Thermo King has provided solar panels to European Containers to help reduce CO2 emissions in its fleet.

Thermo King has installed solar panels on 76 of ECS’s refrigerated trailers, to create a more sustainable network by limiting carbon consumption.

Samer Hawat, Area Sales and Service Manager Belgium and Luxembourg at Thermo King said: “Equipped with solar panels, ECS’ refrigeration units will have a source of sustainable power on the road, which will increase the company’s operational efficiency, reduce their environmental footprint and contribute to the strategic sustainability goals.”

Jonas Van Den Broucke, technical fleet manager at ECS added: “As a Logistics service provider, ECS recognises the environmental impact of our business and takes the responsibility to reduce this impact as much as possible. Focus and improvement in environmental sustainability has always been part of our daily operations and business decisions.”
