Carrier Transicold stand together with TRS

Carrier Transicold’s latest innovations to help maintain a high-performance cold chain while reducing its environmental footprint were on display at the Transport Compleet Show, March 15-17 in Hardenberg, Netherlands.

In addition to a variety of refrigerants and advanced products, the booth featured for the first time solutions from newly acquired TRS Transportkoeling b.v. (TRS), a Dutch manufacturer and service provider of sustainable transport refrigeration systems for trailers, trucks and containers.

A successful educational session

Carrier Transicold welcomed 48 key customers – ranging from transport companies, bodybuilders, to supermarkets - to its Sustainability Congress on March 16th. This session provided participants with an opportunity to learn more about Carrier Transicold’s vision, its use of natural refrigerants, as well as opportunities to reduce polluting emissions.

New refrigerant choices

Visitors could learn more about Carrier Transicold’s lower global warming potential refrigerant options, including the new R-452A alternative refrigerant and Carbon dioxide (CO2) natural refrigerant. Cost-effective, readily available worldwide and with a GWP of only one, CO2 refrigerant is roughly 2,000 times better than R-452A (GWP 2,141) and 4,000 times better than R-404A (GWP 3,922). CO2 refrigerant is non-flammable and non-ozone depleting.

New energy sources

Carrier Transicold also showcased its engineering innovations to develop alternative energy sources with the introduction of a prototype engine using compressed natural gas (CNG), which enables a significant reduction in polluting emissions — 95 per cent in particulate emissions, 70 per cent in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions — and noise emissions.

TRS, a new member of the Carrier Transicold family

The Transport Compleet show was the first occasion for Carrier Transicold to present the TRS range of sustainable transport refrigeration systems for trucks, containers and controlled atmosphere refrigerated transport. TRS, which became part of the Carrier Transicold family last month, designs, produces and services engineless refrigeration systems using hydro-electric technology.
