Works Carried Out in: Year 2015

Contract Value: 500K+


Royale’s scope of works was to assist on the design and installation of large bespoke ammonia refrigeration plant which is to operate in the production of commercial ice manufacturing.   

Challenged by:

Works had to be carried out using Royale’s ammonia specialist trained refrigeration engineers, bespoke cold room walls had to be installed around the plant, with special access routes and safety measures put in place before plant could go live.

What we did:

Royale provided senior experienced engineers on the project who provided site with all information required to deliver and execute the project correctly and safely.

What Client Said:

Gavin Marks Eskimo MD has used Royale for over 25 years and this project confirmed to me as to why I continue to do repeated business with Royale as they are solution specialists.


Project: Commercial Mechanical Chiller Replacement



Works Carried Out: Year 2016

Contract Value: 205K


Royale’s scope of works, to size, design, supply and deliver a new CHW chiller on the enhanced capital allowance scheme to serve sites existing CHW fan coils.

Challenged by:

As part of our project we decommissioned the old chiller system that had an EER rating of only 2, and was beyond economical repair, we selected a new Daikin chiller with a EER rating of 3.9, sized at 500kW cooling duty, providing major improved efficiencies and far better running costs for our client.  However we were challenged by the old valve services, the commissioning valves and strainers were in poor condition, so we proposed a solution to our client to install a new low loss header replacing all these items for new.

What we did:

We designed a new CHW flow and return low loss header with all the correct new valves, trace heating and insulation in place, providing peace of mind for the life cycle of the plant, ensuring all steel CHW pipe work was installed correctly, leak checked and commissioned to manufactures standards.  We also provided fault communication to sites already existing BACnet BMS system.

What Client Said:

Very impressed with how Royale not only did they provide us with a ECA approved chiller which provided us with capital cost tax assistance as a company, though the new low loss header installed meant the plant was fully functional with no risk factor of mechanical failure over the next 15+ years.  Great service from all involved.

We have used Royale Refrigeration for around 30 years. The service, help and advice that we have received over the years has been excellent.

During that time they have replaced our refrigerated retail display units, (counters etc.) on two occasions, fitting the work into time frames that minimise shop closure. They have also installed and refurbished cold rooms, again keeping the disruption to a minimum and they installed our air conditioning.

R.A. Bevan & Co have been working with Royale for many years and they really understand what we need. We have had some very complex issues arise over that time and Royale have always found a solution for us, without their help we wouldn’t be able to display and operate as we do.

Other ‘professional’ installation companies have fitted brand new equipment for us and when it hasn’t worked we have turned to Royale for their advice and expertise. If there is ever an emergency we know that they are only a call away and they really will go that extra mile to make sure that we are taken care of, we wouldn’t ever consider looking for an alternative supplier/partner.

Two Cocks have been using Royale for years now to both install new chiller equipment as well as maintain all our equipment - from cold room chillers to freezers and fermenter chillers.

We have not got a bad word to say about them – they are always really fast to respond in emergencies and the team are really helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We can’t recommend them highly enough.
