Dutch food supplier Huuskes currently has a vehicle that cools its cargo with BoTemp's sustainable and flexible cooling system; The Cold Battery. BoTemp supplies rechargeable cold storage systems, which are filled with a non-toxic and biodegradable gel called PCM.
(Phase Change Material) Together with their partners BOM Engineering, Pool Cold Technology, Re/Gent and Delta Technics, they developed this Cold Battery with a variable adjustable temperature control.
Harrie Reink, logistics manager at Huuskes is particularly excited because of the flexibility and low maintenance and repair costs. Also, he has finally found a solution for inner city deliveries where regulation is becoming increasingly severe. Harrie: "BoTemp's systems are silent and never produce CO2 emissions. The cooling system will remain cold even when the vehicle's engine is turned off."
Harrie has enough capacity for its 18-tonne two-compartment vehicles to ensure the desired temperature throughout the day. Frozen products must be delivered at a temperature of -18°C, fresh products must remain below 3°C.
The Cold Battery with variable adjustable temperature control, combined with an On Board Charger, provides the flexibility to change the temperature in each compartment. And because the Charger is on board, the cooling unit can always be charged, wherever the vehicle is located.
