Traditionally, companies operating larger rigid trucks look at self-powered diesel units. This tradition is about to change. The all-new V-1000 unit from Thermo King easily matches the performance of the leading diesel offerings while delivering the low cost, low weight and compact size of a vehicle-powered unit. If you think that’s too good to be true, prepare to be surprised.
The all-new V-1000 is uniquely positioned to satisfy the needs of large truck operators with the benefits of advanced vehicle drive technology. The V-1000 unit easily matches the performance of the leading diesel offerings while delivering the low cost, low weight and compact size of a vehicle-powered unit.
Transport solutions not only need to do the job, but do it in a way that minimises environmental impact. The V-1000 is an exceptionally “low-touch” performer, leaving diesel units out of sight when it comes to protecting the world we live in.
The V-1000 positively impacts Total Cost of Operation (TCO). Fuel consumption, the principal cost of operating a refrigeration unit, is up to 54% less than an equivalent self-powered system. Maintenance costs including both parts and labour are cut by up to 33% thanks to the absence of a diesel engine.
Savings and productivity while vital are meaningless if there are any doubts about load protection. The V-1000 features exceptional performance which is why it can compete directly with self-powered units and in many cases, even outperform them.
You want units in your fleet that pull their weight when it comes to the key measure of productivity. The V-1000 is an exceptional performer when compared with an equivalent diesel unit:
- Weight is less than half of an equivalent unit, giving savings of 250 kg without standby and 150 kg with standby. This means much more carrying capacity for the vehicle and more revenue for your operation.
- Flexibility is exceptional. The V-1000 comes in single or various multi-temperature configurations. Its compact profile make it ideal for high cabs and it’s equally at home with multiple vehicle types including CNG, LNG or Biodiesel. Available in both 12 V or 24 V making it your perfect fit for trucks that range all the way from 3.5 Tn to 25 Tn depending on your application needs.
