To limit global temperature increase to below +2°C, all industries and communities must reduce greenhouse gas emissions radically within the next decade. Amongst other mitigation measures available to temperature controlled fleets is the Refrigeco drive, developed to transition from diesel fuelled to electric powered trailer refrigeration units.
We have been in consultation with experts in the field of renewables-based electrification to develop and analyse pathways towards climate-neutral temperature controlled logistics.
Refrigeco is a new and advanced technology to eliminate diesel fuel consumption by trailer fridges to nil. Carbon and NOX emissions are similarly reduced to zero and at the same time your business will be saving money.*
(*After the initial outlay)
Refrigeco is manufactured in the UK, it is a slim-fit hydraulic drive generator which connects to the engine’s PTO and simply plugs in to any refrigeration unit with mains electric operation.
The ergonomic design is finished in stainless steel, for longevity and quality. The operating system is easy for drivers to adopt, using a 4K touchscreen interface within the cab, which is styled in stainless steel for a quality appearance.
Fuel consumption and emissions are virtually eliminated while generating constant 400 volt, 3 phase electric power to the same standard as mains supply.
Refrigeco’s touchscreen programme gives you control and oversight of the entire vehicle including the trailer. The technology is so advanced that you can monitor and control every aspect of the vehicle, tracking the progress of the journey, including having sight of cameras on the trailer, tyre pressure monitoring and door security.
You can pre-set trailer temperatures remotely, for example from the planning or transport office. The driver also has in-cab temperature control. Alerts can be set up to suit your preferences.
For operations using multiple trailers per unit, this system allows you absolute control at all times.
This system is compatible with your existing tracking management systems.
