Corval provided the complete design-build refrigeration system for Northern Star Company’s new processing facility located in Chaska, MN. Corval designed and installed the new refrigeration system from the ground up. System highlights include a total system capacity of 2,140 TR with two suction levels and six (6) twin screw operators for a total of 2,700 HP of compressor. Michael Foods, based in Minnetonka, MN, is the parent company of Northern Star Company and we have been a partner of Michael Foods since 1988.
Northern Star was processing potatoes in its Minneapolis location prior to this project. The Minneapolis facility’s age and development around the facility had forced Northern Star to relocate. Northern Star bought and modified an existing 200,000 square foot building where they continue to produce their premium Simply Potato products, as well as other potato products for the food service industry.
