Thermo King to Address Sustainable Passenger Mobility Technologies at Busworld Europe 2017

The Thermo King stand will feature proven heat pump technology - the most efficient way of achieving heating and cooling performances in hybrid and electric buses.

–Thermo King®, a manufacturer of transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, will be at the Busworld Europe 2017 show on October 20 – 25 in Kortrijk, Belgium. At the booth 212 in Hall 2, Thermo King will demonstrate sustainability, and customer-driven heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) solutions designed with a specific focus on hybrid and electric buses to address the increasing importance of sustainable transportation in Europe.

“Municipalities in Europe feel the need for more sustainable passenger transport to address the rapidly increasing traffic congestion, air pollution and upcoming regulations,” said Urszula von Kreijfelt, commercial director for Bus Transport Solution for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Thermo King. “Heat pumps have proven to be the technology that helps reduce energy consumption of the electric buses and thus increase their range while still guaranteeing full climate comfort for passengers,”

Thermo King provides customers with customized solutions that meet their needs and keep up with the trends. At the show, Thermo King will showcase the Athenia™ MkII Electric Heat Pump range that already provides comfort cooling and heating to hundreds of electric buses across Europe. The Thermo King Bus leadership will be available at the stand to share the real life examples of this proven and sustainable technology.

Thermo King will also address how we work with the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and bodybuilders by providing them with customized solutions. The units, controls and communication protocols can be adapted to meet their specific requirements and applications.
