Maersk orders 12,900 PrimeLINEs
USA: In one of the largest ever orders of its type, Carrier Transicold has received an order for 12,900 PrimeLINE container refrigeration units.
The order from Maersk Line is for the units to be installed on 40ft high-cube containers for replacement and expansion of its refrigerated container fleet.
“Over the course of a relationship spanning nearly three decades, Carrier and Maersk have worked together to make significant advancements in reducing shipboard energy consumption while lowering emissions,” said David Appel, president, Carrier Transicold & Refrigeration.
The PrimeLINE unit has been used by Maersk Line since 2007. Maersk Line’s PrimeLINE units, in normal operating modes, are expected to save enough energy over their lifetimes to eliminate more than 1.6 million tons CO2e relative to industry average.
