US: Thermo King launches all-electric fridge

Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA: Thermo King now has a fully electric refrigeration unit for small to medium-sized vans and trucks.

The E-200 provides a unique mix of control and convenience, paired with low noise and reduced weight, and offers an attractive solution across urban settings and final mile deliveries, Thermo King says.

Unlike typical direct drive systems designed for diesel engines, the E-200 represents the future in transport refrigeration by delivering constant capacity independent from the vehicles engine and can work with both electric and engine-powered vehicles, Thermo King says.

The E-200’s plug-and-play solution requires no road compressor or drive kit to function. It features a power management system, which contributes to lower energy consumption, increased vehicle autonomy and higher efficiency and reliability.

The E-200 has a tailor-made inverter for constant capacity independent of the vehicle engine, a variable speed compressor for temperature control, and a smart controller with power management intelligence to manage the supply and demand of power.

Combined with electric vehicles, the E-200 creates refrigerated transportation that delivers food and perishable items safely with zero-emission, low noise and maximum convenience for urban populations, Thermo King says.

“The E-200 represents the next generation of all-electric refrigeration units. It provides our customers with refrigeration that moves beyond direct drive systems and helps them meet their sustainability targets throughout the cold chain,” said Tracey Patterson, truck product manager for Thermo King.

“As an industry leader, Thermo King is committed to adapting technologies with zero-emission and are compliant with growing regional and national regulations.”
