Sunswap Achieves ATP Certification
In a step forward for sustainable refrigerated transport, Sunswap Endurance has achieved ATP certification. This milestone validates the performance and reliability of technology and opens new opportunities for customers in the international cold chain logistics industry.

ATP is an international standard for the transport of perishable goods. It ensures that vehicles and equipment used for carrying food and other temperature-sensitive products across borders meet strict requirements for maintaining proper conditions.

For companies involved in international refrigerated transport, having ATP-certified equipment is a necessity, helping to avoid delays and spoiled cargo.

To achieve ATP certification, Sunswap Endurance underwent extensive testing at Cambridge Refrigeration Technology (CRT), an approved facility in the UK. This rigorous process included measuring the refrigeration capacity at different setpoints (-20°C, -10°C, 0°C) in 30°C ambient conditions to validate performance in demanding summer environments. Pull-down tests also confirmed the units can bring the trailer temperature down to -25°C within specified time limits, even in high outside temperatures.

The successful outcome shows that Sunswap Endurance meets and exceeds the performance requirements for international refrigerated transport. 

While ATP certification is not currently a requirement in the UK, it provides operators extra assurance that Sunswap’s technology will reliably maintain product quality and safety, even in extreme temperatures that can sideline traditional refrigeration units.

“Further evidence that the Sunswap Endurance is operationally a like-for-like alternative to diesel-powered units. For operators, this means you don’t need to choose between going green and getting the job done. With Sunswap’s ATP-certified transport refrigeration units, you can reduce your carbon footprint and meet your sustainability goals without compromising on the reliability and effectiveness of your cold chain operations”, commented Alastair Gough, Head of Business Development at Sunswap.
