ConMet eMobility announces partnerships to expand eHub availability

ConMet eMobility has announced commercial partnerships and supply agreements to increase sales of the PreSet Plus eHub. The eHub system pairs an in-wheel electric motor with a ConMet PreSet Plus hub assembly, engineered to capture kinetic energy and convert it to electricity. The electricity is stored in a high-capacity, lightweight battery that sits beneath a trailer, providing the vehicle with auxiliary power. When shared with transport refrigeration units (TRUs), this regenerative energy is capable of providing zero-emission refrigeration to a fully loaded trailer, eliminating the need for a separate diesel engine and reducing overall fuel consumption.

In January 2022, ConMet eMobility announced a commercial partnership with Carrier Transicold, which is further expanding its electrification capabilities in North America by leveraging the eHub system. When paired with a Carrier Vector unit, the technology can deliver a zero-emission transport refrigeration solution. CARB, in California, recently announced plans to make zero-emission TRUs mandatory and other states are expected to follow. As fleets work toward electrification, the alliance between ConMet eMobility and Carrier Transicold is well-positioned to support these new standards.

The system has already hit the road in California. On March 1st the companies announced an agreement with Sysco Corp., the global leader in foodservice distribution, to supply Sysco with a zero-emission refrigeration system as part of a commercial evaluation program. The delivery of this advanced system took place earlier this year at Sysco’s Riverside, Calif., operating site, a location at the forefront of Sysco’s fleet electrification efforts.

ConMet eMobility is also working with Great Dane, the first to specify a pre-configured trailer option for the eHub system.
