Transport refrigeration specialists Thermo King and Frigoblock will be exhibiting their zero-emission electric and hybrid systems at this year’s CV Show.

On display will be the Thermo King B-series, the all-electric and zero emission last mile delivery range, for fresh, frozen and heated customer applications. The company has also introduced a telematics system, designed for the Thermo King vehicle powered truck V-Series and B-Series units, that allows customers to monitor refrigeration equipment data.

Also on show will be the new SLXi Hybrid trailer refrigeration unit that combines expertise from both companies. It is designed for operators that travel into restricted, low-noise and low-emission urban areas and who want to lower their environmental footprint and operating costs.

Pauli Johannesen, vice president and general manager of Thermo King’s Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) truck, trailer and bus business, said: “This year’s line-up of zero-emission all electric and hybrid transport refrigeration systems is the embodiment of our guiding principles of environmental, business and social sustainability.

“For many decades Thermo King and Frigoblock solutions have ensured the sustainability of our customers’ operations whether in truck, trailer or home delivery operations.

“This year, both brands celebrate their 80th and 40th anniversaries respectively exemplifying our long term commitment to listening to our customers and their needs.”
