The environment - a key consideration at Givors Carrefour hypermarket in France


In order to anticipate the consequences of the F-Gas regulation and to reduce its carbon footprint, the hypermarket installed a DNI smart-level leak detection system, and retrofitted its R-404A refrigeration system to run on R-448A.


The Carrefour "2 vallées" hypermarket in Givors, France, opened 40 years ago and is one of the Group's three largest stores in the Lyon region. Remodelled in 2011 when Carrefour converted a number of its hypermarkets to Carrefour Planet stores to better meet its customers' needs, the hypermarket now has more than 400 employees and a surface area of 12,000 m². Its refrigerated display shelves and refrigeration units are powered by 3 central units designed to run on R-404A.
