Henningsen Cold Storage Co. Invests in their Engineers to Improve Energy Performance

CRES certified Henningsen engineers implement energy upgrades for big pay back.

Back to Case Studies

Receiving, storing, and shipping out over a million pounds of frozen food every day with 100% accuracy is no simple task. However, in 2014 Henningsen Cold Storage Co. (Henningsen) built a state-of-the-art refrigerated warehouse in Salem, Oregon to do just that.

Henningsen is one of the largest public refrigerated warehousing companies in the U.S. They deliver award-winning refrigerated logistics through a national warehouse network totaling more than 60 million cubic feet of multi-temperature controlled storage (ranging from -20°F to +70°F). Henningsen’s Salem facility (S1) boasts more than 7.5 million cubic feet of -5°F freezer storage, more than 0.5 million cubic feet
of refrigerated dock, and 28 unload/loading spots. The facility is the primary production support and distribution point for a local food processor.

This state-of-the-art facility was built utilizing low-charge and high-efficiency components and design practices. However, even in this already-extremely energy efficient facility, the CRES certified Henningsen engineering team has been able to identify several more energy saving activities. These additional energy activities were championed by the site’s engineering team: Jenson Storm, Jason Propes, and Chris Hutchinson - all of whom are CRES certified. They completed seven activities at the site resulting in 395,583 kWh of annual energy savings, which equates to approximately $25,000 per year in energy cost savings.
