Dometic enters last-mile delivery transport business

Stockholm, Sweden: Dometic has launched the Dometic Frigo DC – an electronic cooling system for temperature-controlled transport for the last-mile delivery market.

Dometic Frigo DC is designed for the refrigeration of smaller commercial vehicles with tight engine compartments which are increasingly popular due to the need for energy-efficient urban transport.

Dometic Frigo DC has a powerful electric compressor without mechanical construction. It also features a unique design to combine compressor and condenser into a single unit. It is compact, lightweight and does not require a roof-mounted structure, resulting in improved aerodynamics and appearance. The design even allows for use in low ceiling parking spaces.

When the supply voltage is low, the performance of the compressor is automatically reduced to keep the cooling system going without exhausting the vehicle’s battery. It both saves energy and prolongs service life, while maintaining a reliable operation and a constant temperature in all situations.

Dometic Frigo DC is said to reduce energy consumption while securing a stable performance.

Juan Vargues, president and chief executive, Dometic, says: “With Frigo DC, Dometic brings its innovative, energy saving and future-proof technology to the temperature-controlled transportation industry. Our superior design and technology make us unique in the market and we intend to grow further in the professional vehicle business.”
