Thermo King Advancer
Thermo King® launched Advancer, a complete re-imagining of the transport refrigeration unit for the trailer market. The team focused on sustainability: creating a new, more efficient, greener cooling product that is manufactured with energy from 100% renewable sources. Advancer was a complex, high innovation NPD challenge that brought together many disciplines, involving a large cross-functional team of more than 100 people, guided by PMBOK® Guide principles. This effort was led by Design and Manufacturing teams co-located in Galway, Ireland - supported by Centers of Excellence in Bangalore, Minneapolis and Prague. By transforming transport refrigeration with Advancer, Thermo King is helping to move its parent company Trane Technologies closer to their Gigaton Challenge, reducing customers emissions by one gigaton by 2030.
