NewCold commissioned several 100% electric THT New Cool refrigerated trailers which means no more diesel cooling engine, no CO2 emissions, no particulate emissions and silent operation.

One of the main components of this 100% electric refrigerated trailer is an energy axle. When the trailer slows down, energy is generated by the axle and this energy is stored in an aluminium encased battery pack. This energy is then transferred to the electrical cooling unit to power the refrigerated trailer.
The positive environmental impacts are:
