A newbuild Panamax container ship of 4,600 TEU will, typically, have capacity for 700 reefer plugs and, with a full load, will consume 18 tonnes of HFO per day. The requirements of the cargo and the power consumption demanded are important considerations for the refrigeration technician.

With a growing global refrigerated trade and with few dedicated reefer ships on order, growth in refrigerated capacity on container ships continues. However, increased reefer cargo claims point to a lack of knowledge by both ship and shore personnel, so this book aims to close up the gaps in that knowledge.
