Thermo King launches most powerful multi-temperature fridge unit on the market

Guissona, Spain: Thermo King has unveiled its latest multi-temperature unit, the V700 Max Spectrum, the latest addition to the V-Series and the most powerful multi-temperature unit in the vehicle powered range market place.

The V700, powered from the vehicle engine, has a nominal capacity 30% higher than its direct competitors and is the most environmentally friendly unit on the market, says Thermo King.

The refrigeration unit is a low noise unit suitable for trucks up to 7-metres long, and meets requirements for transversal and longitudinal two-compartment configurations.

Guissona, a Spanish food manufacturer and supplier, had the first eighteen V700 Max Spectrum refrigeration units installed on its fleet in early 2011. Distributing products from its warehouses in Guissona town, it delivers to Guissona stores in northeastern Spain. Each vehicle makes 300 to 400km journeys, often more than once a day.

“On long distance deliveries, it is extremely important that clients save on fuel costs,” says Eneko Fernandez, product manager of Vehicle Powered Truck. “The V700 series allows customers to do just that as the V700 Max Spectrum refrigeration unit draws power from the vehicle itself, not a separate diesel engine, meaning less fuel use per delivery. On average this unit allows Guissona to save in each truck in use €3,000 (US$4,300) a year on fuel compared to direct competitor’s diesel powered units.

“The product design is also unique and stems from a client’s need for the refrigeration unit to adapt to their changing needs. Initially, Guissona had smaller vehicles and so the smaller V500 multi-temperature unit was satisfactory. As the business developed, each load has grown considerably larger, creating a demand for larger transportation vehicles and thus, more powerful refrigeration units.

“Thermo King has really exceeded all expectations with the release of the V700 Max Spectrum. This V700 unit is functional and powerful, yet is fuel-efficient, eco-friendly and cost effective. The V700 Max Spectrum is the only refrigeration unit in the marketplace that really fulfils Guissona’s requirements,” says Fernandez.
