TRU — Model Year 2007 TRU (reefer) owners must act soon!

The California Air Resources Board (ARB) reminds model year (MY)
2007 TRU owners: If you want to qualify for compliance
extensions, you must order soon – only about two weeks remain
before the purchase order deadline for ordering Level 3 verified
diesel particulate filters (DPF) for retrofitting your reefer
engines.

MY 2007 transport refrigeration unit (TRU) and TRU generator set
engines must comply with the TRU Regulation’s in-use performance
standards by December 31, 2014. The TRU Regulation does not
allow compliance extensions if orders for verified diesel
emissions control strategies, such as Level 3 DPFs, are placed
after October 31st and installation is not completed by December
31st, 2014.

However, if MY 2007 TRU owners order verified diesel emissions
control strategies (VDECS), such as Level 3 DPFs, by the end of
October, installation by the end of 2014 is very likely
possible.
More importantly, if you order a Level 3 DPF before October 31st
and delivery or installation is delayed so that you can’t comply
by the end of 2014, you may qualify for a compliance extension.

To qualify for compliance extension:
• Purchase orders for Level 3 DPFs must be placed by October
31st,
• The TRU must be registered in ARB’s Equipment Registration
(ARBER) system, and
• An application for extension must be submitted to ARB with the
required documentation by December 31, 2014.

Again, MY 2007 TRU owners that place orders for Level 3 VDECS
after October 31st will NOT qualify for this compliance extension
if they discover they cannot comply by December 31st due to
delays in delivery or installation.

TRU replacement engines may still be available for delivery and
installation by December 31, 2014, if you order soon. However,
the purchase order deadline for ordering replacement engines and
units has already passed – it was August 31, 2014. Therefore, if
you order replacement engines or units after August 31, 2014, and
installation is delayed until after December 31, 2014, you will
NOT qualify for a compliance extension.
