ROTOPRESS DUALPOWER Hybrid Drive
THE FIRST WASTE COLLECTION VEHICLE WITH DIESEL-ELECTRIC HYBRID DRIVE.
In these times of very high fuel costs, sensible economic decisions are more important than ever. As European market leader in the field of waste collection vehicles, FAUN Zoeller (UK) Limited has developed a new drive concept that is both easy on your resources and good for the environment.
The new generation: ultra-quiet, very economical and extremely robust.
The engine of a waste collection vehicle has to perform with great versatility during its working day. With the DUALPOWER option, FAUN Zoeller (UK) Limited has created an optimized power train with its own hybrid diesel-electric power unit that stores the energy otherwise lost when braking and sensibly reuses it to carry out the various work processes required when collecting waste. This not only relieves the vehicles main engine, but substantially increases fuel consumption and substantially decreases CO2 emissions into the environment. Instead of energy-intensive compressed air brakes, the FAUN Zoeller (UK) Limited ROTOPRESS DUALPOWER is equipped with an electrical braking system that not only promotes energy recovery, it also greatly minimizes brake wear. The additional power unit is fitted with a soundproofing capsule, which considerably reduces noise compared to a conventional waste collection vehicle without hybrid drive.
33% less fuel consumption
Fuel consumption is accounting for an increasingly high percentage of the total cost of operating a waste disposal vehicle and has therefore become a major overhead. Current estimates put the figure at approximately 40 percent. The new FAUN Zoeller (UK) Limited ROTOPRESS DUALPOWER saves around one third of the cost of fuel required for daily operation.
33% fewer CO2 emissions
Concepts for sustainability are now highly relevant for both local government and private companies. Only those who develop coherent strategies can retain their credibility in the long run. The reduction in toxic emissions achieved with the FAUN Zoeller (UK) Limited ROTOPRESS DUALPOWER has a highly positive impact on your carbon footprint.
91 dB (A) instead of 106 dB (A) noise emission
The FAUN Zoeller (UK) Limited ROTOPRESS DUALPOWER quiet drive unit operates at 91 dB (A). In comparison: conventional waste collection vehicles generate approximately 106 dB (A) (to the human ear, an increase of 15 dB (A) is equivalent to three times the noise level experienced).
EDA Fuel Saving Device
Exclusive to FAUN Zoeller (UK) Limited, the Eco Drive Assistant (EDA) is an electronic control device designed to reduce fuel consumption by optimising driving for “stop/start” refuse collection driving cycles. The EDA keeps the engine in the optimal torque zone by supervising the gear change timing and effectively removing the “heavy right foot” syndrome. The EDA reduces stress on the engine and leads to fuel consumption reduction in domestic collection rounds of up to 20%.
• Up to 20% fuel savings on domestic collection rounds
• 10% guaranteed saving on a 55%+ stop/start collection round
• Reduces stress on the engine, so less wear and longer life
• Straight forward new vehicle or retro installation
• No intervention with original engine control system
• Universal fitment to all vehicles
• Dramatic reduction in carbon emissions
All work is undertaken by our highly trained Engineers to the highest standards using genuine parts.
