Bitzer and Maersk sign 10-year contract

Bitzer has announced a new decade-long agreement to extend its collaboration with Maersk Container Industry (MCI).

As part of the contract, Bitzer will continue to supply MCI with 2-stage Octagon aluminium compressors for maintaining optimal temperatures for perishable food transport. The semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors are the heart of the Star Cool refrigeration system, which was launched by MCI to meet the increasing needs of their customers with optimal cargo quality and focus on energy efficiency as a primary objective.

The specific compressor technology developed by Bitzer, and the dedicated electronic control developed by Lodam, have contributed to Star Cool’s wide recognition of its proven low energy consumption and innovative cargo preservation features.

Lodam, the Danish Bitzer subsidiary, developed the system’s electronic control unit specifically for the Star Cool refrigeration unit. Lodam has been part of the Bitzer Group since 2007 and specialises in control systems.

MCI and Bitzer have been working together for more than 15 years. Today, the Star Cool system is installed in over 250,000 reefer containers operated globally across more than 40 international shipping lines and multinational fruit companies.

Oliver Rathfelder, director of sales transport at Bitzer, commented: 'The Star Cool refrigeration system and Octagon compressors are a perfect match – just like MCI and Bitzer. The transport sector requires elaborate solutions which we are very pleased to be able to provide together.'

Octagon reciprocating compressors for reliable cold chains

Gianni Parlanti, chief sales and marketing officer at Bitzer, stated: 'We look forward to continuing to work intensively with Maersk Container Industry over the next ten years. With this long-term declaration, the two companies confirm that the partnership has been successful and that we can achieve great things together. With our partnership, we ensure that cold chains for perishable goods are reliably maintained throughout transport – around the world.'

Soren Leth Johannsen, chief commercial officer at MCI added: 'Technology and design are key as we continuously aim to advance Star Cool containers’ proven high energy efficiency and performance. We are pleased to continue the collaboration with Bitzer and further build on the competitive strengths of Star Cool together.
