Experience matters

Engineering is a diverse and broad discipline.  Some engineering firms focus on civil engineering, while others focus on mechanical engineering, or chemical engineering. While each of these is a specialized skill, some projects require a higher level of specialization and expertise.  This makes an engineering firm’s experience incredibly important in determining their ability to undertake a project in a way that guarantees their achievement of client goals.

At Polar Engineering, our focus into industrial refrigeration, heat pumps and energy recovery set us apart.

Engineered over 20 large energy recovery systems.
Worked on 5 different continents
Energy Saving Dashboards

Polar Engineering has developed an energy recovery analysis dashboard specifically designed for facilities who want to display their energy savings.

This dashboard will take information from the energy recovery refrigeration system controls system, and calculate both the instantaneous and to-date energy savings using Polar’s algorithms.
