IRELAND: Transport refrigeration company Thermo King has opened a new R&D centre adjacent to its factory in Galway, adding to the company’s electrification design and engineering capabilities in Europe. 

The R&D centre, with capacity for up to 70 engineers, joins the existing R&D centre in Essen, Germany. It is part of parent company Trane’s more than $100m investment to deliver fully electric products in every segment of the cold chain in Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) by 2023 and in the Americas by 2025.

“Our new R&D centre generates another space for innovation, creativity and learning,” said Francesco Incalza, president of Thermo King EMEA at Trane Technologies at yesterday’s opening ceremony. “The technologies developed on-site will add to the more than 40,000-strong fleet of Thermo King electric and fuel-efficient transport refrigeration units delivering food, vaccines, medicines and other critical goods across Europe and beyond.”
