BOC’s FROSTCRUISE commercially launched


BOC is launching its innovative, new eco-friendly FROSTCRUISE® truck and trailer refrigeration system– following years of successful trails.

Providing a significantly more environmentally friendly, efficient and reliable cryogenic alternative to diesel-powered mechanical refrigeration, the FROSTCRUISE system was developed by BOC and its parent, The Linde Group. The environmental benefits of FROSTCRUISE include: zero operating carbon footprint and zero emissions (particulate, NOx and CO2) at the point of delivery and a 64% reduction in total carbon footprint compared to an equivalent diesel-mechanical refrigeration system.

Awarded the Noise Abatement Society’s quiet delivery certificate Piek award, FROSTCRUISE has near silent operation at 56 dB. This means that the truck can be used for deliveries 24/7, even in urban areas where laws often limit noise to 60–65 dB between the hours of 10pm and 6am – a level that diesel-operated refrigeration systems are unable to reach without extensive acoustic insulation packages.

FROSTCRUISE is effectively an on demand refrigeration system, using liquid nitrogen (LIN) at -196°C to indirectly chill the air in the truck compartment using a heat exchanger, delivering exceptionally fast temperature cool-down and ensuring accurate temperature control for the highest levels of food quality and safety.
