The 'New Cool' Nominated
Twan Heetkamp initiated the development of a new sustainable type of refrigerated trailer: the New Cool. This trailer stores solar and brake energy in a battery pack and uses it for the cooling system. The project started in 2010 and has now led to the first fully functional prototype. Within the project, TMC employeneurs provided technical knowledge and project management.
The trailer has been added to the fleet of ‘Post Kogeko’ in its services for Albert Heijn supermarkets.
In addition the project is nominated for the Herman Wijffels Prize. This is a competition organized by the Rabobank to award the best sustainable innovation. Part of this prize is public and everybody is invited to vote.
