After more than 20 years of proven performance and constant evolution, Carrier Transicold launched its new generation of refrigeration unit range for trucks in Europe: the Supra® HE unit. Carrier Transicold is part of Carrier Global Corporation, the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.
The Supra refrigeration units for trucks continues its extension with high-efficiency models. The new range architectural design, components and structure offer efficiency, performance, reliability and improved maintenance operations. The Supra HE range is made up of five new models of semi-electric refrigeration units, available in four different versions (standard, silent, Nordic and road only). The first single-temperature units will be delivered before the end of 2021.
The new Supra range delivers up to 53%1 improvement in energy performance in comparison with the standard range models. It can consume up to 41%1 less fuel than the previous range, for lower pollutant emissions. Carrier Transicold's high efficiency products contribute to Carrier's goal of reducing its customers' carbon footprint by one gigaton as part of its environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals for 2030.
Raising the unit height by a few centimetres makes it a perfect fit for taller cabs or lower bodies and better suited to deliveries in urban environments. Tested under extreme operating conditions, in environments with outdoor temperatures ranging between -30 C and +55 C, the units are designed to be highly reliable.
Smaller, lighter and more ergonomic, the new range offers a high level of compatibility with tractors’ cabin and boxes various models and configuration and it eases the vehicle cab to be tilted for maintenance. Thanks to the easy access to components the maintenance operations are faster and easier to perform and comply with the highest safety protocols. The new Supra HE unit has a more efficient maintenance interval of 2,000 hours, an increase of 1,000 hours when compared to the legacy Supra unit. This provides customers more unit uptime and a lower cost to maintain the unit.
All the units in the Supra HE range are equipped with an telematics/telematics box making the units compatible with Carrier Transicold's Lynx™ Fleet digital telematics platform.* The new Supra HE range is part of Carrier's healthy, safe, sustainable cold chain programme to preserve and protect the supply of food, medicine and vaccines.
