Visitors will hear the PROGreen Solutions story; how the team set goals and made history with the FIRST CO2 Chiller system at a dairy farm in the United States! See the transformation that occurred at Bill Jongsma’s Farm (with 3000 animals), and how they are instant-cooling their milk to 37 F and utilizing the onboard PROHeat20 Heat Recovery to generate 185 F water and provide 100% of the needed hot water.

“The 100 HP PROGreen Solution’s Chiller System is even equipped with Amazon Blink Cameras,” CEO, Jim Vandergiessen shared, “we look forward to speaking LIVE to Mr. Jongsma from Pixley, CA, and let him share directly how the system is serving his farm.”

Visitors will see how partnerships with a wide range of groups, (including AWS, FGN, Bitzer Compressor, Super Radiator Coils, Cryobuilt, and more) all helped make this project happen.
