Vision Techniques installs safety equipment on UK’s first EV skip transporters

Waste recycling specialist Recycling Lives has installed Vision Techniques’ safety equipment on its new electric skip transporter trucks. 

The two 19-tonne E-Tech DZE trucks were designed and developed in collaboration with Renault Trucks and mark the start of Recycling Lives’ journey in decarbonising the company’s entire fleet. 

The Renault Trucks E-Tech DZE have been fitted with Vision Techniques‘ industry-leading Turnaware, Turnalarm, video recording systems and telematics. The all-electric vehicles will be used in daily operations, servicing commercial and household clients.

Eddie Hollingsworth, Head of Transport Operations at Recycling Lives, said: ‘Our industry is fast-paced and is at the forefront of ensuring collectively we minimise our impact on the environment. Moving to a decarbonised fleet is one way we can do that, but we also need to ensure that safety is paramount.’
