Wrist-Kooyman Ship Supply

Wrist is the largest ship chandler in the world, supplying container and marine ships, offshore platforms and dredging companies with a wide range of food and non-food products. Throught the location in Rotterdam a daily average of 30 vessels in the ARA area is being supplied.

Cooling with CO2 refrigerant

With its headquarters in Denmark, the Wrist company counts 35 locations worldwide. When the succesful Rotterdam branche was expanding, extra space was required for the storage of products, so the company moved to the former DHL-building in Rotterdam Albrandswaard.

Large environmentally friendly coldstore

For the storage of chilled and frozen food products Vink Koeltechniek built a large fridge and freezer of 371 square meters. Using CO2 as refrigerant, it has become an economic and environmentally-friendly refrigeration installation.

Creative solutions by Vink

Jeroen Bronwasser is managing director at the Wrist company in Rotterdam and explains why he is content with the services of Vink: 'It's really nice that Vink has creative thinkers who are searching for the right refrigeration solutions. We are very pleased with the additional cooling zone Vink has created for us.'

Additional cooling zone is ideal

'We have now three cooling zones: for fresh produce, chilled products and frozen products. During the day, the temperature in the first cooling zone is 0 °C, but at night the temperature drops to -15 °C. In this way we can set up everything in the evening for transport the next morning, including the frozen products. This saves us a lot of time!’

Well pleased with extra services of Vink

‘We are quite pleased with the extra service Vink provided. We gave him a key to our new building and while we were busy in the old building, he kept a close watch on all the renovation activities inside the new building. In this way he has really helped us out, making the whole moving process more convenient for us. Vink understands our business and is able to translate that into a solution that we need.’

The EU F-Gas legislation

'Vink has informed us well about the new F-Gas legislation. That is the reason why we have opted for a CO2 cooling installation so we don’t have to make major adjustments in the years to come. An installation running on CO2 is better for the environment and it is economically more attractive. Electric cooling for example is very costly. On the other hand, CO2 can be dangerous, because you cannot smell it nor see it. That is why the equipment comes with a proper CO2-alarm. This alarm is directly connected to Vink, so they are able to react immediately.’
