Outstanding efficiency, quicker rounds and much quieter operations are just some of the benefits of upgrading RCV
fleet to low emission electrified vehicles.
Feedback from the market has been overwhelmingly positive. Outstanding efficiency, quicker rounds and much quieter operations are just some of the benefits appreciated by fleet managers, drivers and crews, residents, other road users and local politicians. And that’s in addition to the key benefits of zero emissions and operational cost savings.
More than 50 eRCVs are now in operation, working for both public and private sector operators and collecting a range of waste streams on both urban and rural rounds.
As the order book for eCollect continues to grow so does the dedicated production line at Dennis Eagle. The line has been significantly scaled up to cope with the increasing market demand. Until now, all the eCollects produced have been a zero-carbon alternative to Dennis Eagle’s best-selling diesel RCV, the 6x2, 26-tonne rear-loader. But other models are already in the pipeline. Like the original eCollect, these variants will be rigorously tested before going into production and are eagerly awaited by Dennis Eagle’s customers.
Recycling is an essential part of society’s duty of care for the environment but to conduct recycling collections in an environmentally sensitive way has presented a significant challenge in the past. For domestic services, collecting multiple separated waste streams in one visit using one vehicle was an important goal. And Terberg Matec UK successfully achieved this by developing the Kerbloader® vehicle.
With the all electric Kerbloader EV, Terberg Matec UK has considered the key aspects of environmental care and produced a zero emissions version of their successful kerbside sort recycling vehicle While still providing outstanding operational and cost efficiency, it doesn’t produce greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change or the nitrogen oxide gases and particulates associated with local air pollution.
Terberg Benschop, specialist in the development and production of terminal tractors for ports, distribution centres and industrial sites, has introduced a new generation of electric tractors.
The engine performance of the YT203EV Terminal Tractor is comparable to that of a diesel engine and customers can choose from a range of battery pack options. The YT203EV is working hard to help port terminals and distribution centres reduce their emissions.
Terberg Kinglifter is currently testing its first electric Truck-mounted Forklift, the E-TKL. It offers all the functionality of a diesel unit but now with zero emissions at the point of use, less noise and lower operating and maintenance costs.
The lifting capacity is 2,500 kg with a maximum lifting height of 4m. The E-TKL can be supplied with single or all-wheel drive and with four-way steering to drive sideways when carrying long loads.
Modification company Terberg Techniek developed an electric and electric-hydrogen power take-off unit for the electrification of diesel-driven concrete mixers and cranes on trucks, and on excavators.
As a result, the vehicles equipped with the E-PTO can work as clean and quiet vehicles in inner-city areas, which greatly contributes to making the construction sector more sustainable.
