Fowler Welch opts for fridge-freezer from Carrier in latest trailer order 03 June 2020

Food distribution company Fowler Welch has taken delivery of 45 new Schmitz Cargobull semitrailers mounted with Carrier Transicold Vector HE 19 MT refrigeration units.

The Lincolnshire-based firm, which offers ambient and temperature-controlled transport for food suppliers and retailers, chose the multi-temperature units after fuel benchmarking tests conducted during the initial field trial programme. They showed that the new design could help reduce fuel consumption, cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and improve overall fleet efficiency.

“Our experience trialling the latest generation Vector HE 19 MT unit has been incredibly positive; we’re very excited for what we see as a major step forward in refrigerated trailer technology,” said Maurizio Romano, head of fleet strategy, Fowler Welch. “We have also found that the Carrier units truly deliver from a reliability and temperature integrity perspective. They were the clear choice for such a major order, especially when considering our ongoing environmental strategy.”

The Vector HE 19 MT unit features Carrier Transicold’s patented E-Drive all-electric technology, which has now been combined with an all-new multi-speed engine design that is said to considerably cut fuel consumption. A fully hermetic scroll compressor and economiser also helps deliver a significant increase in refrigeration capacity during pull-down, while reducing the chance of refrigerant and CO2 escape.
