This paper describes an ongoing collaboration between Thermo King and the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, in the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT). The company has an operation in Galway where it designs and manufactures truck and trailer refrigeration units. Thermo King is introducing a major new product in 2019 and has set challenging Factory Sustainability Goals that includes the entire production process being carbon neutral. Three Engineering students, guided by the Lecturer and the Thermo King Project team, are developing a specification for the line to meet a recognised international standard. The project is being carried out as part of the students’ final year projects (FYP).
