RUEIL-MALMAISON, France -
Solutrans - Stand 4A122
16 - 20 November 2021 – Eurexpo, Lyon, France
Carrier Transicold has launched the Vector S15 unit in Europe, a new, easy-to-maintain, fuel-efficient, semi-electric refrigeration unit delivering high standards of performance. Carrier Transicold is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.
“The Vector S15 single-temperature refrigeration unit was designed to meet the needs of transport companies looking for an efficient, economical and easy-to-maintain refrigeration system, suitable for both long-distance journeys and inter-city deliveries,” said Pablo Martinez, Sales Director-EMEA, Carrier Transicold. “The ‘S’ represents smart, semi-electric and simple operation.”
This semi-electric solution supports Carrier’s aim to reduce its customers’ carbon footprint by one gigaton, part of its 2030 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Goals. The new Vector S15 unit offers 15 kilowatts of cooling capacity and a multi-speed diesel engine, which is designed to reduce fuel consumption. In addition, the open architecture of the Vector S15 makes maintenance more convenient given the ease of part access that helps keep workshop downtime to a minimum.
The Vector S15 is the lightest trailer model in this market segment (700 kg) and one of the quietest in the Carrier Transicold semi-trailer range in its standard version (71 dB(A) in high speed, down to 62 dB(A) in low speed). Previewed at Solutrans, the Vector S15 will be available in two versions, one diesel engine only and another including standby mode (first quarter 2022).
The Vector S15 unit is part of Carrier's healthy, safe, sustainable cold chain programme to preserve and protect the supply of food, medicine and vaccines.
