Evergreen Line Updating Container Operations
Evergreen Line, is enhancing its operations with 3,000 containers refrigerated by Carrier Transicold PrimeLINE units, chosen for their refrigeration performance and power efficiency. Carrier Transicold is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
“With its digital scroll compressor, the PrimeLINE unit has a reputation for energy efficiency and a value proposition that includes rapid pull-down, tight temperature control, high air-flow performance and excellent cost of ownership,” said Andrew See, general manager for global container refrigeration, Greater China, at Carrier Transicold. “Evergreen’s PrimeLINE units feature our LED control-display option, which the shipping line considers advantageous for ship crew members visually monitoring stacked containers onboard a vessel.”
The majority of Evergreen Line’s PrimeLINE units are being installed on 40-foot high-cube containers with the balance mounted on 20-foot containers, all acquired for replacement.
A Carrier Transicold customer since 2002, Evergreen Line values Carrier Transicold’s customer support, particularly in terms of service training. For example, Carrier Transicold instructors periodically provide refrigeration unit operation and repair programs in connection with other specialized training. This is provided for terminal technicians and ship crews at the Evergreen Seafarer Training Center in Taiwan near Taipei.
Founded in 1968, Evergreen celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, just as Carrier Transicold commemorates the 50th anniversary of its invention of the front-wall refrigeration unit design.
“These are great milestones for both companies, and we’re delighted that Evergreen Line places its trust and confidence in Carrier Transicold and our popular PrimeLINE unit, a highly advanced model of our original front-wall unit and one that has led the industry in sales for the last 10 years,” See said.
