Cloverleaf Cold Storage has invested $8 million in a green energy initiative at a recently-purchased Sumter, S.C., warehouse.

The project deploys several different technologies that will dramatically reduce the facility’s energy consumption, according to the company. A computerized control process will monitor the newly reconfigured and enhanced ammonia refrigeration plant. Energy consumption is monitored in real time, providing both conservation and increased product protection. The exterior walls of the plant were replaced with high RF rated panels, increasing the insulating capabilities.


In addition to the green initiatives implemented in the renovation, the racking system has been reconfigured to increase the storage capacity of the warehouse by 40%.
