Electrical Vehicles & Robotics
800 Super innovation and productivity initiatives have always gear towards the ambition to deploy the most technological advanced fleet for its waste management operations in Singapore.
With the commencement of the Public Waste Collection contract for Pasir Ris-Bedok in July 2018, the company took another bold commitment to introduce a fleet of Electrical Vehicle (EV) and Dual Compartment waste collection trucks. Together with the Side-loading waste collection vehicle introduced in the same year, 800 Super prides its fleet to be the most comprehensive and technologically advanced in Singapore.
As the world transportation system is streaming rapidly towards sustainable and reusable energy to power all its personal and mass transport systems, 800 Super embarks on the route to challenge its capability by deploying a fleet of industrial utility EVs for its waste collection operations.
The unchartered experiences and compiling industrial know-how will further anchor 800 Super's path in leading the Environmental Services industry towards a sustainable and circular economy.
Dual Compartment Rear End Loader
Similarly, with the introduction of the Dual Compartment Read End Loader (REL) vehicle, recyclable and garden wastes are quickly collected by deploying just one waste collection truck instead of two in the past operations.
Thus, enhancing productivity and reducing operating costs while minimising collection frequency, means less utility operation trucks on the road, cutting down pollutions and achieving lower carbon footprint deployments.
Side-loading Waste Collection Vehicle
In April 2018, 800 Super pave the way with a year-long trial under the National Environment Agency's industrial transformation map for the Environmental Services industry in the Public Waste Collection Ang Mo Kio-Toa Payoh sector. Instead of collecting recyclables in the conventional 660-litre bins, the new revolutionary 2,200-litre bins are introduced with the deployment of the side-loading waste collection truck.
First, with a bin that is 3X larger than the current 660-litre bin, collection frequency are greatly reduced thus, minimising carbon footprint in every ways.
Second, the side-loading operation is now handled by a robotic arm controlled within the truck cabin, thus, the collection process is now a one-man operation (OMO) instead of the previous three man team (1 driver and 2 attendants).
The rationally simple investment in technology effectively provide a reduction of crew requirement with a ratio of 1:3, a 70 percent reduction in manpower requirement, thereby, enhancing productivity and saving operation costs.
