Onion Power

Posted by Mike Cash (Kiryu, Japan) on 3 September 2010 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

When shipping onions in intermodal containers it is standard practice to remove one door from the container (it is placed inside) in order to provide fresh air and prevent product spoilage resulting from condensation. One shipping line developed and produced several special onion transport containers with a battery-powered fan built into upper part of one of the doors, enabling the use of both doors and providing improved circulation and spoilage prevention, but these are used only in the transport of South Africa onions to Europe.
