Aura Systems Inc (OTCBB: AUSI) announced that it received approximately $420,000 of orders for its all-electric transport refrigeration systems for mid-size trucks from one customer. The systems are scheduled to be delivered and installed for the customer over the next two months.
The customer selected Aura’s all-electric transport refrigeration after numerous tests and evaluation including comparison on actual routes with traditional diesel-based systems.
Aura’s all electric transport refrigeration for mid-size trucks consists of its patented AuraGen mobile power system and private-label transport refrigeration system from Zanotti of Italy. The system eliminates the traditional diesel engine used for refrigeration and replaces it with all-electric components. This eliminates all emissions associated with small diesel engines, reducing fuel consumption and providing a large reduction in noise associated with diesel refrigeration engines.
When the vehicle is parked for deliveries, the engine is shut down and the refrigeration system continues to work by using Aura’s patented bi-directional power supply to provide power from batteries. These batteries are recharged whenever the vehicle’s engine is on. With this system, the truck does not need to idle, thus complying with environmental standards encompassed in the anti-idling laws.
