The new RCVs will operate out of the Silliot Hill civic amenity site in Kilcullen and will enable AES to provide a reliable, efficient, and professional service to its customers in Kildare and West Wicklow. This brings to over 60 vehicles that have been added to the AES Fleet in the past three years.
Commenting on these new improvements, Ciaran Brady, Head of Bord na Móna Resource Recovery said: “This investment in our fleet further underpins our commitment to providing a quality and efficient service for our customers. AES is committed to continually looking for advancements in our front-end waste collection service as well as our back-end waste recovery and recycling operations to ensure that we offer our customers an environmentally and responsible service.”
The new Kildare based fleet is equipped with a range of new safety features, as well as a number of other enhancements geared towards a greater environmentally efficient and quiet performance. These new RCVs feature Euro-6 engines that include an SCR post-treatment system for reducing emissions, as well as exhaust gases recirculation during engine start-up phases.
