MINNEAPOLIS  Thermo King Corporation’s TriPaceTM, the all-new electric auxiliary idle reduction and temperature management system, has received verification from the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Verified Technologies program.

The program recognizes products that reduce emissions, save fuel and deliver other benefits related to environmental sustainability. Thermo King’s engine-based auxiliary power unit (APU), the TriPacTM system, has also been verified by SmartWay.

“Thermo King continues to drive innovation for our customers and the APU marketplace by providing ‘Choice,’” says Dwayne Cowan, APU manager for Thermo King.  “Whether it is the TriPac, an engine based solution, or TriPace, a non engine-based solution, Thermo King products represent best-in-class performance.”

The TriPace is the first electric APU from Thermo King, the industry leader in idle reduction technology, and provides a clean, sustainable choice for those customers looking for APU options. The system is designed to maintain comfortable temperature conditions in the truck cab without running an engine. It is a battery-powered solution that uses sophisticated power management technology to optimize energy used.
