Emons and IM Efficiency achieve 2nd place Trailer Innovation Award 2021
HELMOND, October 2020 - Emons and IM Efficiency took second place in the prestigious Trailer Innovation Award 2021 in the Environment category. IM Efficiency is working closely with Emons in a pilot to test the SolarOnTop in practice. Thanks to the SolarOnTop, the 2WIN semi-trailer of Emons Group becomes more reliable: electrical appliances such as the tail lift are kept fully charged, ready to be deployed at any moment.
The Trailer Innovation competition, which has run annually since 2002, highlights tremendous achievements in the trailer and body building industry. This year, according to the event organisers, 50 innovations from all over the world were reviewed by a panel of journalists from 16 European transport magazines.
The scope of this review encompasses smart, environmentally friendly solutions to complex vehicle concepts and systems. It also considered intelligent, lighter, durable, aerodynamic and economical characteristics.
The 2021 prize winners placed in seven categories: Body, Chassis, Components, Concept, Environment, Safety and Smart Trailer.
Solar panels are mounted on a trailer with the SolarOnTop. The generated green energy is delivered to the trailer by means of intelligent electronics or stored in a Li-ion battery. This results in a higher degree of reliability in the use of the trailer, lower CO2 emissions and fuel savings.
Emons and IM Efficiency are very happy with the award. Martijn Ildiz, CEO of IM Efficiency: "The prize is recognition for our SolarOnTop product. It proves that our innovative solution contributes to the sustainability objective within transport."
