Carrier Transicold’s 700,000th Refer Unit

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Carrier Transicold’s Container Products Group recently achieved production of its 700,000th container refrigeration unit.

Carrier Transicold is a part of Carrier Corp., a business unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX). Since shipping its first container refrigeration unit in 1968, Carrier has provided refrigeration units to nearly every shipping line, container-leasing company and major global produce shipper in the world.

Maersk Line, was the recipient of the 700,000th unit, which was part of a substantial order of Carrier’s new PrimeLine units, each equipped with QUEST (Quality and Energy Efficiency in Storage and Transport) power-saving mode.

Maersk Line plans to have its entire fleet, including its previously acquired Carrier ThinLine and EliteLine units, equipped with QUEST mode by the end of 2009. With a fleet numbering more than 470 container vessels and more than 1.9 million containers, of which approximately 180,000 are refrigerated, Maersk Line’s scale means that any environmental initiatives undertaken have potential for a huge impact.

Carrier Transicold has provided Maersk with more than 100,000 refrigeration units since 1987.
