The New Cool

The New Cool is a reefer that takes his energy from a special axle and through an external cable. When the reefer slows down, the special Valx axle generates energy. The more the reefer slows down, the more energy is generated. The energy is stored in a battery pack. The Carrier Vector takes his energy from the battery pack to cool the reefer.

The technique of the New Cool can be build on every reefer brand and the reefers van be provided with all the specifications that the customer has on his conventional reefer.

Between 2014 and 2017 there was a testing fase with 22 reefers on the road in the Netherlands. In 2019 we added 25 New Cool reefers to the market and from Q3 2020 we are ready for serial production.

How does it work?

Benefits of The New Cool

  • The reefer has a very silent cooling system. The noise is way below PIEK standard.
  • No diesel consumption, therefore no emission of CO2 and particulate matter.
  • Daily saving of 30 litres of diesel!
  • No diesel engine, therefore less maintenance.
  • No diesel tank, therefore no diesel theft.
  • Reefer is independent of the tractor. Keeps cooling without being connected.
  • Less pressure on the rear axle of the tractor because the weight of the diesel engine doesn’t press on it.

With a normal use, The New Cool is not more expensive than a conventional trailer.

“Transport must halve CO2 emissions”, “Germans advocate CO2 standards”, “Government doesn’t think modern diesels are clean enough”, “EU: reducing truck emissions by 15%”, “Transport sector: in 2025, only electric in the city center”.

These are all headlines in the news anno 2018.

In the near future, there are more and more cities that have their own rules for allowing freight traffic in the inner city. As a result, many companies have to invest in new trailers in order to comply with the legislation. Because the rules differ per city and country, it is almost impossible to comply with the rules for every city and country. The New Cool trailer is THE solution to enter every city. The trailer has no emissions at all because there is no diesel engine, diesel tank and exhaust are present and it is also much quieter as a conventional trailer.

About THT

THT New Cool is a company that was founded by Twan Heetkamp. In 2005, Twan Heetkamp Trailers (THT) was established in collaboration with Per Ørnstrand of PNO. This company was sold in 2016, with the exception of the Electro trailer (New Cool). Here Twan went along with the name THT New Cool BV.

In 2007 Twan came up with the idea of The New Cool and in 2010 the idea was developed with the following partners: TMC (research and technical advice), TRTA (research), TRS / Carrier (cooling system), Valx (special axle) and TPTS (modifications to the reefer)

THT New Cool is a company that rents out refrigerated trailers that function fully electrically. There is therefore no diesel tank and exhaust present on these trailers. As a result, there is no CO2 emission and emissions of particulate matter.

The New Cool has been made possible by LimburgMakers, Stimulus and RVO.
