Complete Coach Works Is Repowering 47 Refuse Trucks
Southern California’s Complete Coach Works is converting 47 refuse trucks to CNG for San Jose-based Garden City Sanitation. The repower job includes new 8.9-liter ISL G engines from Cummins Westport and a custom fuel tank system that will provide 75 DGE – diesel gallon equivalents.
Clean Energy Fuels is installing slow-fill compressed natural gas fueling equipment to support the updated fleet of year 2007 Autocar trucks, says Garden City GM Steve Jones.
“As a key feature of this project we were awarded, we committed to going the extra mile and developed a system that will allow us to frame-mount the CNG tanks in an effort to support Garden City Sanitation’s overall safe workplace programs,” CCW VP Macy Neshati said in a release.
Keep Them Off the Roof
“CCW believes that keeping mechanics and contracted tank inspectors off the roof of the trucks promotes a safer work environment and further sustains Garden City Sanitation’s commitment to the wellbeing of their employees.”
The aluminum tank system enclosure will be powder coated to match the color scheme of each truck, CCW says. “A new cooling system was also specially designed for these trucks.”
The vehicles have Labrie ASL bodies.
