Reduces fuel consumption and CO2 output significantly.
The EcoNord electric bin lift requires no engine power to operate. It operates while the vehicle engine is at idle, whereas hydraulic bin lifts require the engine speed to substantially increase to provide power for the vehicle’s hydraulic pump. Fuel consumption is therefore substantially reduced when operating with an electric bin lift. Depending on how often the collection body’s sweeper / packer blade is engaged, evidence collected over many years shows that the potential average fuel consumption reduction for each vehicle range from 8% to 15%, saving thousands of pounds in fuel costs and reducing demand on future supplies.The fuel savings also reduces the vehicle’s CO2 emissions by several tonnes per truck annually.
With an average consumption of 90 liters pr 100 km, and over 100 km driving per day, every lift eliminates the equivalent of two to three passenger cars in terms of CO2 emission.
More Flexible. The lifts can quickly be adapted to single lift + open back for mixed rounds, or lifts removed completely for bag only rounds. More maneuverability for Fleet Managers. Bin lift operation fully programmable for operational speeds, top pause times, intelligent packer signal, shake intensity and other parameters.
Simple Maintenance – One moving part, less weight, more stability, less cost.
Good accessibility of all mechanical and electrical components. Reduced maintenance requirements as the EcoNord electric bin lift uses absolutely no hydraulics whatsoever; remote diagnostics for increased uptime; and many others features.
Quietest bin lift available. There are no hydraulic rams, pipes, fluids or electrically driven hydraulic pumps involved. The Isbjörn is completely and totally electric in operation, as well as being operationally the quietest bin lift available on the market today at only 45dB, due to the fact that the vehicle engine need not rev up to power the lift and can remain at idle. Extending collection times as a result without noise-related complaints is now a real possibility.
Healthier work environment. This quietness, along with automatic obstruction detection to protect operators during collection, means EcoNord electric bin lifts help provide the safest possible waste collection working environment. There is no emission while operating electric lifts. Long time collectors have also traditionally suffered from hearing loss because of high noise level, which is not the case operating electric lifts.
