The all new energy efficient Kilkenny VS Beer Cooling System was shortlisted for two prestigious national awards – The SEAI Awards 2015 (Innovation Category) and the IBEC Environment Awards 2016 (New product category). In January 2016 the Kilkenny VS won the Best Product award. The system is independently shown to be the most energy efficient beer cooling system on the market.
This design solves one of the most significant issues associated with running all draught beer cooling systems – how to keep the product in the lines cool and fresh during quiet periods without using large amounts of electricity running refrigeration and pumps. The system was proven to use 28% less power than a modern standard Kilkenny Beer Cooling System in a typical three python installation. Opportunities for savings in outlets with older coolers, or low-demand profiles are even higher – with savings estimates up to and exceeding 50% deemed achievable.

The VS is commercially available from Early February 2016.
