Carrier Transicold is showcasing its continued commitment to efficient and sustainable refrigerated transport solutions with the launch of its next generation temperature-controlled trailer refrigeration system.
Launching at the 67th IAA Commercial Vehicles trade fair in Hanover, Germany, the new flagship trailer system has been redesigned to deliver new levels of efficiency for road transport operators. Key to its performance is significantly improved fuel consumption versus its predecessor, which reduces fleet running costs and its environmental impact.
“IAA is the biggest event of its kind in the European road transport industry and the perfect occasion to showcase our new trailer refrigeration technology in front of tens of thousands of visitors,” said Bertrand Gueguen, president, International Truck Trailer, Carrier Transicold. “The launch signifies our commitment to making our refrigerated transport solutions even more efficient and environmentally sustainable.”
The new unit will be built around Carrier E-Drive all-electric technology, which was first developed 20 years ago and has continued to evolve within Carrier Transicold’s product range. The E-Drive technology is forward-thinking and works by removing the mechanical transmissions found in conventional belt-driven equipment and converting the unit’s diesel engine power into electricity through a generator in order to drive the refrigeration system. This is a patented innovation that has brought the highest standards of efficiency, reliability and performance to the transport refrigeration sector.
Carrier Transicold helps improve transport and shipping of temperature-controlled cargoes with a complete line of equipment and services for refrigerated transport and cold chain visibility. For more than 45 years, Carrier Transicold has been an industry leader, providing customers around the world with advanced, energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable container refrigeration systems and generator sets, direct-drive and diesel truck units, and trailer refrigeration systems. Carrier Transicold is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp., a leading provider to the aerospace and building systems industries worldwide.
