Reefer

A reefer is a type of general cargo ship designed to carry refridgerated cargoes, almost exclusively perishable foods (such as bananas). Reefers have very high HVAC loads for the cargo holds. The reefer as a ship type has been superseded in modern use by container ships, where 'reefer' may refer to a container ship designed particularly to carry refridgerated containers (by means of extensive electrical capacity for the reefer containers as well as hold cooling and ventilation).
