Chereau’s hydrogen refrigerated trailer starts tests with French transport group

Ducey, France: Chereau has handed over its first hydrogen refrigerated trailer (Road project) to the French transport group Malherbe for final tests.

This is the last phase of a large-scale, three-year collaborative €5.5m project.

A press conference to mark the event, where Chereau handed the keys to the trailer over to Malherbe, was held in early July.

Chereau said: “We would like to thank once again all our partners who have contributed to the realization of this major project, which paves the way for a new era in refrigerated transport.”

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.
