When a client based at Heathrow Airport needed extra cold storage space after landing a new contract, TITAN’s modular Arctic SuperStore was the ideal solution. 

THE CHALLENGE

Heathrow is one of the world’s busiest hubs when it comes to international travel. When one client based there secured a new contract that required masses of cold storage space, they needed someone to come in quickly with a solution. Our modular Artic SuperStore was the answer.

TITAN’s client-centric approach puts us in a great place to tailor each build to meet unique requirements. Customisation encompasses aspects such as size, temperature zones, door types, and other specific additions to ensure an ideal fit.

In this case, the client at Heathrow Airport required a substantial solution: 16 x 40ft containers, collectively providing a floor area of over 475 m2. There is almost no limit to the size of the installation TITAN can provide. Suitable for inside, outside or connected to buildings, our largest installation to date is almost 800 m2.

THE SOLUTION

The client’s design was segmented into five sections to accommodate varying temperature needs. Three large freezer zones at -20? were designated for storing excess food produce, while two airlock zones at 3? facilitated the seamless transfer of stock into a dispatch zone for onward delivery to the main building.

TITAN recommended installing eight doors to have several accesses to all zones and to provide health and safety peace of mind.

The ArcticStore team’s strategic recommendation was to utilise 10 refrigeration machines to power the 16 bays, offering energy savings of approximately 50% compared to installing a machine for each bay. This setup also provided redundancy in case of an unexpected unit malfunction.

Additionally, the implementation of SmartArctic technology allowed for remote monitoring and efficient management of refrigeration units, enhancing operational oversight and ensuring a seamless auditing process. The system was further configured to deliver real-time alarm notifications to key stakeholders, assuring peace of mind and proactive issue resolution.

THE DELIVERY

The installation process was executed efficiently over a span of 10 days – an impressive achievement given the live operational environment we were working in. TITAN’s ArcticStore team exhibited their expertise by meticulously orchestrating the delivery of the 16 containers and ensuring the yard grounds were appropriately levelled for a seamless installation. The dedication to quality standards was evident at every stage of the production process, as certified quality control personnel oversaw and validated each step, upholding TITAN’s commitment to the highest quality in all of our solutions.

THE RESULTS

Our client now has a fully functioning cold storage warehouse that meets their precise needs and enables them to fulfil the demands of the new contract – and on flexible terms, too, as all of our ArcticStore solutions are rentable.

The implementation of innovative technologies and an unwavering dedication to quality assurance underscore our position as a reliable partner in providing cutting-edge storage solutions for industries in every sector, from food and beverages to agriculture and pharma.
