European Aviation Safety Agency Awards Envirotainer with Certificate
Envirotainer reports that the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has awarded it with the airworthiness certificate for Envirotainer’s newest development, the RAP e2 container. The Envirotainer RAP e2 container is an active temperature-controlled container featuring electrical heating and compressor cooling to maintain temperature control in tough environments.
Envirotainer first introduced electrical heating and compressor cooling container, the RKN e1, to the market in 2005.
With addition of the RAP e2 to the Envirotainer fleet, a large-volume container with electrical heating and compressor cooling technology becomes available. It features a forkliftable base and completely redesigned container shell built in all composite material.
According to a press release, the RAP e2 container maintains product temperature in the +2 to +8 °C range, controlled room temperature (+15 to +25 °C) range or at any chosen temperature between ±0 and +25°C in ambient temperatures from –25 °C up to +50°C depending on the set temperature.
Thomas Persson CEO said in the press release: “Launching the RAP e2 container to complement our e-technology fleet is an important step in offering our customer the possibility to ship larger quantities of temperature sensitive goods with very strict temperature requirements. We have seen that this segment of the market is growing and so are the volumes of the individual shipments. Besides increasing our RKN e1 fleet we focus on manufacturing the RAP e2 container to cover for these larger shipments to offer a competitive and ecological solution compared to multiple smaller shipments.”
