PreZero (formerly Cespa), the company that has been providing its expertise in Murcia for more than 40 years, has chosen for a new fleet of GeesinkNorba vehicles to improve the service provided to one of Spain’s major cities.
The new fleet includes the following types:
>18 AMS CL1N 25 m³ side loading RCV
> 9 AMS CL1N 13 m³ side loading RCV
> 5 Geesink GPM IV 16 m³ rear loaders
> 1 GNG GBW SL side-loading container washer
To achieve environmentally advanced RCVs, gas powered chassis have been used in all cases to reduce C0₂ emissions as much as possible. The rear loaders are equipped with Geesink’s exclusive ‘Smartpack’ energy saving system, which combines a variable flow pump with regulating valves, significantly reducing noise emissions and energy consumption by only activating the part of the hydraulic circuit required for each manoeuvre or operation in the collection cycle.
These Geesink GPM IV model RCVs, that at PreZero’s request have been heavily strengthened, are equipped with the patented compaction system without guide rails, suspended on two support points, which achieves the highest compaction ratios on the market. The large hopper makes it extremely practical for collecting bulky waste or door-to-door collection.
The two side loading RCVs come in two capacities, the standard 25 m³ and a special unit, that is unique in the market due to its reduced 13 m³ capacity. This type is ideal for accessing areas in the centre of Murcia. Four have been fitted with the lift on the left-hand side. To reduce the environmental impact, the side-loading vehicles use a limited amount of hydraulic fluid combined with extended fluid change requirements.
The container washer is equipped with a water-saving system and works at low revolutions to reduce noise and fuel consumption. All RCVs and the container washer come equipped with a multitude of options, such as a system to prevent dome formation in the hoppers of the side loading RCVs or a variable compaction speed system, depending on the size of the container, for greater efficiency.
It is also important to note the awareness that PreZero has shown regarding safety. All units are equipped with special lighting systems to increase visibility and prevent accidents while working at night. They also feature a smart camera and monitor system that is designed to facilitate low-speed manoeuvring by giving the driver a real-time overview of the vehicle’s surroundings. Ultra-wide-angle lens cameras mounted on the front, side and rear of the vehicle capture the vehicle’s surroundings, including all blind spots. Simultaneous digital images from these cameras are processed to generate a single 360° bird’s eye view. The built-in software instantly eliminates any distortion and produces a clear, real-time image on the driver’s screen.
The presentation of the new fleet in the capital of Murcia was attended by the mayor of the city, Mr José Antonio Serrano Martínez, the Third Deputy Mayor, Ms Carmen Fructuoso Carmona, Councillor for Sustainable Mobility and Street Cleaning, the Director of PreZero Murcia, Mr Antonio Igualada Fernández and PreZero’s Regional Director for the East and Balearic Islands, Mr Jorge Tejedo.
