Five fully electric refuse collection vehicles will soon be delivered to BIR Husholdning AS in Bergen, Norway, marking a major milestone in the company’s efforts to transition to a cleaner, more sustainable form of waste management.
The new vehicles feature state-of-the-art technology and are capable of completing the daily work without the need of frequent recharging. Operators have access to the all-electric Norba N4 rear loader with the L200 comb lifter mounted on Volvo FE chassis. The unit offers more efficiency during the collection rounds and advanced features, ensuring operators can work in a safe and healthy environment.
The transition to fully electric RCVs is expected to have a number of benefits for the city, including reduced noise and air pollution, lower operating costs and improved reliability. BIR will deploy the new vehicles in the coming period, with the goal of transitioning to an emission free fleet in the future.
The next delivery is already scheduled and includes six all-electric Norba N4 rear loaders and one MF multi fraction unit mounted on Volvo FE.
We would like to congratulate the team of BIR with the new fleet of vehicles. These new vehicles are a major step forward in the effort to fight climate change and protect the environment.
