The mobile solutions that Termodizayn, an Istanbul-based company, has created come in a variety of models. Mobile stores, mobile cold storages, mobile water chiller, and even mobile blast freezers are some of the company’s mobile products. They are used by supermarkets, food chains, ice-cream companies, food processing facilities, companies trading plants and flowers, hospitals, hotels, and farms. The equipment is popular both because it comes ready-to-use and so does not need any complicated assembly or installation, and because it is mobile.
Cold chain integrity vital for quality and safety
During all the steps a refrigerated food product makes during the trip from the production site to the consumer’s refrigerator, it is necessary that the integrity of the cold chain is not compromised, if the food is to maintain its quality and safety. Temperature and moisture values must be maintained within a certain range. Mobile refrigeration allows the product to be kept within these parameters and protects it from the external environment, while the product is transported from one location to another.
Termodizayn’s solutions are available in a wide range of dimensions, capacities, and temperature options. Refrigerated products need to be kept at between minus 4 and plus 4 degrees, while for frozen products the range is minus 18 to minus 23 degrees. There are many advantages to freezing seafood. A highly perishable product when fresh, the shelf life of seafood can be extended many times over when it is frozen. This makes the logistics of storing and transporting it much easier, enabling it to be transported long distances without impairing its quality. One of the biggest advantages of freezing, however, is that seafood, which is frozen immediately on board the vessel or after being harvested at a fish farm, retains its freshness. Correctly frozen and correctly defrosted this fish is in many instances better than “fresh” fish from a retail outlet.
Interest in frozen foods is growing internationally. Studies show that the market for frozen foods including frozen fish is expected to reach almost USD300bn in 2019 from around USD225bn in 2012. Some parts of the sector such as ready meals will grow faster than others as busy lifestyles, concerns about food safety, and the demand for convenience increase. Growth in the frozen food sector will also partly be driven by increased prosperity in countries that are industrializing, which will lead to households investing in freezers and refrigerators.

Portable refrigerating and freezing equipment
Among the solutions Termodizayn offers are container-type portable cold store or frozen storage. The walls and ceiling of the containers are insulated with sandwich panels with polyurethane filling. Panel thickness is 80-100 mm for cold stores, and 120-150 mm for freezers. Being mobile the containers can easily and conveniently be deployed wherever they are needed. In contrast fixed-panel cold stores are expensive to assemble and dismantle and can also get damaged in the process. The container-type cold stores are completely produced in the factory preventing any damage to the panels. They comply with international transportation standards, and the compression units fit within the container dimensions. The containers can also be built to special sizes, for example to fit into a standard container, to reduce the costs of shipping them. Three models of the containers are available for refrigerated storage, frozen storage, and for quick freezing.
