100% electric trucks: Household waste collection in Neuilly-sur-Seine (France), entrusted to SUEZ, will be carried out with ten Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E.
The municipality of Neuilly-sur-Seine (near Paris) has decided to make extensive use of electric energy for household waste collection. In this context, SUEZ has renewed its confidence in the French manufacturer Renault Trucks by ordering ten additional 100% electric D Wide Z.E trucks.
After several months of operation of the first D Wide Z.E., SUEZ and Renault Trucks have drawn up a positive appraisal of their collaboration and are committed to collections that are more respectful of the quality of life of citizens. These new-generation refuse collection vehicles will collect waste between Neuilly-sur-Seine and, depending on the type of waste, Saint-Ouen or Gennevilliers, without emitting any pollutants or CO2.
This first assessment also allowed some technical adjustments to be made, such as programming the cabin heating and optimizing the equipment’s operation, including the number of compaction cycles, the number of shaking operations and the speed of the mechanisms.
