Gravity Drainage for Tesco
The new Tesco Kildare Town store was officially opened today, Monday 5th of December, creating over 130 new jobs. CapCon Engineering were commissioned to install both a gravity drainage and siphonic rainwater system at the site.
Local suppliers to the store include Kildare Chilling, Kildare Town; Paul Brophy, Naas; Brady Family, Naas and Green Isle, Naas. Tesco is one of the biggest supporters of the Irish food and drink industry, with €655 million worth of exports of Irish food into the Tesco Group annually.
As part of Tesco’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint, the Tesco Kildare Town store features a number of innovative, environmentally-friendly technologies. These include a timber frame built from sustainable sources instead of steel, refrigeration which uses CO2 to cool the freezers and fridges rather than traditional refrigerant gases, and a CHP plant that heats the store and generates electricity very efficiently.
