Winthrop Gardens SUPA IGA is a privately-owned independent supermarket in Perth, Australia. With over 40 years of retail experience, owner Jack Keeley is seen as the original ‘Farmer Jack’ of the Western territory. Focusing on serving the local community, the business has expanded recently to also include a café next door that offers fresh, organic daily selections which are cooked on-site.
Winthrop Supa IGA had previously made attempts to streamline energy performance through regular maintenance of their existing controls while also investing in eco-friendly solar solutions. Their incumbent refrigeration service and installation provider, National Refrigeration Solutions (NRS), made further attempts to optimise these existing controls but results were found to be minimal.
However, the need for a new solution was at its most prominent when the system failed completely in June 2018.
Despite NRS ensuring existing controls were well maintained, this was ultimately a result of the equipment reaching the end of its working life. A temporary repair was implemented, but there was an urgent requirement for new controls.
