The latest coldchain solutions at TCS&D

Peterborough, UK: Companies wanting to take advantage of new capital allowances should visit the Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution Exhibition to see the latest technologies for the cold chain sector.

New capital allowances in the recent budget are designed to encourage investment and boost recovery from the pandemic. Under the super-deduction scheme, companies can claim 130% capital allowances on investments in qualifying plant and machinery – including lorries, vans, refrigeration units, electric vehicle charge points and much more – from 1 April 2021 until the end of March 2023.

This means that there is no better time for operators in the temperature-controlled storage and distribution sector to invest in the latest technology – and there’s no better place to discover leading-edge solutions than the TCS&D 2021 Exhibition, the show organiser says.

The exhibition takes place alongside the TCS&D Conference and TCS&D Awards at the East of England Arena in Peterborough on 7 and 8 September.

New products on display
Products and services on display include many on show for the first time. Cold chain electric vehicle supplier NRG Fleet Services will be showing the Electra e-Cargo SEIV 19t refrigerated electric vehicle. This is the UK’s first fully electric temperature-controlled truck in the UK with technology that provides continuous power to the on-board refrigeration system, allowing zero-emission operation even when the vehicle is stationary. In addition to its lower carbon footprint, the technology reduces noise levels during loading and unloading.

Hubbard Products will introduce its new Uno series direct-drive diesel refrigeration units at TCS&D 2021. The multi-temperature units are suitable for medium or large box body vehicles and available in three capacities. On the Hubbard Products stand will be a monoblock example, along with a brand-new, powerful and precise in-cab controller and microprocessor. Also on display will be the Hubbard Zer0° Electric range and the Hubbard SFZ range.

Goldfreeze will show the latest upgrades to its Hi-Glo Cold Store and Freezer clothing. “These garments now feature sustainable Dupont Sorona insulation, which delivers unbelievable warmth, maximum comfort and incredible breathability,” saysTarek Hayat, managing director Goldfreeze. “This is just one element of our commitment to transition to sustainable products and business processes by 2030.” Goldfreeze will also exhibit its Coffee Carbon base-layer, made from yarn derived from recycled coffee waste. “Sustainability is at the centre of our thinking, something we are highlighting with the launch of our Sustainability Mark at TCS&D,” he said. Visitors to the Goldfreeze stand will also see its new cold store footwear due to launch later this year.

Coldstore builders ISD Solutions will include products from the Dutch high-performance door manufacturer, Salco, with which ISD recently signed a distribution agreement. ISD Solutions has experienced significant growth in recent months due to increased demand for automated high-bay freezer warehouses, driven by Brexit and the growth in online food retail resulting from the pandemic. The company has also delivered almost 5,000m2 of certified fireproof separation walls for the new UK Vaccines Manufacturing and Innovation Centre at Harwell in Oxfordshire, due to open this summer.

Star Refrigeration will show its new, free app, the Specific Energy Consumption tool, that enables owners and operators to benchmark coldstore energy consumption against industry standards and UK best practice. The company will promote its latest low-charge ammonia systems designed to reduce energy costs, avoid the uncertainty of synthetic F-Gas refrigerants. The Star Refrigeration team will also showcase the Envi range of CO2 refrigeration chillers and freezers, suitable for smaller applications, and visitors can find out about Ethos – the company’s bespoke, data-driven analysis service – which can help in the transition towards a net zero cold chain sector.

Get behind the wheel
Visitors to the TCS&D Show will have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of vehicles – including electric ones – to experience handling and performance, as the show’s Ride & Drive Experience track.

Covid-secure measures
The show’s organisers will be complying fully with government guidelines to make TCS&D 2021 a Covid-secure event. Despite the end of restricted attendance figures for indoor events being scheduled for late June, TCS&D will still cap the number of visitors to the show in September at 1,000 per day. “In addition, there will be thermal camera checks on arrival, numerous sanitiser stations and wider aisles,” said Martyn Cogan, exhibition director, “and we’ll also be locating more exhibits than ever in the TCS&D Outdoor Marketplace.”
