Engine Stop Start Technology

Would you like to reduce your fleet’s fuel consumption, maintenance costs and emissions?

Refuse vehicles typically spend more than 50% of their operating time immobile yet 25% of the total fuel consumption occurs during this time.

We have teamed up with Effenco Hybrid Solutions, Montreal, Canada to bring their patented ‘Engine Stop Start’ technology to the UK. The system works by automatically turning the engine off when the truck is immobile and supplies alternative power to auxiliary systems such as bin lifts. Energy harvested from braking, topped up if needed with engine power, is used to restart the engine. And because the transmission remains engaged there is no delay in re-starting or accelerating the vehicle.
  • Average fuel savings of 25% per vehicle when collecting
  • Save up to 30 tonnes of carbon per vehicle per year
  • Reduce engine maintenance costs by 40% on average
  • Silent operation with engine off
  • Installed to new or retrofitted on virtually any truck configuration

The system is already in operation across North America offering impressive savings and environmental benefits.
