Carrier Transicold introduces Vector to manage refrigeration capacity


Carrier Transicold has launched the Vector® HE 17 temperature-controlled trailer unit, offering total adaptability for all caravan applications. The unit provides refrigeration capacity output of over 16 kW and significantly reduces fuel consumption and noise levels.

The Vector® HE 17 temperature-controlled trailer unit is now available, expanding Carrier Transicold’s Vector High Efficiency (HE) lineup. This new unit provides total adaptability for all caravan applications, with refrigeration capacity output of more than 16 kW and a substantial decrease in fuel consumption and noise levels. Carrier Transicold is a division of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), a global pioneer in intelligent climate and energy solutions.

By combining modern inverter technology with the tried-and-true all-electric E-Drive architecture, the Vector HE 17 establishes a new standard for Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and category performance. It provides improved cooling capacity, decreases fuel consumption by up to 30 percent, and lowers noise emissions by 6dB, resulting in a more than 50 percent reduction in sound perception when compared to the Vector 1550.

“The Vector HE 17 positions itself as a versatile solution, the ideal fit for long-haul transportation and urban deliveries, providing our customers access to a more efficient and sustainable trailer solution,” said Victor Calvo, Vice President & General Manager, International Truck & Trailer, Carrier Transicold. 

The system incorporates Carrier Transicold’s E-Drive technology, a key technology of the company and constantly improved since 1999, which has revolutionized the semi-trailer segment by removing the need for the mechanical transmissions found in belt-driven refrigeration systems and converting engine power into electricity to drive the unit. 

The Vector HE 17 also builds upon the proven strengths of the Vector HE 19 unit: a hermetically sealed compressor and an economizer, increasing the machine’s efficiency. This system offers greater efficiency, reduces the risk of refrigerant leaks, and significantly lowers fuel consumption, thanks to the inverter technology, which constantly adapts the compressor speed to meet the cooling demand.

The unit is outfitted with a telematics box, enabling interoperability with Carrier Transicold’s Lynx Fleet digital platform, which integrates refrigeration equipment data with machine learning. It enables clients to make faster, data-driven choices while also increasing the efficacy, efficiency, and sustainability of their supply chains.

The launch of Vector HE 17 is another milestone for Carrier Transicold as it contributes to Carrier’s Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) goal of helping customers avoid more than one gigaton of GHG emissions by 2030.
