TAIWAN – SINGAPORE – A Carrier Transicold customer since 2002, Evergreen Line, the Taoyuan City headquartered container carrier, has opted to increase its fleet of reefers with an order for 3,000 Carrier Transicold PrimeLINE® units to cool replacement boxes ordered by the Taiwanese line which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Coincidentally it is half a century since Carrier Transicold invented the, now ubiquitous, front-wall refrigeration unit design which controls reefer units and trailers. The majority of the newly ordered units are being installed on 40 foot high-cube containers with the balance mounted on 20-foot containers.

Evergreen Line says it values Carrier Transicold’s customer support, particularly in terms of service training. Instructors periodically provide refrigeration unit operation and repair programs in connection with other specialised training. This is provided for terminal technicians and ship crews at the Evergreen Seafarer Training Centre in Taiwan near Taipei. Andrew See, general manager, Global Container Refrigeration, Greater China, Carrier Transicold, commented:

”These are great milestones for both companies, and we’re delighted that Evergreen Line places its trust and confidence in Carrier Transicold and our popular PrimeLINE unit, a highly advanced model of our original front-wall unit and one that has led the industry in sales for the last 10 years. Evergreen’s units feature our LED control-display option, which the shipping line considers advantageous for ship crew members visually monitoring stacked containers on board a vessel.

”With its digital scroll compressor, the PrimeLINE unit has a reputation for energy efficiency and a value proposition that includes rapid pull-down, tight temperature control, high air-flow performance and excellent cost of ownership.”
