Thermo King unveils its latest technology and sustainable advancements at IAA



Thermo King,a manufacturer of transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand,is marking new milestones and launching breakthrough solutions at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show on 25 September – 02 October in Hannover, Germany.

Thermo King will introduce solutions that address emerging market trends, pending legislation and the company’s commitment to energy efficiency and sustainability.

“For more than 75 years, Thermo King has pioneered the advancement of transport temperature control technology to reliably, efficiently and sustainably deliver goods and transport people,” said Dwight Gibson, vice president, Thermo King Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“Together with our strong dealer network, we are unveiling at IAA new customer and market-driven solutions and a product portfolio designed for cost effectiveness, optimal energy efficiency, performance, and compliance with the most stringent local standards and regulations.”

Reducing the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of transport refrigeration without compromising safety, capacity or efficiency

At the show, Thermo King is announcing its commitment to helping customers reduce its greenhouse gas footprint. Thermo King has made considerable investments in truck and trailer refrigeration products that are reliable, energy and operationally efficient products that use refrigerant with lower GWP.

These product alternatives will be available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in 2015, and in the United States once the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approves this next generation refrigerant. The alternative refrigerant, R-452A, has about half the GWP and does notcompromise the safety, capacity or efficiency of the solution

Thermo King is offering customers a choice of how and when to make an early transition to lower GWP refrigerants (that are safe and more climate-friendly) with increasing product performance. This refrigerant transition would avoid approximately 1.6 million metric tons of CO2 in the US by 2020, which is equivalent to the energy used by nearly 150,000 homes over one year or to the installation of more than 400 wind turbines.

Thermo King looks forward to being a strong partner in making the cold food chain and pharmaceutical distribution more sustainable.
