Reftrade UK has over 25 years of experience supplying DNV 2.7-1 / EN 12079 certified refrigeration and temperature controlled units for the global offshore energy sector.

The transportation of food has been a necessary component of offshore operations since the commencement of oilfield exploration and production. Along with many other technological advancements in the energy sector, refrigeration technology has evolved and the market now has access to state-of-the-art refrigeration containers and temperature controlled units for all food transportation needs.

There is often the requirement for bespoke units offshore due to the varying space constraints on board the platforms. Reftrade UK can advise, manufacture, supply and deliver a wide specification of custom-built, bespoke units to suit client requirements in a range of different temperatures and sizes.

Reftrade UK is the only rental supplier of 10ft and 20ft rated explosion proof containers in the UK. Built for use in hazardous areas, the containers, provide cold or freezer storage in a 20oC to +5oC temperature range and the zoned 1 & 2 units are capable of providing cold or freezer storage, in a -25°C to +25 °C temperature range.

At Reftrade UK we are constantly developing our product offering in line with customer requirements. We have introduced GPS tracking and monitoring systems on all Reftrade UK containers. This innovative feature allows our clients to track a container’s journey from point of collection and fill location and then once in situ on the platform, whilst continuously monitoring the temperature of the goods inside.
