The City of Bilbao has given a turn to the service of conservation and maintenance of gardens, introducing measures of saving and energy efficiency. The green initiatives include the incorporation of a new fleet composed of 44 more sustainable and environmentally friendly vehicles, which include 27 NGVs.
Conscious of the affections that the maintenance causes in the city, the contract that came into force about nine months ago contemplates the introduction of these vehicles that will join to the Area of Works, Services, Urban Rehabilitation and Public Space and that were acquired with a single goal: minimizing and compensating the CO2 emissions inherent in carrying out the tasks they have been assigned.
The garden service will mostly use CNG vehicles and EVs, of reduced or zero pollutant emission, both at CO2 and acoustic level. All this allows that the set of emissions has been reduced ostensibly.
Among the new vehicles there is a CNG crane truck, vans of different sizes, a CNG van with trailer, among other machinery.
