Eliminate All Idling with the Banana (APU) and Orange (AC) Combo

Immediate Environmental & Economical Sustainability!

Through constant research and development the IEP team remains committed to the enhancement, refinement and perfection of its locomotive idle reduction, fuel savings and air conditioning technologies.

Take Advantage of Our Banana (Auxiliary Power Unit) & Orange (Air Conditioner) Locomotive Combination

Our Banana APU charges the main batteries. Therefore, if you have our Banana APU, when the engine shuts down, our Orange (AC) will still run. Cool in the summer and heat in the winter. Both our systems work on a 72VDC.

Banana (APU) – Save on Fuel without Sacrificing Crew Comfort

VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) technology works like the accelerator in a car, by matching the Out-Put to the Load. The compressor starts up smoothly and ramps up until it meets the demand. When the Thermostat is satisfied, it ramps down to match the lower demand.

Key Features

  • Save fuel – Up to 20,000 gallons or more per year.
  • Safely shut down the locomotive engine when not in use.
  • Reduce locomotive engine wear expenses and “oil out of the stack” problems.
  • Improve operating efficiencies.
  • Reduce noise to meet local noise ordinances.
  • Reduce harmful emissions.
  • Potentially become eligible to earn Emissions Greenhouse Gas Credits.
  • Improve relations with authorities and stakeholders.
