6 Key Benefits of The Waste Management and Waste Collection Vehicle

  1. CAPACITY – As mentioned above the capacity of the vehicle in terms of its rear bin allows for a more effective and productive work schedule. The combined 2.8 cubic metre capacity as well as the 650ks loading capacity speaks volumes in terms of Alkè’s engineering to provide top performance for the waste collection unit.
  2. AUTONOMY – With up to 200km of Autonomy – the range of the vehicle gives you peace of mind that you can arrange longer shift times to complete the jobs set out more efficiently.
  3. ATTACHMENT – Rear Bin Lifter Attachment – The bin lift attachment featured gives the option of 120, 240 or 360 litres depending on the needs of your business.
  4. 100% ELECTRIC- Zero emissions emitted meaning that operating in restricted zoning allowed
  5. SILENT OPERATION- Due the vehicle being electric, the electric traction can allow this waste collection unit to work inside silently.
  6. COMPACT – Across the ATX range the compact nature of these vehicles makes them ideal for narrow streets and cities – making it perfect for waste management.

Regenerative Braking System

This is applicable throughout the ATX range. Concerning the waste management and waste collection vehicle this important as the factor of energy recovery is exceedingly important for stop and go movements for this type of vehicle. The regenerative braking system that Alkè has designed and implemented, the system increase the ranges up to 30%. Within Europe, councils are the number one customer for Alkè for this type of vehicle because of this factor.

The Advantages of The Waste Management and Waste Collection Vehicle with RBS

  • Common stop and go movement
  • Savings of up to 30% in energy consumption
  • Increased battery autonomy because of the energy consumption
  • Maximum torque of the electric motor – providing maximum efficiency.

How Does RBS Work?

Due to years of research and development, Alkè have done their due diligence to discover the best electric motor to suit their vehicle. The latest generation of brakes has discovered due to research and development, that the motor can work as a dynamo, sending the all the energy to the drive batteries. Due to this development, it makes average consumption lower (up to 30%), allows for a higher autonomy to be possible. This highlights the advantage of ‘the stop and go’ movement as it allows for more efficiency in autonomy and the saving of energy consumption.

Why Choose An Electric Waste Collection Unit over Petrol/Diesel?

Alkè really have done their research. In which they have tested this comparison to truly see the models effectiveness. Overall it was founded that the series of waste that a petrol vehicle itself generated compared to an electric vehicle was much greater than an electric choice.

Combining the factors of; brake wear, noise pollution, energy efficiency and stationary pollution due to the nature of the petrol/diesel vehicle – electric is the definitive choice.

The silent, efficient, and brake recovery factors make a waste management and waste collection vehicle a better choice for industries in waste management. In terms for saving costs, maintenance, productivity, autonomy and environmental issues due to the element of the regenerative braking system alone is a deciding factor in itself.

Why Not Try the COMBI Version?

This is a version may be a more suitable option if you are specific to urban areas and require dual needs to suit your purpose. Below you can see the benefits of choosing a two COMBI set up to suit multiple environments as well as the extras that each unit gives to create a highly functional waste management and waste collection vehicle.

Multiple Environments suited for The Waste Management and Waste Collection Vehicle

Combining the two COMBI of the waste collection body and the pressure washer COMBI. These two features make it a perfect configuration for urban areas. The one vehicle can complete numerous tasks without the need for two vehicles. Whilst the waste is being collected, the cleaning of roads, sidewalks, walls and other surfaces can take place simultaneously. With the added bonus of the 20M hose fitted as standard with the pressure washer COMBI. The hose is highly effective reaching in hard to reach areas and rolled back up on the reel for storage on the vehicle.

Twice the COMBI - Twice the Capacity

The pressure washer is electric with the option of detergents. The 600L tank allows for a 8 litres/per minute flow. Heavy duty cleaning is where you can see the maximum benefit of the pressure washer. The added COMBI of the pressure washer gives you the ability for cleaning encrustations on pavements for example.

The waste collection body itself is an anti corrosive aluminum, lasting longer as well as LED beacon for standards and road compliance. The combination of the two elements increases overall efficiency in different tasks.
