NAVESUR becomes one of Thermo King’s newest customers

The SGCO-3000 clip-on genset is part of Thermo King’s SG-3000 Genset Series and is designed for quick mount operations to container corner castings and optimised aerodynamics: it can fit any frontal clip-on application.

NAVESUR was looking for new technology to reduce fuel consumption and costs on maintenance and repair. “We were really impressed with the genset’s EcoPower PLUS fuel saving technology as it reduces our operational costs,” said Jose Antonio Gomes, NAVESUR’s CEO. “The gensets are also easy to maintain and we can check the condition of the equipment via the SG+ controller. In fact, we can secure the proper condition of the unit before releasing it to a new service within three minutes. We couldn’t ask for more efficiency from this equipment.”

According to Thermo King, the SG+ controller is the only electronic microprocessor controller in the genset industry and it combines the latest electronics to sense not only the type of reefer it is powering, but also its mode of operation without compromising cargo care.

Training is an important component of new equipment purchases to NAVESUR. Thermo King service support professionals conducted a training course for NAVESUR personnel recently to ensure the proper operation and use of the new gensets. “Providing the appropriate training is an important part of any equipment sale,” said Gino Ansaldi, sales director and service manager for Thermo King. “We want our customers to be successful, and we want our equipment to run as efficiently as possible.”
