Thermo King launches refrigerated trailer system with zero direct carbon emissions 16 November 2021

Combines fully electric refrigeration unit and highly efficient battery storage

Thermo King has premiered its trailer refrigeration system with zero direct carbon emissions. The Thermo King AxlePower technology combines a fully electric refrigeration unit, highly efficient battery storage, and the ability to run on low or zero-emissions power sources, such as an axle energy recovery system, shore power or hybrid system. The sustainable battery enables the refrigeration unit to operate autonomously and keep the cargo at optimal temperature, even when the vehicle is not running.

Temperature-controlled transport is subject to the highest operational safety requirements. This technology can ensure sensitive goods stay at the required temperature, while reducing energy, emissions, and noise – all important to a sustainable future.

The new solution delivers immediate and long-term sustainability benefits while reducing operating costs. With zero direct emissions and silent operation, it enables inner-city deliveries, including in Ultra-low Emission Zones (ULEZs). Intelligent energy management ensures that there are always enough battery reserves, even on long journeys or in traffic jams. If necessary, the system can also harvest energy from the tractive power of the trailer. All components are monitored in real time by a Thermo King telematics system.

Currently in the testing phase, this integrated system recovers energy generated when the vehicle is rolling, sailing or braking and stores it in Thermo King’s efficient battery to power the refrigeration system. This system is tractor-independent and compatible with all Thermo King trailer refrigeration units.
