Renault Trucks delivers Spain’s first 26t hybrid domestic refuse collection vehicle
5 October 2012
Spanish domestic waste collection and processing company Urbaser has taken delivery of the first 26 t hybrid truck fitted with a refuse collection body in Spain. The 320 hp (235 kW) 6x2*4 Premium Distribution Hybrys Tech can cut fuel consumption by as much as 20%.
The parallel hybrid system combines a 320 hp DXi7 internal combustion engine with a 120 kW electric motor and supplies power to the wheels according to a number of different distribution scenarios: either both of them in parallel, or separately.
Since most of our collection rounds are carried out in an urban environment, we predominantly operate in electric mode. This gives us a triple advantage: the service we provide is more pleasant and quieter, it is an initiative contributing to sustainable development and saves energy.—Rubén Torrado, director of purchasing and equipment at Urbaser
