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 engine of a waste collection vehicle has to perform with great versatility during its working day. With the Dual Power 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 decreases both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions into the environment.
Instead of energy-intensive compressed air brakes, the FAUN Zoeller (UK) Limited Rotopress Dual Power and Variopress Dual Power are 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.
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 Dual Power saves around one third of the cost of fuel required for daily operation.
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 Dual Power has a highly positive impact on your carbon footprint.
The FAUN Zoeller (UK) Limited Rotopress Dual Power 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).
