QUEST power-saving mode cuts shipping refrigeration energy demand and emissions.
QUEST power-saving mode cuts refrigeration energy requirements by up to 50 percent while reducing emissions related to power consumption. The QUEST (Quality and Energy Efficiency in Storage and Transport) power-saving mode is available as an option for ThinLINE® , EliteLINE® and PrimeLINE® refrigeration units.
Implementing environmental solutions – the QUEST for energy savings.
- Carrier’s new power-saving mode is a software-based control option for Carrier Transicold refrigeration units with ML3 and ML2i controls.
- Developed and tested by Carrier, Wageningen University and Research Centre (UR) in the Netherlands, and Maersk Line, the QUEST power-saving mode leads a new generation of energy-saving solutions for transporting perishable food.
- It governs the run-time of container refrigeration system, and cycles refrigeration on and off based on temperature settings of specific perishables.
Maersk Line, the first in the shipping industry to adopt QUEST power-saving mode, estimates that when it is fully implemented throughout the fleet, it will be able to reduce its emissions by 325,000 tons each year.back to top
