Recently Infineon, a longtime customer of Kinetics, published an article on our use of electric vehicles for our facility management services. The below article is specifically about Infineon’s site in Germany.
New Vehicles in the Electric Fleet
Typical for vehicles of its kind, the car glides over the asphalt very quietly. Electromobility is thus constantly on the road to success. The new tugboat has been on the Infineon site for a few months now.
Kinetics regularly sets new environmental goals. This year, the old van should be replaced by an environmentally, friendly model. The replacement of the VW Caddy will immediately release less CO2 at the site. Therefore, the air is no longer burdened by the diesel engine of its predecessor. Additionally, the reduction of the noise is a big advantage of the electric vehicle.
Kinetics has been using electric forklifts for several years now; adding the Linde tug as the latest electric vehicle. This model offers numerous possibilities; it’s also being used at airports. The tractor pulls up to 25 tons of towing capacity. Its two 10 kW three-phase traction motors accelerate it to 25 km/h. Considering the speed regulation in the location, this is entirely appropriate for its use.
Manfred Jackermeier speaks to his colleagues in the new electric tugboat.
“The tugboat is fully utilized,” reports Manfred Jackermeier, site manager of Kinetics Regensburg. He can be proud of the new purchase. With the electric vehicle, for example, the orange troughs in the “wastewater system 27” can be collected much easier. Since the new hall 17W, there is no need for a truck; the agile tug is all that is needed. In addition to the trough change, it is also used to collect residual waste. The loading area also offers enough space for small transport runs. Kinetics innovation with the goals of emission reduction, additional use and full-time utilization of vehicles/tools lead to satisfied customers.
