Carrier Transicold extends ‘City Line’ range 16 July 2012

Carrier Transicold has extended its range of refrigeration systems with the launch of the Supra City – a PIEK (Dutch quiet vehicles scheme) compliant version of its Supra for rigid trucks.

The low-noise system operates at 60dB and has been designed for operators wanting to make night-time deliveries around residential neighbourhoods, according to Justin Grace, managing director of Carrier Transicold UK.

"As local authorities throughout Europe seek to address the issues of increasing traffic congestion, air pollution and noise disturbance in busy residential areas, Carrier Transicold provides an answer," comments Grace.

"Being PIEK-compliant means the new Supra City unit reduces the noise generated in low-speed mode to the same level as normal conversation, allowing fleets to make deliveries in urban areas whilst local residents sleep," continues Grace.

"This brings multiple benefits for both the fleet operator and the local community. Night-time deliveries mean trucks spend less time out on the road, leading to reduced daytime congestion, fewer road accidents, lower vehicle emissions and improved fuel consumption."

The Supra City is available in two models – the 950 City, offering a cooling capacity of 8,500W for mono-temperature applications, and the 950 MT City, with a cooling capacity of 5,500W for multi-temperature applications.

Grace explains that the lower noise levels have been achieved thanks to an indirect air inlet and a new cover designed to dampen acoustic waves.
