Thermo King’s SLXi Hybrid trailer refrigeration announced that it has been awarded a European Transport Award for Sustainability 2018 in the category “vehicle cooling and heating systems.”
The Thermo King SLXi Hybrid, a hybrid refrigeration system for semi-trailer applications, was recognized for its environment-friendly design and technologies.
“We are pleased to be recognized for our climate-friendly solutions for transport refrigeration customers,” said Pauli Johannesen, vice president and general manager for Truck, Trailer and Bus at Thermo King. “The SLXi Hybrid offers customers easier access to restricted, low-emission urban areas that require quiet operation, while lowering their environmental footprint and operating costs at the same time.”
The award, which is intended to encourage companies in the transport and commercial vehicle sector to act sustainably, was handed out during a ceremony in Germany. An independent jury consisting of representatives from business, science, industry associations and media carefully evaluated the applications in 16 different categories based on a point system.
