The UK gets its first look at Carrier Transicold’s new refrigerated trailer system – the Vector HE 19 – at this year’s CV Show.

The new design, Carrier said, delivers a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 30%, a 10% saving in weight, noise reduction of 3dB(A) and up to 15% savings on maintenance costs.

Managing director Scott Dargan said: “The Vector HE 19 delivers significant performance advantages for our customers in every area.”

The Vector HE 19’s use of a fully hermetic scroll compressor and economiser means a 40% increase in refrigeration capacity during pull-down, while reducing the chance of refrigerant escape by half.

Carrier said the system is also 19% more efficient when plugged into the electrical grid on standby, meaning operators will see reduced diesel, maintenance and electricity bills.

Carrier (3A50) will also be exhibiting its engineless refrigeration units for rigids, the undermount Iceland and over-cab Syberia.

Both use Carrier Transicold’s Eco-Drive power module to convert power derived from the vehicle’s engine into electricity to drive the unit.

For light commercial vehicles, Carrier Transicold’s ultra-slim, 12-volt NEOS 100 unit will also be on show. Designed to run entirely on electric power derived from the vehicle’s alternator, the company claims it is an ideal solution for all-electric vehicles.
