Evergreen connects 1,000 new refrigerated containers to the Internet

Evergreen Marine Corp. has decided to add a monitoring tool to its latest chilled water feed of 1,000 Maersk Container Industry (MCI) Star Cool Units after a year of successful connectivity trials of the Sekstant reefer container monitoring solution.

“By equipping Star Cool reefer containers with the Sekstant surveillance solution, we can offer our customers even more control over their equipment. We are proud to partner with Evergreen and look forward to continuing to innovate and improve our operations together,” said Anders Holm, Director of Global Sales & Service at MCI.

Evergreen first ordered Star Cool reefer containers from MCI in 2020 and has since continued to expand the Star Cool fleet.

“Energy efficiency is achieved through a proven combination of variable speed drive technology and a robust variable speed reciprocating compressor, resulting in optimal control of engine speed based on cooling needs and required airflow, ensuring an ideal cargo environment while saving energy,” MCI said in a statement.

MCI points out that connecting reefer containers to the Internet brings several benefits, such as: B. remotely documenting the actual carbon footprint at both trip and fleet level, tracking the location and condition of each reefer container, and performance monitoring and optimization.
