Carrier Transicold is introducing three new transport refrigeration units in the United Kingdom and Ireland that it says deliver operational and environmental benefits for truck, trailer and light commercial vehicle fleets.

The new models include the first PIEK-certified version of its flagship Vector HE 19 (High Efficiency) trailer unit, the Xarios 8 refrigeration system for the larger rigid truck market, and the Neos HE 100 S for light commercial vehicles.

The PIEK-certified Vector HE 19 now operates below 60 decibels, which is the equivalent of normal conversation, in either a mono or multi-temperature configuration, the company said.

“Our new PIEK-compliant Vector HE 19 takes quiet running to a new level, being perfect for fleets making frequent nighttime deliveries to stores in residential areas,” said Scott Dargan, Carrier Transicold’s managing director for Northern Europe.

Carrier Transicold says it met strict PIEK levels while packaging the new system within the regular Vector HE 19 chassis. The previous generation PIEK-certified Vector 1950 City had its diesel engine housed in an insulated cabinet underneath the trailer.

Available now, the new PIEK-certified Vector HE 19 is an addition to the range, offering operators the same 10% reduction in weight, 19% reduction in energy consumption and up to 30% reduction in fuel consumption vs. the previous generation Vector 1950.

The Xarios 8 unit has improved efficiency and a third more cooling capacity compared to the current Xarios 600, along with a low refrigerant charge, a new evaporator ventilation motor and brushless condenser ventilation system to reduce wear on parts, and lower maintenance costs. Additionally, its shell is manufactured by injection molding, reducing manufacturing steps and improving the build process, the company maintained.

“The new Xarios 8 fits perfectly between the current Xarios 600 and our engineless ICELAND system, enabling us to offer a high capacity direct-drive system which is ideal for larger trucks used in urban distribution,” Dargan said.

The electrically driven Neos HE 100 S system optimizes energy consumption while maintaining a cooling capacity and look almost equivalent to the standard Neos 100 S system, Carrier Transicold said. The unit features new technology, enabling a 35% reduction in energy consumption to 58 amps. It also offers precise temperature control of an insulated load space, varying in size from 2-6 cubic meters.
