Volkswagen launches Crafter Luton conversion

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched a new refrigeration conversion for its Crafter Luton van, to be built by The Cold Consortium.

The new conversion is based on the existing ‘Engineered To Go’ Crafter Luton by Ingimex and adds refrigeration capability to help with the growing demand for chilled commercial vehicles.

The load space of the refrigerated Crafter Luton can be chilled to 0°C with a temperature-controlled multi-strip curtain fitted to the rear shutter.

Pressure-bonded insulation panels offer maximum strength while reducing weight, and the bulkhead panel is strengthened to carry the refrigeration system evaporator. Motion-activated infrared (PIR) sensor lighting replaces the standard load bay lighting.

The Cold Consortium, based in York, has specialised in converting vans to refrigerated chillers, fridges and freezers for more than 20 years.

It is a Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles recognised partner, having undergone a rigorous certification process to meet the stringent quality and technical criteria required by the scheme.
