CargoPower preserves perishable foods after a hurricane
The challenge to the customer
When Hurricane Georges hit the eastern U.S. coast, a produce
supplier with 500 tons (453 m.t.) of perishables docked in the bay
found themselves in a dire predicament.
A contingency plan went into action immediately, calling on
Aggreko to power the containers using fifteen Cargo Power units
while they were moved to a facility 10 miles (16 km) inland to
weather the storm.
The benefits to the customer
Through Aggreko's rapid response that allowed the refrigerated
containers to maintain the proper temperature during the move, and
throughout the duration of the hurricane, the e fresh produce was
preserved until delivery was possible.
