a view toward the performance of the complete system. Our ability to
accurately simulate refrigeration performance is key to our excellent design
results. Existing facility efficiency can be measured with VaCom
models that use the DOE2 simulation tool. This allows VaCom to assess
the economic benefit of various alternatives. Project design assistance with
refrigeration system alternatives, control system options and also lighting
and envelop improvements are all part of VaCom's service offering.
More specifics on our simulation methodology and tools can be found under
