More Powerful ThermoLite™ Solar Panels from Thermo King for Greater Sustainable Power Management
Brussels, June 7, 2018 - Thermo King®, a leader in transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, expands its ThermoLite™ solar panels portfolio with a more powerful, 110W model designed to provide a sustainable power management solution for reefer units while reducing their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
In low light, Thermo King’s new solar panels collect energy to keep the refrigeration unit’s battery fully charged. This eliminates the need to use the engine to charge the battery and reduces fuel consumption by up to 23 percent and CO2 emissions by 560kg. Solar panels are especially ideal for customers who have sustainability goals.
“The time is right for fleet owners to invest in renewable technologies that are innovative, reliable and sustainable,” said Gary Mullins, aftermarket product manager at Thermo King. “These new, more powerful solar panels give our customers a source of sustainable power on the road which increases operational efficiency, reducing their environmental footprint and favorable contributing to sustainability goals.”
ThermoLite solar panels ensure that the refrigeration unit battery remains continuously charged. This contributes to continuous operation of the reefer systems. Paired with telematics, it allows transport companies to be in constant contact with their trailers. Fleet managers can access critical unit data at any time – off-road or safely during the journey -- to ensure that the load is protected at all times and the unit is running efficiently.
