LAMBERET presented its innovation at the SOLUTRANS in November

Erick Mejean, Lamberet’s CEO, says: “The momentum around the subjects of fresh product distribution and the energy transition has accelerated since the last Solutrans in 2019. Lamberet, a leader in the development of temperature-controlled transport, is betting on innovation to meet the new challenges facing transporters‚ÄĚ.¬†

The innovations exhibited at Solutrans 2021 by Lamberet have three keywords in common: “zero-emission”, “streamlining”, and “efficiency”. ‚Äú

Zero-emissions, with electrified solutions from 1 to 100m3. 

Lamberet presented the most advanced bodies in all “zero-emission” technologies applicable to refrigerated vehicles: Hydrogen, electrification, solar power.¬†

        SR2 FRESH2, a multi-temperature reefer whose electric cooling unit is powered directly by the hydrogen fuel cell without the need for a buffer battery pack that adds to cost, weight and power consumption. A world first, this development is the result of a partnership between state of the art industry players: the OEM supplier Bosch (co-exhibitor on the Lamberet stand at Solutrans), the manufacturer of cooling units Carrier Transicold and the leading transport company STEF. 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†SR2-e is a “rechargeable electric” multi-temperature distribution reefer whose energy requirements are met by a battery pack. This pack can be recharged either while driving through energy recovery or production, or from the mains with the option of a static precharge (as for a rechargeable hybrid vehicle). The latest generation TRAK’r electric generator axle, supplied by SAF, is integrated into the chassis of the semi-trailer made by Lamberet.¬†

        Renault Trucks D ZE 26-tonne electric straight truck with a Frigoline HD refrigerated body and a solar panel power system to supply extra power to the bodywork. These are not prototypes, but functional mass-producible bodies, with several vehicles delivered this year for companies such as Casino and Lidl, among others. 

        Peugeot e-Expert 100% electric van, equipped with a Lamberet ultra-efficient insulation solution coupled with an eCoolJet 106 unit from Kerstner (a Lamberet subsidiary innovation that won the Solutrans 2019 innovation award), whose efficiency means that no additional battery pack is required. Lamberet is the first bodybuilder to offer an electric refrigerated van conversion in the fresh range for the same cost as a classical diesel van! 

Streamlining, showcased by the FRIGOLIGHT refrigerated van concept 

Frigolight is the forerunner of the new generation of Lamberet bodywork for floor or chassis-cab type commercial vehicles, Lamberet intends to revolutionise the routine tasks of delivery drivers¬†by introducing¬†the world’s first voice-activated body control¬†on its rigid trucks and semi-trailers.
Based on the Multiplex Lamberet connected application, the “OK Lamberet” voice command can be used to control the raising of the taillift, the opening and closing of the lifting door, the safety lighting, and others. This makes delivery operations safer, faster and more comfortable for the operator.¬†
The voice command developed by Lamberet is a breakthrough innovation for drivers, whose routine had not fundamentally changed in the last 50 years. 

In the field of safety, Lamberet unveils a breakthrough innovation to secure dockside operators: the first Automatic Drop Immobilizer (ADI) system. The major risk when loading vehicles at the dock is departure while a handling machine is still in operation. The untimely departure prevention system developed by Lamberet innovates with its automation based on a new implementation of RFID technology. 

Lamberet’s ADI is reliable, affordable, and retrofittable to all semi-trailers and straight trucks. The docks can be equipped with the system without adding heavy new structures or a power supply. Automatic and maintenance-free, and therefore without risk of human error, the Lamberet ADI is a universal, accessible innovation that¬†can prevent accidents and save lives.¬†
