IVECO has supplied three Daily Natural Power vans to Veolia, the UK’s largest waste management company. The compressed natural gas (CNG) powered vans are specifically selected to carry specialist equipment for the removal of graffiti, as part of its new contract to serve and help the London Borough of Camden.
Supplied by IVECO dealer, Northern Commercials, the Daily Natural Power light vehicles feature purpose-built spark ignition engines, delivering greater performance compared to a diesel in terms of power, torque and response. Running on compressed natural gas (CNG) means that the vehicles produce 12% fewer NOx emissions, 76% less particulate matter and up to 95% less CO2 emissions using bio-methane.
The vehicles will be operate whenever required and are approximately 50% quieter when compared with their diesel equivalents. The vehicles will refuel from Veolia’s new CNG refuelling station situated at its Alperton depot, specifically built to service all the CNG vehicles in the Camden fleet.
Andrew Hope, Fleet Development Manager at Veolia, said: “Emissions reduction was a critical factor in Veolia’s decision making for this vehicle so the availability of a cost-effective CNG engine made the Daily our first choice when specifying the panel van. The team at Northern Commercials were great to work with and IVECO built the vehicles within the required time frame.”
