Refrigeration powered by free and sustainable energy
Recover lost energy to power your refrigeration unit
A lot of energy is lost when your vehicles are on the road. That energy can be harvested and used to keep your load at optimum temperature. Thermo King's AxlePower technology redresses the balance: turning lost energy into a power source for trailer refrigeration. Developed in partnership with BPW, the system benefits from decades of experience in refrigerated transport.
AxlePower integrates seamlessly into your existing fleet and delivers low-noise, high-powered performance in both hybrid and fully electric powered units.
The system’s electric operation results in lower fuel consumption and less maintenance costs. On top of this, the system also heightens your fleet’s flexibility, unlocking late-night and last-mile deliveries in zero-emission city districts. All of this makes AxlePower not only a flexible power source for your fleet but also affordable and sustainable. Combined with smart power management capabilities, your drivers can take on any journey with complete confidence.
Power your refrigeration unit from the road
Designed to harvest energy from a trailer’s braking and movement, AxlePower enables you to turn off the unit’s engine on almost every journey. During routine operation, power is captured and stored in the AxlePower Energ-e Pack for use whenever it is needed. A process that removes the unit’s CO² emissions, while also reducing the fuel needed to power the transport refrigeration unit.
or even all-electric
That is the AxlePower advantage
Access the inner cities
The ability to turn off the unit’s engine means your vehicle’s CO² emissions are reduced significantly. This allows your fleet to make deliveries in the Low and Zero Emission Zones of the city centre and prepares you better for future regulations.
With the ability to recover energy that would otherwise be dissipated during descent or deceleration phases, AxlePower makes it possible to save potentially thousands of litres of fuel per unit per year.
Reduce your running costs
Recovering the energy generated by braking helps ensure the brake pads of both the tractor and trailer wear at a slower pace.
This also means longer service intervals for your unit with engine usage greatly reduced.
Avoid the sustainability premium
Able to operate with any tractor, AxlePower makes your existing refrigerated trailer fleet compatible with LEZ and ULEZ – thereby maximizing your operational flexibility.
Preserve the highest possible resale value
With full operational flexibility, and the ability to reduce wear and tear on your unit’s engine, AxlePower helps to significantly extend the operational lifetime of your existing refrigerated trailer fleet.
