Geesinknorba has delivered this innovative refuse collection vehicle to Milieudienst Groningen. This new emission-free unit supports the ambition of Groningen to work completely energy neutral by 2035.
In 2017, the Dutch municipality added its first hydrogen refuse truck to its fleet of vehicles. The units have been manufactured in close partnership with E-Trucks Europe in the Netherlands and includes technology that has been used for heavy vehicles for years now. This has led to a unique vehicle with an impressive range. The unit can operate at least two working days in Groningen using hydrogen from the storage tanks that are positioned on the body roof.
As the unit will mainly operate in densely populated areas, it is very valuable for the users and residents there are no fine particles, CO² and noise emissions. Despite the environmental benefits, the unit maintains an impressive pay load of 10t. The energy efficient Geesink body requires minimum energy to power the compaction mechanism and multifunctional Eurotainer binlift. The result is a true all-purpose vehicle that delivers minimum impact on the environment.
