Carrier And Gray & Adams Develop All-Electric eCool System

THE UK’s first Vector eCool, claimed to be the industry’s only fully autonomous, all-electric refrigerated trailer system, fitted to a new 13.6 metre demonstrator trailer, is now on the road showcasing to Carrier Transicold customers.
Utilising a new energy recovery and storage system, the Vector eCool converts kinetic energy generated by the trailer axle and brakes into electricity, which is then stored in a battery pack powering the refrigeration unit. This loop creates a fully autonomous system that produces no direct carbon dioxide or particulate emissions.
“The Vector eCool reaffirms our commitment to reducing emissions, improving sustainability and increasing efficiency across the refrigerated transport sector,” said Scott Dargan, managing director UK and Northern Europe at Carrier Transicold. “This represents a giant step forward for trailer refrigeration, and we are delighted to be working together with Gray & Adams on the roll-out in the UK.”
