Vector City – Short Listed at Motor Transport Awards

10 May 2008

The award winning low noise version of the Vector trailer refrigeration system has now been short listed for the Innovation Award at this years Motor Transport Awards . Still as powerful as its original versions, but ever more efficient, allowing customers to address their needs for low cost of ownership and respect of the cold chain whilst also respecting the environment.

From its first introduction back in 1999, the Vector range of trailer refrigeration systems from Carrier Transicold have consistently made headlines by breaking new ground in terms of market leading innovation, performance and environmental responsibility. The extra low noise (XLN) development of the standard Vector 1850 now known as Vector City was specifically designed to comply with Dutch regulations for noise levels – Piek – which limits the level of permitted noise at various time bands during the working day, and most importantly during the night. Vector 1850 City didn’t just meet the regulatory Piek levels. It re-wrote the record book. Vector 1850 City achieved an amazing 59.5dB, a significantly reduced level previously never reached by any manufacturer of transport refrigeration systems.

The Motor Transport Innovation Award looks for a person or a team that has come up with a truly great idea and made it work. It could be a new way of working, or new design for a piece of equipment or a new technical solution to a industry problem. It has to be new, it has to be original and entries can be from transport companies or industry suppliers.

This year’s awards take place on the 2nd July at the Grosvenor House, London.
