Fyffes – Ripening Case Study


This project was delivered by Cross to fit in with Fyffes’ operational requirement to have the site operational in 21 weeks end-to-end, replacing their existing Wakefield site.


This was the latest project delivered by Cross Ripening for Fyffes in a relationship stretching back over 30 years, and in keeping with this tradition the design principles had a clear focus on high efficiency and low energy costs. The refrigeration system used on this project included the latest Turbocor compressor units and has proven to be a reliable solution, hitting all the key elements of the design brief .
