Lying deep in Norway’s spectacular Hardangerfjord, around 50 km east of Bergen, the Homlagarden poultry farm is based in a former mill. Established in 1974, the business today raises several thousand late-breeding Red Jack chickens and black turkeys.
In 2014, the company established its own cold store. During the planning process, owners Bjørn Brynjolf Pedersen and Els Geelen were keen to find an environmentally friendly way of running it. After comparing the available options, they decided on a customised concept based on Star Cool refrigerated reefer containers.
Once the decision had been made, Bjørn and Els looked for appropriate expertise to implement it. This led them to Termo Senteret AS, Norway’s largest transport cooling workshop, who carried out the initial development, calculations and scoping. After their proposal had been approved, they then handled the smooth delivery and installation of the units themselves.
