Thermo King’s all-electric zero-emission trailer fridge

Brussels, Belgium:  Thermo King has launched an innovative zero emissions trailer fridge. The all-electric trailer refrigeration unit provides energy-efficient, sustainable transport for fresh and frozen applications.

The all-electric refrigeration system has an advanced multi-functional power management system that takes power from any source and converts and conditions it to gain minimum energy consumption.

The unit features a closed loop, two-stage R-744 trans-critical refrigeration system which offers precise temperature control at fresh and frozen conditions.

This solution provides a unique variable two-stage compressor, variable frequency gas cooler and evaporator blowers. This solution offers a 60 dB(A) noise level or lower, compliant with Piek standards, allowing for night time distribution in urban and residential areas.

Mark Watson, vice president of strategic product planning at Thermo King says: “This unit is a demonstration project that combines an environmentally responsible refrigerant choice with advanced power electronics. Power can come from a number of sources such as a truck-mounted generator, shore power or a ‘clean and silent genset’,.”

“Commercialization plans will depend on long-term testing to ensure the highest level of reliability and durability in all applications, which is what our customers expect from Thermo King,” he says.
