UPS plans vac­cine freezer hubs

Irish Examiner - - Business -

United Par­cel Ser­vice is build­ing two gi­ant freezer farms ca­pa­ble of su­per-cool­ing mil­lions of vials of a Covid-19 vac­cine, pre­par­ing for the day when it will need to de­liver the medicine at high speed across the globe. The fa­cil­i­ties, un­der con­struc­tion in Ken­tucky, in the US, and the Nether­lands, near UPS air hubs, will house a to­tal of 600 deep-freez­ers that can each hold 48,000 vials of vac­cine at tem­per­a­tures as low as -80 Cel­sius. That’s on par with some of the cold­est tem­per­a­tures in Antarc­tica.
