Green Point moves into transport sector

Green Point is now supplying a range of specialist high performance Bitzer compressors designed for use in bus and coach air conditioning systems.

Green Point's Will Pribyl.

The Roadstar series of lightweight aluminium compressors is available in 14 models, spanning capacities from 3-77kW, and is suitable for use in a wide variety of bus and coach air conditioning systems. Units are equipped with two, four or six cylinders.

Will Pribyl, Green Point UK general manager, said: “Huge strides have been made in recent years in terms of onboard comfort on buses and coaches, and growth in use of air conditioning is a key contributor. Roadstar compressors are highly reliable and energy efficient, and specifically designed for use in bus and coach air conditioning systems.”

He added: “With the upward rise in temperatures in summer months, it is more important than ever to ensure comfortable conditions are maintained for customers and staff. The purpose-designed units deliver this, and are backed by the global reputation of Bitzer’s engineering quality and heritage.”

Green Point UK is stocking the most popular models and spare parts at its Milton Keynes headquarters for next day delivery across the UK. As the business develops, it plans to introduce a remanufacturing service for transport compressors to cater for fleet operators looking for a high quality remanufactured option.

Green Point will supply Roadstar compressors and spare parts to bus and coach fleet operators requiring reliable replacement compressors and original spare parts for use in systems that have suffered breakdown.

The company can offer direct drop-in replacements for other makes, ensuring compatibility of design, minimising downtime and delivering superior performance.

Roadstar is designed for heavy duty continuous application with minimal servicing, and is equipped with reinforced drive gear to ensure high reliability and long service life under extreme conditions.

The compressors are highly tolerant and able to start with refrigerant inside the crank case and in the suction line (liquid slugging). Servicing can be carried out quickly and easily without time-consuming disassembly of the drive clutch.

A training programme in bus compressor technology is being introduced at the Schaufler Academy in Rottenburg, Germany to support the initiative. The one-day course includes both theoretical and hands-on training.
