Thermo King has added the B-100 30 refrigeration unit for vans and small delivery trucks to its B-Series range of zero-emission electric units, which are powered directly from the vehicle battery.

They are compatible with vehicles equipped with original air-conditioning system, requiring no drive kit or vehicle modification.

The new B-100 30 unit adds an electric heating option. Heating capacity is independent from vehicle engine and ambient temperature.

“The new B-100 30 and the entire all-electric B-Series units are a perfect fit for customers looking for high-performance refrigeration units for their “last mile” applications such as home deliveries or the transport of pharmaceutical products,” said Eneko Fernandez, product management leader at Thermo King.

“Having no diesel engine, the units gives transporters the flexibility of inner-city, low-emission zone operations and contributes to the low total cost of ownership.”
