BELGIUM: Thermo King has announced a collaboration with German transport solutions company BPW in a move to achieve zero-emission trailer transport refrigeration.
Thermo King and BPW have combined their research and development expertise to transform the way refrigerated trailers are powered. Since autumn 2019, both companies have worked together to create a sustainable power solution for refrigerated trailers that will not only be environmentally friendly but also bring transport companies substantial cost savings.
Both companies maintain that they have now reached a significant junction and are convinced that continued progress will soon deliver to market a reliable and efficient solution making zero-emission trailer transport refrigeration a reality.
Thermo King EMEA president Francesco Incalza said that the partnership with BPW “brings us closer to meeting our 2030 sustainability goals and combatting exhaust, CO2 and noise pollutions in our industry”.
Thore Bakker, general manager trailer solutions & mobility services at BPW, added “Together with Thermo King, BPW is addressing the urgent problems of refrigerated transport, whose refrigeration units are still powered by a separate diesel engine today. By combining our competences as technology leaders for freight transport solutions we can make temperature control systems more environmentally friendly through new energy concepts in the trailer.”
