The Municipality of Guaymallén, Province of Mendoza, has begun a 30-day trial of a new Scania waste collection truck, as part of a pilot test related to caring for the environment. It is the P280 model of the Green Efficiency line, distinguished not only for being agile and operational but also for being the first of its kind in Mendoza to run on natural gas. The vehicle will help reduce polluting and noise emissions, as well as to lower operational costs.
With this, Guaymallén becomes the first city in the province to carry out this experience, which means another contribution to its commitment to protect the environment. “Our purpose is to lead the change towards a sustainable transportation system and that is why we celebrate that the Municipality of Guaymallén is committed to cleaner energy for waste collection in the city,” said Sandro Milazzotto, Manager of Scania in the Cuyo Region.
Regarding its technical features, the new CNG truck has a rear-loading Scorza brand mounted box, with a capacity of 21 m3. It has a short front cabin, driving position with adjustable steering wheel, 5-inch touch infotainment, adjustable seat with pneumatic suspension, third passenger seat, instrument panel, climate control and heating.
In addition, it has daytime running lights with LED DRL and position lights, EBS electronic brake control system, hydraulic auxiliary-retarder brake, advanced emergency braking, lane departure alert, adaptive cruise control and cruise control with active prediction.
