High power solar panel from Thermo King

Brussels, Belgium: Thermo King has added a 110watt solar panel to its ThermoLite solar panel range.

The new panel will keep the refrigeration unit’s battery fully charged in low light conditions
eliminating the need to use the engine to charge the battery.

The panel reduces fuel consumption by up to 23% and CO2 emissions by 560kg.

“The time is right for fleet owners to invest in renewable technologies that are innovative, reliable and sustainable,” said Gary Mullins, aftermarket product manager at Thermo King.

“These new, more powerful solar panels we give our customers a source of sustainable power on the road which increases operational efficiency, reducing their environmental footprint and favorable contributing to sustainability goals.”

ThermoLite solar panels ensure that the refrigeration unit battery remains continuously charged. This contributes to continuous operation of the reefer systems. Paired with telematics, it allows transport companies to be in constant contact with their trailers. Fleet managers can access critical unit data at any time – off-road or safely during the journey — to ensure that the load is protected at all times and the unit is running efficiently, Thermo King says.
