Hultsteins appoints two service providers for Ireland

Hulsteins, the Swedish/UK transport refrigeration manufacturer, has appointed two new service providers for Ireland.

Mulvey Refrigeration Technology in Dublin and Fleet Maintenance in Armagh will provide a full aftermarket service for Hultsteins’ ‘diesel-free’ systems in Ireland.

Hultsteins offers two main innovations, aimed at enabling operators to save both carbon and fuel by providing an alternative to traditional, diesel-powered transport refrigeration units (TRUs): Ecofridge hydraulic and electric single and multi temp units for rigid truck applications and Ecogen hydraulic systems which, powered by the tractor’s PTO, drive any conventional fridge system and cut out the requirement for the diesel engine.

Ecogen generates the 400-volt power needed to run a TRU and is a bolt-on, bolt-off solution with a life expectancy of over 10 years. It comes in two models: the Ecogen Lowline is sited between the axles on rigid-bodied trucks and two-axle tractors, while the Ecogen Slimline fits behind the cab and is ideal for gas-powered and 6×2 tractors where chassis space is at more of a premium.

Graham Usher, Hultsteins sales and marketing in the UK and Ireland says: “In the refrigerated transport sector, perhaps more than any other, professional back up is vital to ensure customers’ goods arrive in perfect condition, every time.

“This is particularly important for us because our systems are new to Ireland and as such, we are delighted to have the reliable support of these two long-established service providers.”
