Hultsteins Strengthens Management Team in Ireland
Hultsteins, a leading Swedish and UK manufacturer of sustainable refrigeration equipment, is pleased to announce a strategic appointment aimed at introducing the company's carbon-cutting Ecogen system to temperature-controlled operators in Ireland.

Darryl Morgan, former director of the well-established refrigerated transport company Morgan Transport, joins Hultsteins with over 20 years of transport industry experience across multiple sectors. His extensive knowledge of trucks and refrigerated trailers, combined with his technical and operational expertise in IT, compliance, and European freight management, makes him a valuable addition to the Hultsteins team.

“I am delighted to be part of the market development of this innovative alternative to diesel-powered refrigeration,” said Darryl. “I was impressed with the Ecogen system from the moment I was first introduced to it. I have spent considerable time exploring the product in detail, understanding its environmental benefits, return on investment, and maintenance costs. Ecogen offers the most cost-effective and sustainable solution in the marketplace. It can be connected to any Scania, Volvo, or Renault tractors right now. Fit one Ecogen2 to your tractor and it converts every trailer it couples to into an electric fridge.”

The Ecogen system runs the existing trailer fridge on electrical power during transit, significantly reducing environmental impact. Hultsteins reports that the system reduces carbon emissions by around 80% to 90%, particulate matter (DPM) by over 98%, and NOx emissions in comparison to conventional diesel engines. Additionally, Ecogen uses up to 90% less fuel compared to a conventional transport refrigeration unit (TRU), key attributes driving strong demand.

According to Hultsteins UK Managing Director Graham Usher, demand for Ecogen is increasing year on year, with 2024 set to be the busiest year yet. “I’m thrilled that Darryl is joining the Hultsteins team to bring Ecogen’s low-cost sustainable refrigeration to operators in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We are really looking forward to working with him.”
