Hyster to attract potential fuel savers at TOC Europe

Hyster Europe will demonstrate ways of achieving fuel savings of up to 20% at TOC Europe 2012 (Terminal Operations Conference and Exhibition), from 12-14 June 2012, at the Antwerp Expo in Belgium on stand C6.
Chris van der Werdt, Sales Manager for Hyster Big Trucks, says “At TOC last year, we told the market that it is possible to achieve up to 20% fuel savings on Hyster Big Trucks. This year, we return with proof from busy terminal operators that have successfully introduced new Hyster ReachStackers, empty container handlers or forklift trucks.”
In November 2010, Hyster unveiled a new range of container handlers and forklift trucks above 16 tonnes lifting capacity, featuring new Cummins engines and new system technologies to ensure full Tier 4i / Stage IIIB compliance and significant fuel savings. In addition to Cummins engine technologies, Hyster optimised truck functions to provide intelligent engine speed control, including hibernate idle, load sensing hydraulics and demand sensitive cooling systems.
Chris adds “We went from promise to proof. Our claims are not theoretical, our customers are saying that the savings are visible at the pump and in the reduced frequency of refuelling. What’s more, we have achieved it through EGR technology so the operator fills the fuel tank as normal. There is no additional Urea or AdBlue as found in competitor SCR solutions.”
TOC is the global forum for Ports, Terminal Operators, Shipping Lines, 3PLs and BCOs.
