Carrier Transicold Equips Jacky Perrenot's First 100% Electric Vehicle From Renault Trucks
Carrier Transicold Equips Jacky Perrenot's First 100% Electric Vehicle From Renault Trucks

The road transport group Jacky Perrenot has selected Carrier Transicold to equip its first 100% electric Renault truck. The vehicle was put into service last month and has been supplying several LIDL supermarkets in Paris and its inner suburbs. Carrier Transicold is part of Carrier Global Corporation, the foremost global provider of healthy, safe, and sustainable building, and cold chain solutions. About Jacky Perrenot For several years now, Jacky Perrenot has been a front-runner in the field of alternative energy and environmentally sustainable transport. This strong environmental commitment resulted in the collaboration with Carrier Transicold. “We turned to Carrier Transicold to help execute LIDL’s energy transition of its vehicle fleet to 20% electric,” explained Denis Bertin, General Manager of Operations and Development, Jacky Perrenot. “To meet this objective, we sought to develop a fully electric vehicle with Renault trucks that produce no CO2 emissions.” ATP FRC Technology and Certification Carrier Transicold equips 95% of its fleet of temperature-controlled vehicles, that must meet ATP FRC certification For the refrigeration unit, Jacky Perrenot turned to its long-standing partner Carrier Transicold, which equips 95% of its fleet of temperature-controlled vehicles, that must meet ATP FRC certification requirements. “Carrier Transicold was the only provider to offer FRC technology,” added Bertin. “This project is a successful collaborative effort to meet our environmental sustainability goals in the service of environmental performance. On the strength of this experience, we are already working on the preparation of a second all-electric vehicle.” Syberia refrigeration unit To meet the all-electric challenge, Carrier Transicold equipped the truck with its Syberia refrigeration unit. The dual-temperature unit is connected to the vehicle's battery using Carrier Transicold’s Eco-Drive™ hydroelectric module, which converts the direct current produced and stored by the truck while driving into the alternating current required to operate the refrigeration unit. This creates a fully self-sustaining virtuous system that produces no direct carbon dioxide (CO2) or particulate emissions. The unit is PIEK certified and emits less than 60 dB(A). Taking road transport forward “Jacky Perrenot has always been a pioneer in the adoption of alternative energies, such as the first natural-gas vehicles we equipped. With this new all-electric project, Jacky Perrenot is once again demonstrating its desire to take road transport forward with the energy transition. We welcome this commitment,” said Didier Urbaniak, General Sales Manager of Carrier Transicold France. Syberia units are one of the solutions offered through Carrier’s Healthy, Safe, Sustainable Cold Chain Program to preserve and protect the supply of food, medicine, and vaccines.

New Carrier Smart Air Purifier With HEPA Filter Allows Homeowners To Monitor Indoor Air Quality From Anywhere
New Carrier Smart Air Purifier With HEPA Filter Allows Homeowners To Monitor Indoor Air Quality From Anywhere

Carrier has launched its new Wi-Fi-enabled smart air purifier, a simple, cost-effective way to improve the quality of indoor air in almost any room of a home or apartment – and the newest offering in Carrier’s Healthy Homes Program. The Carrier smart air purifier continuously samples incoming air, measures levels of pollution and indicates air quality with an easy-to-read LED screen. Additionally, the Carrier Home app allows homeowners to create a healthier home from anywhere. Carrier is a part of Carrier Global Corporation, the foremost global provider of healthy, safe, and sustainable building, and cold chain solutions. Features and certification The new smart air purifier combines three different filtration technologies to create healthier indoor air. First, a pre-filter removes large airborne particles like dust, dirt, and pet dander. Then, an advanced high-efficiency HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particles size 0.3 microns, such as pollen, smoke, and other allergens. Finally, an activated carbon filter removes odors in spaces up to 550 square feet (XL-size). The smart air purifier has been independently tested and certified by the AHAM On Smart Auto Mode, the smart air purifier automatically adjusts between 18 fan speeds based on the air quality level in the room – delivering cleaner air more efficiently. Ideal for bedrooms, family rooms, playrooms, home offices, or any other area of the home needing cleaner air, the smart air purifier has been independently tested and certified by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) to have a high clean air delivery rate (CADR). Carrier Home app The Carrier Home app displays indoor concentration levels of particulate matter down to 2.5 micrometers, which are fine particles that are 30 times smaller than a human hair. In addition, consumers can also monitor their levels of Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs) and control the fan speed of their Carrier smart air purifier. The app also monitors filter life and can direct users to the website when it’s time to purchase a replacement filter. In addition, the Carrier smart air purifier is compatible with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant-enabled devices for voice control. Authority Comment “We’re pleased to announce the launch of our new smart room air purifier and we know it will offer consumers increased peace of mind by providing the ability to monitor their indoor air quality from anywhere,” said Justin Keppy, President, NA Residential & Light Commercial, Carrier. “Indoor air quality has become a priority for many people, and we’re excited to be able to offer this affordable, effective solution as part of our Healthy Homes portfolio. Innovation is in our DNA and we’ll continue developing products that will meet the demand of our customers.”   Addressing IAQ The smart air purifier is just one of the products among a number of solutions offered through Carrier's Healthy Homes Program that can aid in addressing indoor air quality. Other offerings include HVAC system filters with high MERV ratings; UV lights installed inside HVAC equipment; as well as humidifiers and dehumidifiers to help control humidity levels in the home which can help increase comfort and potentially save on utilities.
