Dearman, the global technology company delivering zero emission cold and power, demonstrated its groundbreaking refrigerated trailer to an audience of 250,000 for the 67th IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover, Germany.
The Dearman Hubbard Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU) was demonstrated to one of Europe’s largest retailers, fleet managers and operators in the Open Air Section at the Hannover Fairground, the largest exhibition ground in the world.
The zero-emission, low carbon, high performance, quiet and cost-effective Dearman Hubbard TRU will enable fleet managers and operators to prepare for the toughest emission regulations while also maintaining efficiency and profitability.
The trailer has been used on the road by some of Europe’s largest retailers including M&S, Sainsbury’s and Unilever.
Nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from a diesel TRU are six times higher than those of a Euro VI truck propulsion engine, and particulate matter emissions are 29 times higher. The Dearman TRU eliminates both emissions and has the potential to eliminate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 96%.
Jan De Waard, Dearman’s Vice-President for European Sales, said, “The IAA Show was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the Dearman Hubbard refrigeration unit to some of the world’s largest cold chain fleet operators. We successfully demonstrated how zero emission refrigeration can be achieved efficiently and still be cost effective.”
“With toughening regulation across Europe to tackle diesel emissions, Dearman stands ready as a solution to ensure fleet operators are compliant,” Waard affirmed.
