IR Generates $64M in Orders
Ingersoll-Rund said its Climate Control Sector, a provider of solutions to transport, preserve, store and display temperature-sensitive products, has received approximately $64 million in orders in recent months for Thermo King-branded maritime transport containers and related technologies. The orders were placed by seven of the world's leading shipping companies, including Orient Overseas Container I.ine Limited (OOCL). More than half of the orders were placed for the Thermo King MAGNUM container refrigeration unit, which is a refrigeration technology for seagoing containers with the ability to generate and maintain a temperature of minus 31 degrees F (minus 35 degrees C.) Orders also were placed for the Thermo King CRR, a container refrigeration unit that provides advanced temperature control and energy efficiencies, and for Thermo King microprocessorcontrolled generator sets. "Thermo King's new MAGNUM technology, combined with OOCL's service network, is enabling OOCL to create new markets for our customers," said Alfred Cheung, director. Reefer Trade, OOCL.
