ELKHART, Ind. /Send2Press Newswire/ — Leading the way in reducing energy consumption is in the works for the new 49,000-sqaure-foot LEED Platinum Certified Hannaford Supermarket in Augusta, Maine and REMIS AMERICA was sure to be a part of it. REMIS AMERICA installed 32 feet of Remiglas Ecosafe sliding glass covers on freezer bunker display cases which can reduce energy consumption up to a remarkable 55 percent over traditional open frozen food cases. With these potential energy savings, retail grocery stores now recognize the opportunity to significantly lower operating costs, while reducing their carbon footprint.
Eco-friendly energy savings are only part of the story. Enclosed cases maintain a more comfortable store temperature, while providing a barrier to protect food freshness in the event of a power outage. Also, insulated glass covers maintain product integrity by keeping temperatures constant, for greater consumer satisfaction. Goods remain uniformly frozen in the refrigerated display cabinet and optimally visible.
The Maine-based Hannaford Supermarkets is the first supermarket chain in the world to achieve LEED Platinum Certification. The Platinum designation is the highest rating a company can strive to obtain from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental design (LEED). Hannaford’s first-in-the-world environmental designed Augusta location opened on July 25, 2009. They plan on using the store as a research laboratory to test new innovations that decrease energy usage, waste and water consumption, while improving air quality, storm-water management, and the use of sustainable materials.
The REMIS AMERICA, Remiglas Ecosafe covers have been engineered to custom fit individual case specifications. These proven systems are in use in over ten thousand retail stores throughout Europe, via the sister company, REMIS GmbH of Cologne, Germany.
REMIS AMERICA, headquartered in Elkhart, Indiana, is the result of a joint venture between, DEHCO, Inc., Elkhart, Indiana, and REMIS GmbH of Cologne, Germany.
Hannaford currently operates 169 supermarkets in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York and Vermont under the name Hannaford Food and Drug or Hannaford Supermarket and Pharmacy. Hannaford is owned by Belgium-based Delhaize Group, a global company that is one of the world’s largest food retailers.
