Veolia has taken on three CNG-powered Iveco Daily Natural Power vans after winning a new contract with the London Borough of Camden.
The vehicles were selected for their ultra-clean gas-powered engines and will carry specialist equipment for removing graffiti.
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, but produce 12% fewer NOx emissions, 76% less particulate matter and up to 95% less CO2 emissions using bio-methane.
The vehicles will refuel from Veolia’s new CNG refuelling station situated at its Alperton depot.
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."
