Smart Energy Management
Refrigeration as a Service
YOUR ENERGY EFFICIENT OUTSOURCED refrigeration SOLUTION
Reputable experts take over all aspects of running your refrigeration plant.
You receive cash for your existing plant. We may choose to optimize the plant, or replace it with a brand new plant if the existing plant is not reliable or efficient enough.
We pay you cash for your existing refrigeration system.
We take full responsibility to operate and maintain the system
Low Monthly Payments
You only pay for the actual cooling you consume
Move from reactive refrigeration maintenance (breakdown maintenance) to Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) with Metis Monitoring and cut cost by up to 66% per year.
Works with any Installation
In the past, only high-end refrigeration systems had any form of automated monitoring which was out of reach for most operators. Now, thanks to advances in technology, every refrigeration installation, new or existing, can now be made smart.
What Is RaaS
Refrigeration as a Service (RaaS) is a utility model where you buy refrigeration from us, paying only for the refrigeration that you use, for a fixed cost per unit of metered usage. We assume all the costs, risk and responsibility for the operation of the refrigeration plant.
There are two cases:
- We buy your existing refrigeration plant, paying you a fair price.
- We build (and pay for) a new refrigeration plant.
In both cases we own and operate the refrigeration plant, and you get to use it.
How It Works
1. We upgrade or install a new energy efficient refrigeration system
2. We operate and maintain the complete refrigeration system to ensure reliable cooling and reduce your management overheads.
3. We charge you an affordable fixed monthly fee for availability, maintenance and 15 year guarantee, as well as a variable, per-use charge for the cooling (kWhR) you use.
4. We refund you for the electricity that the refrigeration system consumes from your supplier.
Less Product Loss
24×7 monitoring and immediate response ensures the system is up.
No Management Headaches
We take full responsibility for plant repair.
100% without worries.
buy cooling from us, instead of operating your own plant:
- Reduced capex required.
- Lower Risk of product losses and breakdown costs.
- Lower operational costs.
- Enhanced reliability associated with a well engineered and operated refrigeration plant.
- Improved temperature control and hence product quality.
- You can monitor temperatures, cooling consumption and any system alarms remotely through our mobile monitoring solution.
- Your team can focus on your core business.
“we are saving power without the headache of having to look after the plant. It just make sense.”
The typical contract period is fifteen years. You have the option of ending the contract earlier by purchasing the refrigeration system from us. The purchase value at any point during the contract is included upfront in the cooling sales agreement.
Metis Monitoring is born out of 30 years of engineering experience in the commercial and industrial refrigeration sector. We’ve developed technology that allows us to adapt the cooling as a service (CaaS) business model and apply it to Commercial & Industrial refrigeration plants.

9 Vital Indicators
Now know exactly what’s happening. Follow temperature, refrigerant pressures, cycle times, cycle frequency and power consumption down to fans and compressors. View real-time data as well as historical trends. Gain the power, insight and peace of mind that SMART refrigeration delivers.
Know that your refrigerator is doing its job. See current and historical temperature trends
Make certain that refrigerator door activity is kept to a minimum and that the room never is left open.
Suction Pressure & Temperature
Track current and historical suction superheat levels to guard against flood-backs or compressor overheating.
Ambient Temperature & Humidity
Is a hot or cold day affecting things? Are things to dry or too wet? Metis Monitoring keeps taps on that too.
Liquid Pressure & Temperature
Know liquid sub-cooling levels now and in the past. Keep a sharp eye out for condenser and filter-drier health.
Compressor & Fan Power
Learn when compressor or fans are working too hard or too little. Long before expensive repairs.
It’s simple to get your Metis Monitoring system up and running. Any existing refrigeration system can be retro-fitted in less than a day with real time data being tracked instantly.
We do a complete site-survey and then deploy a comprehensive set of cloud-enabled monitoring sensors on your refrigeration system.
