IVECO showcases its wide offer of vehicles for the Road Building, Urban Construction, Recycling and Quarry sectors on the CASE Construction Equipment stand (Hall 6 Stand E 042) at Intermat 2018.
IVECO presents its ranges of natural gas powered vehicles, answering President Macron's call for the conversion of the country's heavy truck fleets to gas at the European Commission's High-level Conference on Financing Sustainable Growth held in Brussels on March 22nd 2018: "It is also about committing resolutely to a transformation of the transport sector, through a widespread use of electric and hydrogen vehicles and the conversion of heavy freight to gas."
The new Stralis X-WAY truck developed for construction logistics is the perfect answer for the ongoing boom in construction driven by the Grand Paris project. On display is its natural gas version, ideal for operating in Paris due to the city's focus on curbing emissions.
IVECO is taking part in the international exhibition for construction and infrastructure Intermat 2018 from the 23rd to the 28th April at the Parc des Expositions in Paris-Nord Villepinte, Paris. It is present on the CASE Construction Equipment stand, where it is showcasing its offering for every mission: Recycling, Urban, Road Building and Quarry.
IVECO: the right vehicle for every mission
The brand is presenting at the show the Stralis X-WAY, the new range specifically developed for construction logistics and urban service missions, which provides the perfect crossing for on-road applications requiring off-road mobility – taking the mission-oriented approach to the extreme. It combines IVECO's best fuel-efficiency and safety technologies with the renowned off-road robustness of its toughest vehicles to deliver high productivity with best-in-class payload and outstanding Total Cost of Ownership.
The area dedicated to Recycling highlights how IVECO and CASE offer a complementary range of products that make a perfect combination to achieve a circular economy based on the generation of bio-methane from waste. On display in this area is a Stralis X-WAY Hook Lifter, ideal for the recycling industry with its outstanding manoeuvrability, compact overall dimensions, ground clearance, traction and big payload.
For the Urban sector, IVECO is presenting its sustainable Light Commercial Vehicles and trucks featuring its advanced alternative traction technologies, the natural gas powered Daily Blue Power – International Van of the Year 2018 – and the Stralis X-WAY NP (Natural Power). The brand is at the forefront of the industry with its pioneering sustainable solutions, which are increasingly in demand because of the fight against Climate Change and the issue of clean air in urban areas.
Pierre Lahutte, IVECO Brand President, said: "IVECO's commitment to supporting the energy transition has driven us to pioneer sustainable technologies, resulting in a full offering of alternative traction vehicles. At a time when municipalities are putting in place traffic restrictions and stringent emissions regulations to address the issue of air quality for their citizens, our natural gas powered vehicles give construction businesses a competitive advantage, especially when bidding for work in city centres."
The Stralis X-WAY NP on display in the urban area, combined with a CIFA electric mixer, is the first electric concrete mixer on a Bio-CNG truck. This vehicle not only delivers the advantages of extremely quiet operation and PM and CO2 emissions close to zero, but it also offers excellent operational features with an outstanding concrete load capacity of 8m3 – a capacity in line with the best diesel chassis.
The Stralis X-WAY operates in a sector where payload is key, and in this respect it raises the stakes with the biggest payload in the segment. Its Super Loader version on an 8x4 chassis developed for concrete mixer applications weights in at less than 8,845 kg, taking the customers' payload to new heights: it can carry 355 kg more load than the best vehicle certified by independent certification body UTAC.
The new Daily Blue Power, which has been crowned "International Van of the Year 2018", can access jobsites located in city centres round the clock, freeing construction businesses from the constraints of environmental regulations with its winning combination of technology, low emissions and environmental impact, high performance and efficiency.
This new product family is IVECO's Sustainability champion, delivering urban access with no limitation and giving customers the choice of three technologies: the Compressed Natural Gas powered Daily Hi-Matic Natural Power; the zero-emission Daily Electric and the Daily Euro 6 RDE 2020 Ready, the most advanced diesel technology in the industry.
On display at the Intermat show, the Daily Hi-Matic Natural Power in the unique version of 7.2 ton Gross Vehicles Weight which allows a payload of up to 4,9 tons and a body length up to 6.4 meters with its 5.100 mm wheelbase. Its advanced sustainable technologies are combined with the historical strengths of the multi-award winning Daily family, which has built a solid reputation for its robustness, versatility, performance and durability.
For the Road Building sector, IVECO is showing a Stralis X-WAY NP model, powered by the brand's industry leading natural gas technology, which offers a further environmental advantage combined with the payload and performance benefits of the range – a benefit for construction logistics operations in urban centres with restrictions on diesel vehicles and job sites operating 24/7 with noise constraints.
In the Quarry segment area of the stand, IVECO is displaying two vehicles: the Astra HD9 8x6 Euro VI and a Trakker, both in dumper configuration.
The IVECO Astra range of vehicles is designed for heavy off-road applications in oil & gas, mining, quarrying, heavy construction and heavy haulage. Every single detail, from the high performance driveline, simple design electronics, has been developed to deliver the highest levels of performance, strength and reliability in the toughest jobs.
At Intermat IVECO is introducing the new HD9 86.50 Euro VI featuring a full automatic transmission – a configuration that confirms the Off-Road DNA of the IVECO Astra product range with performances comparable to those of quarry and mining dumpers of the same payload, depending on the mission.
The Trakker is engineered to work in all weathers and in all terrains – even the most extreme off-road conditions and combines robustness, reliability and efficiency with technology. The Trakker has repeatedly proved its legendary strength and durability on the most difficult terrains of the Dakar Rally.
IVECO will also offer dynamic tests of several vehicles of the Stralis X-WAY range on the CASE Construction Equipment site in Monthyon, including a vehicle equipped with the new Hi-Traction system as well as vehicles in tipper, mixer and crane configurations.
