Chereau wins award for first hydrogen refrigerated trailer

Avranches, France: Chereau has received the Green Truck Solutions award for the first hydrogen refrigerated trailer (Road project).

Every year, German magazines VerkehrsRundschau and Trucker, give awards to the most environmentally friendly industrial vehicles. The environmental ranking includes fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of vehicles, determined in independent tests.

Chereau’s Road project has a double objective: reduce the environmental impact and improve the operating conditions in terms of ergonomics and safety.

Road project innovations include lightening of the chassis; aerodynamics; new generation insulation; management improvement of the different electrical systems; and, hydrogen reservoirs, the fuel cell, the power converter and the emission-free refrigeration unit.

The vehicle is about to enter a trial period in real conditions, which will conclude the three years of the project.
