Hapag-Lloyd to add 950 Thermo King gensets

Clip-on SG-5000 generator sets with real-time monitoring and ‘lifetime CARB compliance’ designed to power any refrigerated ISO container.

Thermo King will supply 950 of its clip-on SG-5000 generator sets to global container shipper Hapag-Lloyd.

The transport refrigeration unit (TRU) manufacturer says its SG-5000 can power all ISO reefers on the market, ensuring “complete temperature control and protection” of refrigerated cargoes. Hapag-Lloyd is expected to deploy its new fleet of SG-5000 generator sets in its intermodal operations throughout North America.

“Thermo King’s generator sets deliver a mix of performance, connectivity, low running costs, and no-compromise load protection we were looking for,” said Andrea Schoening, senior director for container steering at Hapag-Lloyd. “Their compliance with the strictest emissions requirements is also aligned with our sustainability strategy to implement technology that reduces carbon emissions, fuel, and energy consumption.”

Designed and manufactured for the North American market, the SG-5000 gensets’ engine is lifetime compliant with California Air Resource Board (CARB) requirements, protecting customers’ investments and removing the need for retrofit or replacement, the company said. As with CARB regulations, the SG-5000 also enables lifetime compliance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 standards for off-highway diesel engines.

“We are committed to supply our customers with the most innovative product portfolio for generator sets, and to be a trusted partner through the product’s lifecycle,” said Bruno Fusciani, commercial leader for Thermo King Marine. “In the SG-5000, we incorporated proven and reliable technology with a variety of innovations and enhanced connectivity. We’re sure the lifetime CARB compliance of the product will help Hapag-Lloyd to focus on making the most of current and future operations with the peace of mind they need.”

The modular design of SG-5000 clip-on units allows it to power any reefer, including the SuperFreezer, maximizing operational efficiency and helping lower lifetime operational costs, Thermo King maintained. Additionally, the SG-5000 features an advanced controller that combines easy-to-use navigation with advanced diagnostics, offering intelligence, control, and telematics capabilities including:

  • Automated pre-trip testing
  • Advanced self-check features, including alarms
  • Auto-restart
  • Data logging of events, alarms, and messages
  • Real-time monitoring and management of position, fuel, engine hours and running parameters on rail, by road or at terminal
