Daily Natural Power vans, running on CNG, join customer’s street cleaning fleet in London
Basildon, January 3, 2018
IVECO has supplied three Daily Natural Power vans into Veolia, the UK’s largest waste management company. The vehicles were selected for their ultra-clean gas-powered engines and will carry specialist equipment for removing graffiti, as part of a new contract with the London Borough of Camden.
Supplied by Dunstable-based IVECO dealer Northern Commercials, all Daily Natural Power light commercials feature purpose-built spark ignition engines, which deliver performance comparable to a diesel in terms of power, torque and response. Running on compressed natural gas (CNG) means they produce 12 per cent fewer NOx emissions, 76 per cent less particulate matter and up to 95 per cent less CO2 emissions using bio-methane.
The vehicles will be in operation whenever demanded and are approximately 50 per cent quieter than their diesel equivalents; they will refuel from Veolia’s brand new CNG refuelling station situated at its Alperton depot which was built to service all the CNG vehicles in the Camden fleet.
Andrew Hope, Fleet Development Manager at Veolia, says: “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.”
Powered by a 3.0-litre natural gas engine, the Daily Natural Power 35S14 delivers 136 hp and up to 350 Nm of torque between 1,500 and 2,730 rev/min. The engine requires no AdBlue, particulate filter or exhaust gas recirculation and needs no after-treatment system maintenance. Together with fuel costs around 20 per cent lower than diesel, this helps to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and boost fleet efficiency.
IVECO’s Daily Natural Power range offers Veolia maximum flexibility, with the new vehicles potentially able to access underground parking areas without the limitations affecting some other alternative fuels. They also benefit from much of the same technology found within IVECO’s new Daily Blue Power LCV range, which has been named International Van of the Year 2018.
