New reefers with telematics for ACL

Carrier Transicold has announced that Atlantic Container Line (ACL) is acquiring 150 new containers equipped with Carrier Transicold PrimeLINE refrigeration units featuring its Lynx Fleet digital solution.


ACL, which is part of the Grimaldi Group, is adding the new 40-foot, high-cube refrigerated containers for fleet expansion. The units will be placed into service on trade routes between western Europe and the United States, where ACL deploys its fleet of relatively new G4 ConRo vessels.


“With its energy-efficient performance, the PrimeLINE refrigeration unit is a perfect complement for our fleet, which includes some of the world’s largest, most fuel efficient and environmentally responsible roll-on/roll-off containerships,” said Maurizio Di Paolo, Corporate Liner Equipment Department Manager, Grimaldi Group.


“The Lynx Fleet solution will bring numerous benefits to our fleet, and the ability to monitor cargo temperatures is only the beginning,” Di Paolo added. “We are especially looking forward to the advantages that come with refrigeration unit health analytics and the subsequent efficiencies for our maintenance and repair operations.”


Carrier is having good success with its Lynx fleet solution, which was recently selected by SeaCube for 2,000 new reefers for its leasing fleet. Carrier said “Key differentiators” for its telematics offering include: integrated telematics and cloud-based architecture, a data management platform that provides enhanced visibility on the health and status of the reefer containers themselves, and accessibility from any connected device.


On the machinery side, the new reefers feature Carrier’s PrimeLINE machinery and its Micro-Link 5 controller. Carrier said the Micro-Link 5 is “the first and only container refrigeration unit controller with wireless communication capability, providing greater memory, processing power and connectivity compared to Carrier Transicold’s standard offering”.


“We are pleased to support ACL’s modern fleet with our latest container refrigeration technology, which is designed to improve fleet efficiencies and help control operating costs,” said Kay Henze, Account Manager, Carrier Transicold.
