Carrier Transicold to Unveil Electric and Sustainable Solutions at Brisbane Truck Show 2023
BRISBANE, Australia -
Carrier Transicold will unveil its sustainable and electric temperature-controlled transport units at the Brisbane Truck Show. Alongside the all-new Syberia eCool™, Eco-Drive 30T, Xarios® 6 and Vector® HE 17 systems, the company’s flagship Vector eCool™ all-electric engineless refrigerated trailer system will be on display. Carrier Transicold is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), global leader in intelligent climate and energy solutions
Suitable for operation with the engineless versions of Carrier Transicold’s Vector HE 19 and Vector 1550, the Vector eCool combines the company’s E-Drive all-electric technology with a cutting-edge energy recovery and storage system. This converts kinetic energy generated by the trailer axle into electricity, which is then stored in a battery pack to power the refrigeration unit. This loop creates a fully autonomous system that produces no direct carbon dioxide (CO2) or particulate emissions.
Carrier Transicold offers an electric product for all vehicle types and sizes, from vans and light commercial vehicles to rigid trucks and trailers. The latest all-electric product, the Syberia eCool, will make its Australian debut at the Brisbane Truck Show. With high cooling capacity of up to 14 kW in multi-temperature applications, the Syberia eCool operates through a connection to the high direct current (DC) voltage of an electric vehicle’s main batteries, removing the need for additional battery packs.
The new Vector HE 17 unit enhances the company’s range of Vector high-efficiency (HE) systems, and the new variable frequency drive technology on the compressor continuously alters the motor speed to match the cooling demand, increasing efficiency and reducing fuel consumption. The Vector HE 17 will also be available in a city version with improved sound performance, making it ideally suited for both long haul and urban operations.
Additionally, Carrier will showcase its Lynx™ Fleet digital platform, which offers end-to-end supply chain visibility, real-time monitoring, actionable insights and analytics, and improved sustainability for refrigerated transport operations.
All Carrier Transicold units can be bundled with a BluEdge™ comprehensive contract maintenance plan, the ultimate worry-free program for operators who demand the highest level of equipment reliability, uptimes and fiscal certainty.
These solutions support Carrier’s aim to reduce its customers’ carbon footprint by one gigaton, part of its 2030 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Goals. Learn more at corporate.carrier.com/healthycoldchain or visit carrier.com/truck-trailer/en/au/.
