8 U.S. EPA Tier 4 Requirements Bring Changes When it comes to diesel engine emissions, generator sets used with container refrigeration systems have become progressively cleaner over the years, in part driven by increasingly strict regulations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB). In 2013, the U.S. diesel emissions standards, including those covering engines used in transport refrigeration units, change once again, and EPA’s standard applicable to the PowerLINE™ platform’s current engine class will be superseded by a more...

s 9 for Generator Sets while retaining much in common with the existing PowerLINE platform. As with Carrier’s trailer refrigeration technology, system enhancements will significantly improve efficiency and performance – so much so that engine horsepower requirements are reduced. As a result, the generator set engine will fall within the scope of EPA’s Tier 4 emissions standard for nonroad engines rated 8-19 kW. Generator sets with ecoFORWARD technologies will also be significantly more fuel efficient than today’s standard PowerLINE units. Fuel savings will help to offset higher equipment...
