Daikin launches electric trailer fridge

Ostend, Belgium: Daikin Europe is to launch its Exigo Electric trailer fridge at next week’s IAA Transport show in Hanover, Germany.

The Daikin Exigo range, launched a year ago, and was Daikin’s first road transport trailer fridge. The new unit is an electric-ready version.

Evren Akçora, senior manager, transport refrigeration, Daikin Europe, said: “The electric architecture of the Exigo platform was specifically designed to be future-ready, enabling the company to announce details of the engineless variant less than one year after announcing details of the original diesel-powered unit.

“We have also designed the Exigo platform with the utmost flexibility and the end-user in mind. We are working with different partners, be they trailer manufacturers, energy and drive specialists or end-users to ensure that Exigo meets today’s and tomorrow’s needs, especially as it concerns energy efficiency and reducing emissions.”

The fridge can be powered by an external electrical supply such as batteries or generation systems like e-axles, hydrogen fuel cells and solar panels. It can be powered by the more efficient high voltage direct current power coming directly from the batteries.

Daikin Europe is a subsidiary of Daikin Industries. In 2016, Daikin acquired Zanotti, a transport refrigeration system maker founded in 1962.
