Carrier Transicold has signed a license for intellectual property and technology, including communication of know-how, with the French company, Avenir Développement Durable (ADD). Carrier Transicold, operating in France as Carrier Transicold France, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Within this agreement, concluded officially during an entrepreneurial exhibition in Marseille on Oct. 15, ADD will transfer its know-how associated with its AlertGasoil® solution to Carrier Transicold, which will develop services to reduce fuel consumption and emissions from transport refrigeration.
The AlertGasoil solution is based on patented technology that geo-locates equipped vehicles and continuously measures the fuel level present in the tank. Fuel volume is quantified by the AlertGasoil sensor, combined with a database of more than 3,500 tank models that have been tested and calibrated to precisely measure, in real time, incoming and outgoing fuel volumes, fuel waste, fuel theft, fuel consumption and associated CO2 emissions.
“This agreement enables Carrier Transicold to deliver an innovative solution to the challenges of fuel-related cost control, which strongly impacts transport companies,” said Victor Calvo, vice president and general manager, Carrier Transicold Truck & Trailer, EMEA, Russia and Asia. “The combination of AlertGasoil’s patented technology with the proven performance of Carrier Transicold transport refrigeration equipment will help enable improved fuel efficiency and reduced environmental impact – a win-win for customers.”
This new service, planned to be released by the end of next year, will allow Carrier Transicold’s customers to have more precise visibility of refrigeration units’ fuel consumption, which will help inform fuel consumption reduction strategies. The AlertGasoil technology will also help to lower operating costs while reducing carbon footprint.
“This agreement aligns with our mission, to provide refrigerated road transport operators with the best solutions to ensure cold chain integrity, in a sustainable way,” Calvo said.
