Thermo-King launches truck-drive fridge for rigids21 July 2021

Thermo King has launched the V-1000, a new range of single and multi-temperature vehicle-powered units designed for larger rigid trucks between 3.5 to 25 tonnes. The new V-1000 is claimed to be 25% more powerful and delivers 33% higher airflow and 67% higher stand-by capacity than the equivalent diesel units.

The V-1000 uses a compressor exclusively developed for Thermo King which, when driven by the truck engine, produces performance previously unattainable in units of this type. This positively impacts the total cost of operation when it comes to fuel consumption, maintenance costs and productivity, making the V-1000 a competitive investment compared to diesel powered unit with equivalent performance.

“Traditionally, companies operating larger rigid trucks have looked at self-powered diesel units. This tradition is about to change,” said Eneko Fernandez, truck product leader at Thermo King.

To ensure voice of the customer was captured during the development of the new solution, Thermo King collaborated with several transport companies across Europe that tested the V-1000 units in real-life operations. One of these companies is Verny, a grocery retail chain in Russia.

For flexible operations, the profile of the Thermo King V-1000 makes it suitable for high cabs, while the units are also compatible with multiple vehicle types including CNG, LNG or Biodiesel. The V-1000 is available in both 12V or 24V options, and can fit trucks that range from 3.5 to 25 tonnes to fit customer’s multiple application needs.
