Industrial and commercial cooling systems
Our vast expertise in delivering a variety of large-scale industrial and commercial cooling solutions in the Australia Pacific region has been proven numerous times, in completing such projects as:
- Industrial cooling of large construction sites, from tunnel construction to ship-building
- Event cooling, such as touring exhibitions, or battling high humidity and high temperatures using industrial air conditioners and chillers
- Temperature control for outdoor events, such as skating rinks in Australia and New Zealand, using portable industrial chillers
- Power supply and industrial chiller hire for food and beverage manufacturers, like keeping the plant in operation in remote Papua New Guinea.
Mine cooling systems
Mine cooling is a challenging task, both due to the scale and remoteness of the projects. Aggreko implemented numerous mine cooling and ventilation projects all over Australia and demonstrated its ability to deliver highly complex cooling solutions in the industry.

Cooling systems FAQ
How to choose a cooling system?
When selecting a cooling system, several factors should be considered to ensure optimal performance and efficiency. Here are some key considerations:
- Cooling requirements: Determine the specific cooling needs of the space or equipment you intend to cool. Consider factors such as the size of the area, heat load, and desired temperature range.
- Type of cooling system: Evaluate different types of cooling systems available, such as air conditioning units, evaporative coolers, heat pumps, or chilled water systems. Choose the type that best suits your requirements and budget.
- Energy efficiency: Look for cooling systems with high energy efficiency ratings to minimize operating costs and environmental impact. Energy-efficient models often have features like variable speed compressors, programmable thermostats, and high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings.
- Installation and maintenance: Consider the ease of installation and maintenance requirements of the cooling system. Choose a system that can be installed with minimal disruption and has accessible components for routine maintenance tasks.
- Cost: Compare the initial cost, installation expenses, and long-term operating costs of different cooling systems. While cheaper options may have lower upfront costs, they could end up being more expensive to operate over time due to higher energy consumption or maintenance costs.
- Space constraints: Evaluate the available space for installing the cooling system. Some systems, such as split air conditioners or ductless mini-split systems, require less space compared to central air conditioning systems or chillers.
- Noise level: Consider the noise level produced by the cooling system, especially if it will be installed in a residential or noise-sensitive environment. Choose a system with low noise emissions to ensure comfort and minimize disturbances.
- Environmental impact: Assess the environmental impact of the cooling system, including factors such as refrigerant type, ozone depletion potential (ODP), and global warming potential (GWP). Opt for systems that use environmentally friendly refrigerants and have minimal greenhouse gas emissions.
- Reliability and durability: Research the reliability and durability of different cooling system brands and models. Read customer reviews, consult with experts, and consider warranty coverage to ensure you select a system that will provide reliable performance for years to come.
- Integration with existing Infrastructure: If you're replacing an existing cooling system or integrating it with other HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) components, ensure compatibility and consider any necessary modifications or upgrades to existing infrastructure.
By carefully considering these factors, you can choose a cooling system that meets your specific requirements while providing efficient and reliable performance.
What kind of maintenance and upkeep is required for cooling systems?
For maintenance of the industrial cooling system, we recommend:
- Cleaning and replacing filters.
- Checking and cleaning evaporator and condenser coils.
- Checking and adjusting refrigerant levels.
- Inspecting and cleaning ductwork.
- Lubricating motors and bearings.
- Checking thermostat calibration to ensure that the system is maintaining the desired temperature.
- Testing electrical components.
When renting from Aggreko, our service technicians ensure the system is performing at its best with regular checkups.
Do you provide installation and maintenance services for rented cooling systems?
Aggreko provides complete cooling systems, which normally include not only rental equipment, but also installation, remote monitoring and maintenance services, so that our customers can concentrate on their core business. In addition, we can provide complementary power and engineering services.
