ConMet’s Nmotion TR 160-45 Wins HDT Top 20 Product Award

March 5, 2024 | ConMet

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Mar. 05, 2024 — ConMet eMobility’s Nmotion™ TR 160-45 has been identified by the editors of Heavy Duty Trucking magazine as one of the most innovative and significant new-product announcements of 2023. The product is being recognized for its groundbreaking technology and its ability to address important industry issues.

The Nmotion TR 160-45 utilizes PreSet Plus® eHub™ technology to capture kinetic energy using in-wheel electric motors. This energy is then transformed into usable electricity to power the transport refrigeration unit (TRU) or stored in the system’s battery for future use. The patent-pending controls ensure optimal energy harvesting to keep valuable cargo cool.

By acting as an electric power source, the Nmotion TR 160-45 eliminates the need for a diesel-powered TRU. It also allows for access to emission and noise restricted urban zones and reduces the overall environmental impact of commercial vehicles. At the same time, driver comfort is enhanced by providing a quieter ride.

The Nmotion TR 160-45 can be paired with an electric tractor for a fully zero-emission vehicle, making it an ideal solution for fleets looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Commercial vehicle fleets face mounting pressure to reduce emissions and greenhouse gases. The Nmotion TR 160-45 offers an immediate emission reduction solution by electrifying the fuel intensive TRUs.

“The Nmotion TR 160-45 is a game-changer for commercial vehicle fleets, offering a zero-emission trailer regeneration system that significantly reduces emissions,” says Marc Trahand, VP and GM, ConMet eMobility. “We’re proud to be recognized by Heavy Duty Trucking magazine for this innovative product and remain committed to developing efficient and sustainable solutions for the industry.”

The Nmotion TR 160-45 is an innovative power source for trailers that delivers tangible benefits for fleets. Each trailer powered by the TR 160-45 has the potential to save up to 1,500 gallons of TRU diesel fuel annually and reduce nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide, and particulate matter.

ConMet’s Nmotion TR 160-45 winning the HDT Top 20 Product award is a testament to the company’s exceptional innovation and its ability to improve fleet performance. This zero-emission trailer energy regeneration system is practical and easy to put into operation with commercial delivery fleets.
