Powerful alternative for large truck diesel refrigeration systems comes from Thermo King

Designed for larger rigid trucks between 3.5 to 25 tonnes, the new V-1000 is equally or more powerful as its nearest equivalent diesel units and offers large truck operators the benefit of advanced vehicle drive technology – low cost operation, fuel savings, low weight and compact size.

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.

Eneko Fernandez, Product Leader Truck at Thermo King: “Traditionally, companies operating larger rigid trucks have looked at self-powered diesel units. This tradition is about to change. We designed the V-1000 to deliver exceptional performance, compete directly and sometimes outperform the self-powered units. High cooling capacity and high airflow of the V-1000 will protect our customers’ load under the most arduous conditions. And it will do so with a significantly lower environmental impact than the diesel-powered solutions – with no CO2 emissions from the unit and lower noise when in operation.

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.

When compared to an equivalent diesel unit, the Thermo King V-1000 delivers the following performance indicators:

  • Up to 54% less fuel consumption than an equivalent self-powered system, depending on the customer application.
  • Up to 33% lower maintenance costs including both parts and labour thanks to the absence of a diesel engine.
  • The V-1000 weights less than half of an equivalent diesel unit, savings 250 kg without standby and 150 kg with standby option. This means much more carrying capacity for the vehicle.
  • The V-1000 is almost 25% more powerful than an equivalent diesel unit, delivering 10,055W 0/30 degrees Celsius of cooling capacity at high speed position.
  • Low speed capacity comes close to matching diesel units, while the standby capacity is 57% higher.
  • For total load protection, the V-1000 offers airflow of 3,537 m3/hr – 31% higher than diesel equivalent units
  • Heating capacity is 1.3 times higher than the diesel equivalent units.
  • No diesel emissions from the unit, no CO2 emissions from the unit, low noise when in operation.
