CO2 if the installation had not been implemented. Gate Gourmet's Punn added, "We had a win/win situation, the results spoke for themselves. Strategically, it's a further demonstration of our plan to reduce our carbon footprint".

Smartcool will continue to work with Gate Gourmet in order to identify other locations that will allow them to achieve the economic savings provided by Smartcool's technology and pursue their global goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
