Voltia just got the license to operate its refrigerated electric van. Voltia uses a prototype based on the Nissan e-NV200 XL van as its base. The approval is for Austria. There is a gap in the market for fully electric cooling vans, and Voltia worked with high-tech companies and research partners to develop a zero emission solution.
Voltia (based in Slovakia and specialising in zero-emission deliveries ) developed the e-transporter for two Austrian scientific climate protection projects: ZERO Logistics and CONSERVE. Austria’s Agency for promoting research (FFG) and the Klima & Energie Fond support the projects with a total of €3.3Mn.
Within the said framework, Voltia cooperates with several research partners, such as Johannes Kepler University of Linz, IESTA, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, Technische Universität Wien and technology companies.
First testing partner has been the Austrian-based bio food producer company Biohof Achleitner from Eferding in Upper Austria. “We are extremely happy to be able to have combined the advantages of emission-free transport with natural refrigerant cooling technology,” said Juraj Ulehla, Voltia´s CEO.
