Customer Case: Cool Carriers, Asko, Sintef & Thermo King of Norway

Norway’s largest grocery chain ASKO, in cooperation with Thermoking of Norway, has been seeking possibilities to reduce emissions in connection with loading and unloading.

Truck engines are currently kept idling to maintain refrigeration levels. With electricity supplied by a PowerCell PowerPac unit, the main engine can instead be turned off on these occasions. The customer can thereby save around 1,900 liters of diesel per year and per refrigerated truck, thus simultaneously halving CO2 emissions and entirely eliminating nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxides and particulates in sensitive urban environments. A PowerCell PowerPac B2 prototype will initially be placed inside a refrigeration/freezer trailer for testing in Trondheim in the first half of 2016.
