RVS has a new premise that is strictly dedicated to the production of environmentally friendly, zero-emission vehicles for the refuse industry. The new location is based in Berkeley and will house an electrical conversion team of engineers.
This move comes just months after the launch of RVS's pioneering all-electric waste collection vehicle, which was developed in partnership with Dutch electric vehicle conversion specialists EMOSS. The e-One is powered by lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries, producing up to 280 kW of power with no independent charging system needed, and comes with a five-year/3,000 charging cycle battery warranty.
As part of RVS’s development strategy, the new site will allow the company to offer its all-electric driveline technology to the logistics and construction sectors, bringing them the same benefits already enjoyed by clients within the refuse sector. Offering reduced running costs compared to diesel vehicles, savings on maintenance with fewer moving parts, and the confidence that their fleets are future-proofed as local authorities across the country look to tackle air pollution.
EMOSS & RVS’s combined technology can re-power a wide range of vehicles, from light trucks ideal for smoothly navigating our busy cities to the heavy goods vehicles we all rely on for distribution across the country’s road network. Plus, with RVS’s comprehensive training for vehicle users and 24/7 support, this tried and tested technology will be the ideal investment for fleet operators across a whole range of industries.
Spencer Law, Managing Director, RVS said: “Our team is delighted with this move, which will allow us to offer our all-electric conversions to an even wider range of clients. We recognised straight away that the opportunity we developed with EMOSS could bring huge benefits for anyone operating a fleet with an eye on the future and now we have the capacity to extend our offering, helping even more businesses cut their emissions and do their bit for the planet while staying on the road.”
“We are pleased to be supporting partners with RVS in the UK. The announcement of these new additional premises demonstrates RVS commitment and contribution in assisting customers in reducing their emission levels across their fleets” Vernon Edwards, EV Development Manager
