Thermo King is to invest more than $100m (£72m) over the next three years to deliver a fully electric product in every segment of the cold chain by 2023.
The developments will appear as part of the company’s all-electric portfolio, evolve, and will include electric refrigeration solutions for truck, trailer, rail, air and marine transport.
Electric solutions will be available in every cold chain segment in EMEA by 2023, and adopted in the Americas by 2025.
“Bold solutions for a more sustainable world are core to our strategy. We continue to innovate to help reduce the carbon footprint of customer operations,” said Paul Camuti, chief technology and sustainability officer for Trane Technologies, owner of Thermo King.
“The evolve portfolio builds on our ongoing efforts to help customers reduce environmental impact and meet their sustainability goals as they transition fleets and stay ahead of future regulation,” he continued.
Karin De Bondt, president for Thermo King Americas, added: “Our expertise in electrification has positioned Thermo King as a trusted partner to respected industry leaders such as Isuzu, Tesco, Mercedes-Benz and technology companies such as ELMS, Gatik and BPW who continue to find new ways to innovate the cold chain.”
