The Customer

Bernard Corrigan Ltd are a wholesale supplier of fish, poultry and game to the hotel and restaurant business  in Glasgow city centre and outlying areas.

Bernard Corrigan source fish from the Glasgow Fish Market and distribute it from their Howard St depot.

Bernard Corrigan Ltd was founded in 1949. The company originally traded  alongside the old Glasgow Fish Market on the banks of the River Clyde. But due to fast and efficient service and rapidly achieving a reputation for the freshness of produce at the keenest prices, the operation expanded throughout the years, moving premises several times, until the present day city centre site was acquired in 1982.

Key Project

ACE installed a new 4m x 3m chill room for Corrigan’s during May 2015. The existing coldrooms were installed by ACE nearly 40 years ago and are still working and in use today.

Energy Efficiency

For some organisations, refrigeration costs can represent more than 50 % of their energy bill, and 20 % of that can be wastage.  A modern and energy-efficient refrigeration system will help save you money; we know where energy savings can be made and how to get cost-effective and efficient systems up and running in your business. Our in-house design team also offer indemnified designs with a focus on energy savings of up to 25% over traditional applications, incorporating temperature monitoring systems.

Revised F-Gas Regulations

Revised F-Gas regulations came into effect on 1st January 2015. The central element of these revised regulations is part of the phase down of HFC Refrigerants with a GWP greater than 2500, with a complete ban on new equipment using these refrigerants effective from 2020 onwards. However, recycled and reclaimed HFCs with greater than 2,500 GWP will still be allowed for servicing existing plants until 2030.

The previous classification confirming leak detection quantity per year based on refrigerant charge thresholds have now been replaced by a system based instead on carbon emissions per year. All systems with a CO2 equivalent greater than 500 tonnes must have a fixed leak detection system installed.  But for any system with fixed leak detection installed, the quantity of leak tests required is reduced by 50%.

How these changes affect you depends on what refrigerants your current plant operates with, and how much you are using; different refrigerants have differing thresholds; all based on the carbon emissions.
