Penguin Refrigeration announces unveiling of its partner’s product launches and leading innovations at this year’s METSTRADE

METSTRADE | 15 – 17 November 2023 | Stand 12.420 and 02.301

Penguin Refrigeration, Europe’s leading supplier of specialist marine refrigeration and air conditioning solutions, announces a suite of new products by Veco and Vitrifrigo at this year’s METSTRADE, on stands 12.420 and 02.301.

Penguin Directors, Zeb Elliott and Chris Feibusch will be on hand at METSTRADE, supporting their partners Vitrifrigo (stand 12.240) and Veco (stand 02.301) as each company launches a range of new products; from high-performance and low-consumption customisable refrigeration options to compact air conditioning units and sustainable solutions.

Chris Feibusch, Marketing Director of Penguin Refrigeration adds, “I am delighted to join Vitrifrigo and Veco in the unveiling of their exciting new launches and globally renowned product lines at this year’s METSTRADE! I look forward to welcoming show visitors to the Vitrifrigo and Veco stands,12.420 and 02.301, where we will be happy to provide product demonstrations and company insight.”

Veco, pioneer in cutting-edge climate control solutions for the marine environment, is proud to unveil a new addition to the brand’s line of Climma chillers on stand 02.301, the DC90, and its latest innovation – a variable speed Air Handling Unit and extractors line dedicated to marine applications.


Veco DC90

Building upon the success of the renowned Climma variable speed chiller DC line, Veco’s new product launch, the DC90, offers unparalleled efficiency, adaptability, and reliability. With exceptional power and versatility, the model provides variable speed technology, designed with adaptability in mind. The DC90 is available in three power supply options (230/1/50-60, 230/3/50-60, and 400/3/50-60), ensuring compatibility with a wide range of setups. Users can integrate more DC90 units under a centralised control, offering modularity while retaining all the benefits of variable speed technology.

The DC90’s variable speed system allows for seamless modulation of power within a single chiller. Based on the load requirements, the system dynamically adjusts compressor speed, optimising capacity and optimum energy efficiency. This groundbreaking technology not only saves energy but also extends the chiller’s lifespan. The DC90’s water-cooled inverter and ECO function features not only contribute to energy savings, but also reduce the chiller’s overall carbon footprint. The integration of an ECO function ensures that energy is conserved without compromising on performance, making the DC90 an eco-conscious choice.

The DC90 sets new industry standards with its ZERO start current, minimising impact on the power supply and reducing operational costs. Additionally, its reduced compressor starts and stops cycles to enhance durability, ensuring long-lasting performance even in demanding conditions. Remarkably compact, the DC90 boasts the smallest footprint on the market, allowing for flexible installation in space-constrained environments.

AHU ControllerVeco’s Air Handling Unit

Veco will also present its new variable speed Air Handling Units (AHU) and extractors, engineered with precision and combining cutting-edge technology with unparalleled efficiency, available in three sizes, from 600m3 to 2,000m3. Providing superior airflow and efficiency, thanks to the brand’s brushless high-pressure variable speed fans, the new AHU and extractors are engineered to ensure optimal air distribution in any marine setting. The new Climma AHU Controller interface goes beyond the basics; it not only manages the air handling unit but also integrates extractor control, enhancing the system’s functionality and simplifying operation. Customers can seamlessly connect and control the marine air handling unit through Modbus interface, providing easy integration with remote monitoring systems.

Climma’s new variable speed AHU Controller achieves precise control over ventilation systems with the integrated dampers’ control, allowing users to regulate fire dampers within the same AHU and extractor Climma controller. Optimising energy consumption with the model’s innovative free cooling option, the AHU intelligently utilises external air to cool accommodation areas, significantly reducing energy costs and environmental impact. To make installation easier, Climma has developed a pre-installed 3-way water valve, enabling the monitoring of water flow on bigger models through the included flow meter sensor. Built to withstand the rigors of marine environments, Climma’s variable speed AHU is corrosion-resistant and engineered for durability, ensuring longevity and optimal performance in challenging conditions.

Vitrifrigo, leading Italian marine refrigeration brand, will showcase its leading high efficiency marine refrigeration series on stand 12.420 – the DRW, DRINKS and CRF Series’. Each series comes with a unique set of features to cater to the ever-growing demands in the marine industry. The brand will also have its renowned product lines on the stand, including its innovative icemakers and new water tank, which offers simplified extraction, filling, and washing, with an integrated UV-C LED disinfection system to purify water from bacteria.


Vitrifrigo’s DW62Vitrifrigo’s DRINKS Series is designed to enhance onboard comfort by providing convenient storage for drinks and beverages. The series features a sliding basket on the upper part of the drawer, equipped with a drawer separator for three 2-litre bottles. The DRINKS models, DW62 and DW90, come with an internal LED light system ensuring optimum illumination whilst maintaining minimal energy consumption.

Vitrifrigo’s DRINKS SeriesThe DW62 DRINKS model offers a new digital thermostat to guarantee maximum functionality, customisable to the desired temperature, allowing for a constant cycle of cooling for drinks at +8°C to -4°C. The positioning of the door, either flush or external, is made easy with a stainless-steel fixing profile for improved air circulation and cooling efficiency. Moreover, the refrigerator can be attached to the recessed compartment from the inside, making installation a breeze. The DRINKS Series is a sleek solution with customisable configuration and a luxury interior finish with flexible space management – the ultimate chilling system for beverages. 

DRW Series

Vitrifrigo’s DRW180AThe DRW Series from Vitrifrigo offers exceptional flexibility with temperature control, giving customers the freedom to choose between freezer or refrigerator mode. The DRW180A and DRW70A models will be on show on the stand, featuring a new elegant square profile door design and Steelock handle with a stainless-steel finish. Notably, the Steelock handle includes a “vent position” function to prevent the formation of mold and odours during periods of non-use, while the new sliding drawer guides ensure a gentle and silent movement.

The DRW Series provides interchangeability with previous DW180 and DW70 models and supports a wide range of power supplies, including 12/24Vdc and 12/24Vdc 100-240Vac. The DRW180A and DRW70A maintains an internal temperature of -18°C in freezer mode, and +4°C in refrigeration mode, even in ambient temperatures of up to 43°C, thanks to an efficient ventilation system. The series also features a digital thermostat for precise temperature control and premium interior LED lighting for optimal visibility and minimal energy consumption.

CRF Series

Vitrifrigo’s CFR XRVitrifrigo’s CRF Series is the highly efficient refrigeration solution with precise temperature control, available in two versions, providing optional remote or integrated units.

Frigoboat MS700 a Direct Replacement for the Subzero 700

A Frigoboat refrigerator is a beautiful piece of equipment forming a natural focal point in any galley.  The MS700 has been specifically produced to provide large yachts and power boats with an alternative to the Subzero 700, but designed for the ocean, rather than your Knightsbridge kitchen.  The MS700 is built in stainless steel, inside and out, has fiddle upstands on the shelves, secure slam latch catches  and is supplied with a fixing system to ensure it is locked and safely secured in position for roughest passages.

MS700 Subzero 700 replacement

Frigoboat’s marine quality and standard with all the Subzero 700 functionality

There is no compromise on the performance of the Frigoboat MS700 fridge freezer either.  Dual compressors ensure that the fridge and freezer are operated individually, giving precise temperature control to maintain your food in the optimum condition, whether fresh or frozen.

Key Features:

  • Separate compressors maintain optimum conditions for both refrigerator and freezer, so no air moves back and forth from one to the other.
  • Highly insulated cabinet and tropical condensers ensure the best performance, wherever in the World you cruise.
  • Hidden slam latch handles, ensure a good seal is always achieved and the refrigerator is secure when the boat is at sea.
  • Door seals are removable so can be replaced/renewed when required.
  • Heated door seals reduce risk of condensation in high ambient or humid conditions.
  • The interior shelves are all height adjustable with fiddle upstands.
  • Supplied with three standard shelves and a wine shelf.
  • Polished stainless steel bottle holders in the door
  • The digital thermostats allow full control of each compartment making it easier to optimise the refrigerator to your precise needs.
  • Thermostats have the option of a Celsius or Fahrenheit display.
  • Power supply 230V 50Htz or 60Htz
  • Supplied as standard with brushed stainless steel doors with hidden latches, but also available as an integrated unit to be fitted behind your own galley doors.

Frigoboat equipment is built by hand and every unit is extensively tested to ensure reliability.  Designed to stand the test of time – like the Subzero 700 it is a true design classic, but unlike the Subzero 700 it is fully optimised for use on the Ocean.
