China's First Lithium Battery Refrigerated Container Put Into Trial Operation In Shanghai

- Jun 01, 2020-

CCB Online News, on May 30, a railway freight train carrying the country's first lithium battery refrigerated container slowly drove out of the railway Shanghai Yangpu Station. Four days later, the 25 tons of imported frozen meat delivered in a refrigerated container will arrive in Chengdu, Sichuan.


It is reported that the 45-foot lithium battery refrigerated container used in the trial is the first refrigerated container in China that uses large-capacity lithium batteries as its power system. The container is developed and manufactured by CRRC Changjiang Company, which has the characteristics of energy saving, environmental protection and economy. Refrigerated containers driven by lithium batteries (new energy) can meet various transportation needs such as railways, highways, and waterways. The cabinet adopts high-power pure electric frequency conversion refrigeration unit, which has many advantages such as fast cooling speed, low power consumption, good thermal insulation performance, etc. At the same time, the lithium battery refrigerated container uses information technology to implement remote monitoring of the entire transportation process, which improves the reliability of transportation .


"The lithium battery refrigerated container will be operated by railway freight train at an operating speed of 80 km/h. It will not be regrouped on the way. It is monitored by the entire platform. Compared with other cold chain transportation, it has full electronic temperature control, high safety and stability. Satisfying the advantages of all-weather transportation and other advantages, in terms of transportation flexibility, it also has certain advantages compared with other cold chain transportation methods, which can effectively enhance the market competitiveness of products. Liu Ziyu, deputy general manager of Shanghai Branch of China Railway Special Freight Transportation Co., Ltd., who participated in the trial operation, also said that according to the results of the trial operation, the railway department will conduct an evaluation and analysis. In the later period, it will become possible for lithium battery reefer containers to gradually achieve scale and train operation.
