The new single and multi-temperature T-1200R Whisper Pro models, by Thermo King, meet the most stringent noise regulations including upcoming PIEK requirements which allows transporters to operate inner-city deliveries with less impact on communities.

“Improving inner-city living conditions and eliminating the levels of noise emissions are among European cities’ top priorities. Transporters operating in urban areas must ensure their refrigeration units meet the strictest noise regulations set by municipalities and regulators,” says Davide Previsdomini, product manager truck at Thermo King. “Noise attenuation across all our products to lower the impact on communities and drivers has always been a priority for Thermo King. By introducing the Whisper Pro model of our highest cooling capacity truck unit, we give our customers a solution to keep effectively operating in the cities.”

 From Thermo King:

  • Units are available as diesel-powered or hybrid models
  • Hybrid version can seamlessly switch between diesel and electric mode to enter cities’ low emission zones
  • Offers the same reliability and performance as the T-Series with sound levels below the latest PIEK standard requirements
  • Features telematics mounted as standard and is using geo-fencing to automatically switch into quiet mode when entering a pre-defined low noise-emission zone
