With a wealth of updates to European legislation affecting the transport refrigeration industry, Carrier Transicold UK has created a handy new guidebook aimed at helping refrigerated fleet operators stay informed and compliant. Carrier Transicold, which operates in the UK as Carrier Transicold (UK) Limited, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
The 12-page “Cool Compliance” guide is available to download from Carrier Transicold’s website and provides information on compliance issues for cold-chain fleets, including the revised F-Gas Regulation and the EU Stage V Engine Emissions Regulation, which affects engines powering transport refrigeration units.
“We’ve created this guide as a helpful tool for fleet operators to stay up-to-date with legislation changes and to assist in forward-planning as customers look to –ensure the viability and sustainability of their refrigerated fleets,” said Scott Dargan, managing director, Carrier Transicold, Northern Europe and Service EMEAR. “It is important for commercial vehicle fleet operators to be fully conversant in the F-Gas and Stage V Engine Emissions Regulations, which contain rules that could require modifications in how their fleets are specified and managed.”
Additionally, the guide contains valuable advice on noise standards defined by PIEK certification and covers ATP certificate information. The latest refrigerant developments and options from Carrier Transicold are also outlined to aid customers in specifying and purchasing new transport refrigeration equipment.
“At Carrier, we incorporate sustainability into everything we do,” explained Dargan. “It is engrained in the culture of the organisation. We are pleased to be able to help our customers decipher the sometimes complex legislation on this issue and offer solutions to help them remain compliant.”
