Special features Yet again, BREMER is awarded a contract by DIBAG for a deep-freeze storage facility with an operating temperature of -28°. One special challenge for the planning and construction of the facility is to create the most homogeneous connections possible between the layers of thermal insulation in roof, walls and floor and to realise exterior vapour barriers as an all-round, absolutely vapour-proof skin.
Description of the facility The structure of the deep-freeze storage facility consists of BREMER precast reinforced concrete elements. For maximum flexibility, the hall is clear-spanned with 40 metre reinforced concrete girders. The roof is of trapezoidal sheeting with PUR insulation and a PVC membrane. The facade consists of metal sandwich panels with a PUR core. The reinforced concrete floor slab floats on a layer of polystyrene insulation with an underlying frost heave prevention system. The hall is fitted with back-to-back and mobile racks. Deliveries arrive through 7 thermally insulated dock shelters. These are fitted with 2 gates and act as locks to keep the cold chain intact.
