Hultsteins appoints Irish agent

Dublin, Ireland: Mulvey Refrigeration Technology and Fleet Maintenance has become a service agent for Hultsteins’ diesel-free refrigeration systems.

Mulvey Technology and Fleet Maintenance, with bases in Dublin and  Co Armagh, can install, maintain, repair and service truck refrigeration systems on all vehicle types.

Eoin Mulvey, managing director, Mulvey Technology, said: “Hultsteins electric drive and hydraulic technology allows existing fridge trailers to run on electric standby whilst the trailer is on the road. This means reduced fuel consumption and noise. Carbon output is reduced, which contributes to improved air quality” they continue, “and there is also the added advantage of considerable fuel savings. All of this can only be good for our customers and the environment too.”

Hultsteins has two main systems providing an alternative to traditional, diesel-powered fridge : Ecofridge is a hydraulic and electric single and multi temp unit for rigid trucks and Ecogen is a hydraulic systems powered by the tractor’s PTO, able to drive any conventional fridge through the electric standby power socket.

Ecogen generates the 400-volt power needed to run the fridge and is a bolt-on, bolt-off solution with a life expectancy of over 10 years. It comes in two models: the Ecogen Lowline is sited between the axles on rigid-bodied trucks and two-axle tractors, while the Ecogen Slimline fits behind the cab and suits gas-powered and 6×2 tractors where chassis space is at more of a premium.

Graham Usher, who handles Hultsteins’ UK and Ireland sales and marketing said: “In the refrigerated transport sector, perhaps more than any other, professional back up is vital to ensure customers’ goods arrive in perfect condition, every time. This is particularly important for us because our systems are new to Ireland and as such, we are delighted to have the reliable support of these two long-established service providers.”
