Green docking stations for chillers in TIR vehicles

Library of Challenges

Short description: More than 2000 trucks a day (including refrigerated trucks) are handled at the port. To maintain the temperature while waiting for unloading, it is necessary to work an internal combustion engine(CO2).The solution to this problem would be to create an electric charging station during a standstill.

Market potential: Solution dedicated to road carriers. Approx. 10% of road freight transport in the EU is refrigerated. Docking stations could be installed in TIR car parks.

Timing: The demand is already there,the refrigerated cargo market is growing at a rate of 4% /year. So far, no work has been undertaken on a solution.Implementation should be preceded by a trial period(1year).

Desired result: Reduction of pollutant emissions.Sustainable develop.-reducing the nuisance of heavy goods vehicles for residents(noise,CO2). Solution desirable in the context of the implemented `Mobility Package`. Develop.of environmentally friendly sea transport in the port of the ro-ro and container segments.

Information on challenge owner: Mid-Cap (250-3,000 staff).

Market presence of challenge owner: Active in one country.

Keywords: Electrical supply system; Energy supply system; Charging system; Road transport; Applications software
