omb -- TRU (reefer) owners: Less than 10 days to go for purchase order deadlines! Posted: 22 Aug 2012 14:42:53
Do You do any of these things? . 1. Transport (move) perishable (things that could spoil) products? or 2. Use a diesel powered internal combustion engine to keep the products at the right temperature (warm or cool)? 3. Use a Model Year (MY) 2005 TRU? Then this applies to you. Call the TRU Help Line at 1-888-878-2826 or call 1-916-327-8737. Call today. Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs) are diesel powered internal combustion engine refrigeration systems designed to heat or refrigerate perishable products that are transported in various containers, including semi-trailers, truck vans, shipping containers, and rail cars. The California Air Resources Board (ARB) urges transport refrigeration unit (TRU or reefer) owners to take immediate action to plan and order compliance options for model year (MY) 2005 TRUs. MY 2005 TRUs must comply with in-use performance standards by December 31, 2012. If there is a delay in delivery or installation of compliance technology, you may qualify for a compliance extension, provided you ordered the compliance technology before the purchase order deadline and the TRU is registered in ARBER. Purchase orders must be placed early enough to take into account delivery, installation, holiday, and year-end lead times. The purchase order deadlines are: • For engine repowers and TRU replacements: By the end of August (in less than 10 days!), which is four months ahead of the compliance deadline • For verified diesel particulate filter retrofits: By the end of October, which is two months ahead of the compliance deadline For model year 2005 engines, owners must make a good-faith effort to comply by the end of 2012. If compliance cannot be achieved by December 31, 2012, due to delays in delivery, installation, or financing, reefer owners may apply for a compliance extension. To qualify for a compliance extension, the reefer must be registered in ARBER, purchase orders must be placed by the purchase order deadlines listed above, and a compliance extension application with attached supporting documentation must be received at ARB by December 31, 2012.
