Carrier showcases all-electric refrigerated trailer tech at Brisbane Truck Show

Carrier Transicold has unveiled its sustainable and electric temperature-controlled transport units at the Brisbane Truck Show.

Alongside the all-new Syberia eCool, Eco-Drive 30T, Xarios 6 and Vector HE 17 systems, the company’s flagship Vector eCool all-electric engineless refrigerated trailer system will be on display.

Suitable for operation with the engineless versions of Carrier Transicold’s Vector HE 19 and Vector 1550, the Vector eCool combines the company’s E-Drive all-electric technology with a cutting-edge energy recovery and storage system. This converts kinetic energy generated by the trailer axle into electricity, which is then stored in a battery pack to power the refrigeration unit. This loop creates a fully autonomous system that produces no direct carbon dioxide (CO2) or particulate emissions.

Carrier Transicold offers an electric product for all vehicle types and sizes, from vans and light commercial vehicles to rigid trucks and trailers. The latest all-electric product, the Syberia eCool, will make its Australian debut at the Brisbane Truck Show. With high cooling capacity of up to 14 kW in multi-temperature applications, the Syberia eCool operates through a connection to the high direct current (DC) voltage of an electric vehicle’s main batteries, removing the need for additional battery packs.

The new Vector HE 17 unit enhances the company’s range of Vector high-efficiency (HE) systems, and the new variable frequency drive technology on the compressor continuously alters the motor speed to match the cooling demand, increasing efficiency and reducing fuel consumption. The Vector HE 17 will also be available in a city version with improved sound performance, making it ideally suited for both long haul and urban operations.

Additionally, Carrier is exhibiting its Lynx Fleet digital platform, which offers end-to-end supply chain visibility, real-time monitoring, actionable insights and analytics, and improved sustainability for refrigerated transport operations.

All Carrier Transicold units can be bundled with a BluEdge comprehensive contract maintenance plan, the ultimate worry-free program for operators who demand the highest level of equipment reliability, uptimes and fiscal certainty.

In other news, logistics company, Martin Brower, continues to grow and minimises its carbon footprint with the use of refrigerated transport technology from Carrier Transicold.
