Case Study: Rental Chiller Systems Gives Winemaker reason to Celebrate

Temporary Chiller System Gives Winemaker Something to Celebrate

The Challenge to the Customer

When a Sonoma-area maker of sparkling wine planned an upgrade to its entire chiller system and utility service, they didn’t realize that the project couldn’t be completed in time for crush season.

In order to stay on their harvest and crush schedule, they needed a temporary chiller solution they could count on.

Aggreko's Solution

Aggreko was engaged to supply power to the company’s chiller system and two electrical panels. The Aggreko solution included a chiller rental with pumps, a surge tank with generator rental, and multiple cable runs

The chiller package was used to supply a 35°F glycol solution at 500 gpm for the fermentation tank jacket cooling system. The generator was used to power the Aggreko system and the customer’s entire production process, including compressors, pumps and machinery.

The Benefit to the Customer

During the winemaker’s system outage, Aggreko provided power and cooling throughout their harvest season – ensuring  another good year for their sparkling wine production.
