Solent Transport powers skeletals for reefer boxes

Southampton, UK: Solent Transport Services has fitted an underslung genset to Krone’s sliding bogie Box Liner container carrier, to power refrigerated containers.

Solent has added 10 Box Liners to its container carrier fleet, the latest two fitted with the on-board auxiliary power.

The Krone Box Liners carry 20, 30, 40 and 45 foot containers, and two 20 foot boxes at once, or any standard sized tank.

The generators made by Genmark produce 70 dBa and can handle a 3 x 1-phase circuit with varying loads, as well as 3-phase loads at the same time. A 460v/60Hz option is also available.

Mike Lewry, managing director, Solent Transport Services says: “Our steady growth, since early 2013, has been underpinned by the maxim: If it goes in a container, we carry it”.

“That said, each customer’s requirements are individually catered for and since we added the gensets, we have even more flexibility to offer.”
