Swedish Armed Forces purchases an additional 50 Self-powered Refrigerated Containers from Klinge Corporation

March 01, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Klinge Corporation is pleased to announce that following delivery and extensive testing of its prototype container, the company's project with the Swedish Defence (Forsvars Materialverk, or FMV for short) has expanded to nearly twice the size of the initial contract for a total value of more than $9 million.

At first required to deliver 60 Self-powered Refrigerated Containers, FMV has now released an order for an additional 50 systems. This influx of work will be completed over the course of the next 12-14 months with the last deliveries wrapped up within the first half of 2014.

Klinge Corporation is currently expanding its workforce to meet these demands, as well as those of its other customers, and is planning for a very busy and productive 2013-2014.

These Refrigerated Containers are based on a standard 20 foot ISO-container with a hook frame for HEMTT or PLS lift trucks. The container system is equipped with integrated hydraulic rollers allowing easy loading/unloading and a manually operated hydraulic pump. The pump will enable the rollers to be lowered when loading or unloading and raised when the container is stationary.

The Refrigerated Containers also comply with U.S. military and European standards on strict climatic environment and transportation requirements.
