BEV is a pioneer in technology that enables fully electric automated RCV operation, compared to current technologies that adapt a traditional hydraulic body to a battery-powered chassis. RCV BEVs can be configured to be completely self-powered with their own batteries for conventional diesel, compressed natural gas (“CNG”) or electric chassis, and can also be integrated into the electric chassis to use a common battery pack . An RCV using BEV’s technology can complete a full ten-hour route on a single overnight charge, while packing ten tons of legal payload, and still have a battery charge to spare. Additionally, the use of electric RCVs offers waste haulers and their municipal waste customers a new, technologically and economically viable tool for sustainability initiatives.
“Heil has long been recognized as a pioneer in alternative fuel technologies, starting with our CNrG® CNG tailgate offering and mounting of Heil hydraulic bodies on electric chassis,” said ESG President, Pat Carroll. “The relationship with Claude Boivin and BEV fits perfectly with Heil’s goal of bringing innovative designs to improve efficiency and productivity.”
“With the advent of RCV body electrification, the need for hydraulic power is eliminated, reducing the environmental impact and a significant component of the cost of truck bodies,” said BEV President, Claude Boivin. “With this fully electric body, maintenance costs are reduced, NOx emissions – when paired with a diesel chassis – are reduced and overall energy consumption is reduced. When paired with an electric chassis, BEV technology enables RCV with virtually zero emissions.”
“Heil is part of Environmental Solutions Group – and it’s not just a name for us,” Carroll said. “The introduction of the Heil Electric Body is the next step in our evolutionary process to develop products and services that enable our customers to have a positive impact on our environment today while fulfilling their important societal function of economical and efficient manner.
Concurrent with the acquisition, BEV and Heil have entered into a business partnership under which BEV will manufacture RCV bodies for the markets of Canada and France under the BEV brand, while RCV bodies for the rest of the world markets will be manufactured and supported by Heil.
Heil and BEV will also collaborate on the development of future electric waste collection technologies.
