The team here at Icecool Trailers focuses all of our energies on the services we provide, including refrigerated trailer rental for both planned events and emergencies. We do not spend a lot of time talking about cutting-edge technologies such as natural refrigeration. However, that does not mean these technologies do not affect us. They do, and they will continue to do so as long as we are in the refrigeration business.
The UK government is currently looking at a cutting-edge space heating principle that would extract heat from the cold waters of rivers and canals to provide space heat in local areas during the winter months. Although the idea does not directly relate to what we do at Icecool Trailers, it is intriguing enough to make us wonder whether a walk-in freezer could double as a space heater for some applications. Allow us to explain.
RAC Magazine editor Andrew Gaved is among the industry professionals thrilled to announce that the government has accepted the industry's framework for apprenticeship training. That framework, long in the making, will have a very definite impact on the entire refrigeration industry. It will even affect the future of refrigerated trailer rental. It is all about training the next generation of workers who will be designing, building, and servicing the equipment of tomorrow.
Regular readers of our blog are familiar with the concept of the cold chain. It is something that we take for granted in the West, yet something that is desperately needed in developing countries. As such, a brand-new commission has been formed to look at the future of the cold chain and how it can be utilised to end food waste and worldwide hunger. Its scope will go well beyond things such as retail refrigeration and refrigerated trailer rental.
