ARC orders electric trucks for Copenhagen
Truck manufacturer Scania, part of the Traton Group, will deliver at least 78 all-electric L-series trucks to Amager Resource Center (ARC) in Copenhagen. The municipal waste company’s order also includes an option for a further 23 electric trucks as well as repair and maintenance contracts for eight to ten years.
The vehicles ordered are at least 72 refuse collection vehicles with another 19 as an option, six box trucks with another four as an option, and one hook lift truck with a second one as an option.
Two of Scania’s first L-series vehicles were already delivered in December 2021. The rest of the fleet is to follow during 2022 and the first half of 2023.
In May last year, the City of Copenhagen already ordered 15 electric refuse collection trucks from Scania. This is part of the city’s plan to achieve climate neutrality by 2025 and to procure at least 100 all-electric refuse collection vehicles by 2025, which – with this new order – may soon be achieved.
This fleet transition has been accompanied by the appointment of ARC for waste collection in Copenhagen. The company has taken over the operation and collection of household waste in Copenhagen and is gradually integrating the all-electric refuse vehicles into the fleet.
“It was important for us, that the trucks have a high level of safety and new innovative safety solutions. Scania also offered comprehensive training and education including standby service in combination with a strong service network which ensures high uptime,” says Jacob Hartvig Simonsen, Managing Director, ARC.
