Taiwanese shipping company Evergreen Marine Corp. has ordered 1,800 Star Cool reefers from Maersk Container Industry (MCI) for its growing reefer operations.
Scheduled for delivery during the 2nd quarter of 2020, reefer containers Star Cool Integrated combine the refrigerated MCI Box and the Star Cool refrigeration machine, featuring innovative technologies such as the controlled atmosphere.
Star Cool CA enables careful monitoring and control of the amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide inside a reefer, enabling perishable produce to be transported further and over a longer time period.
Prior to placing the order, Evergreen spent most of 2019 running live trials across their global network involving all relevant reefer machines.
Maersk Container Industry said that the results of these extensive tests confirmed that Star Cool achieved the lowest energy consumption of all brands, the fastest temperature pulldown, and seamless customer service.
“Evergreen has spent over 50 years building a comprehensive shipping network that meets the needs of our customers, and which has help us achieve the scale of business we have today. When we began the process of selecting a new brand for our reefer fleet, we were looking for the ability to offer our customers the most reliable service as well as the documented lowest carbon footprint, which made Star Cool a clear choice,” the company commented.
