Aura wins $420,000 order for all-electric refrigeration

Los Angeles, CA, US: Aura Systems has received a $420,000 order for its all electric transport refrigeration systems for midsize trucks from one customer.

The systems are scheduled to be delivered and installed for the customer over the next two months. The customer selected Aura’s all electric transport refrigeration after numerous tests and evaluation including comparison on actual routes with traditional diesel-based solutions.

Aura uses its mobile power solution and a transport refrigeration system from Zanotti of Italy. The solution eliminates the traditional diesel engine used for refrigeration and replaces it with all electric components, thus eliminating any and all emissions associated with small diesel engines, significantly reducing fuel consumption and providing very large reduction in noise associated with diesel refrigeration engines.

When the vehicle is parked for deliveries, the engine is shut down and the refrigeration system continues to work by using Aura’s patented bi-directional power supply to provide power from batteries.

These batteries are recharged whenever the vehicle’s engine is on. With this solution, the truck does not need to idle thus complying with the environmental standards encompassed in the anti-idling laws.

Melvin Gagerman, chief executive, Aura, says: “Our all-electric solution for midsize transport refrigeration trucks is clearly a leap ahead technology that could potentially change the entire industry.

“Going electric for this application is made possible by our patented AuraGen solution of providing simultaneously both AC and DC power and our unique architecture that provides for seamless transition from prime-mover on to off to on again without any power interruptions, and having a state of the art transport refrigeration system from Zanotti.

“We are very pleased that a major user of transport refrigeration selected our solution over traditional solutions.”
