Steeped in tradition, Milan’s oldest and finest pastry shops are considered a benchmark for the quality of its fresh patisserie and signature chocolates. Matching tradition and innovation, those shops decided to join the “zero emission” philosophy and recently ordered, for its home delivery service in downtown Milan, a new Nissan e-NV200 40 kWh electric van together with a Coldtainer F0720/NDN (720-liter capacity, Secop BD80F compressor) autonomous refrigerated container.
All Coldtainer van boxes from Euroengel are equipped with Secop compressors. BD compressors make it easy for retailers to comply with existing food safety regulations, save money, and gain flexibility. Especially suited for use in mobile refrigeration applications, Secop BD compressors make it possible to equip a vehicle with transportable refrigerators and freezers, while maintaining storage temperature during transport. With capacities of up to 1,000 liters for refrigerators and 500 liters for freezers, these compressors deliver outstanding temperature control that always maintains the temperature in the box.
A comparison study by the University of Brescia, proves the advantages in terms of CO2 reduction (-40%) and total cost of ownership (up to -50%) between a Coldtainer and a traditional solution.
Università degli Studi di Brescia – Evaluation of COLDTAINER’s economic and environmental benefits
An expensive, impractical, especially adapted refrigerated van is no longer the only option on the market. The most economical and efficient solution for small-scale transport is to use a mobile refrigeration unit that easily fits into cars and vans. Retailers can keep the cold chain unbroken during transportation, without having to invest in a dedicated refrigerated van. The F0720 van box is a 720-liter 12 Volt refrigerated container, with an integrated battery for more than 12 hours of autonomous operation. The internal battery of the F0720 is recharged overnight when recharging the traction batteries of the van. With the F0720 AuO, the quality and freshness of all sorts of pastries is guaranteed also during transport, with zero impact on environment.
