The city of Barcelona, Spain will use 73 Renault E-Tech D, D Wide, and D Wide LEC electric trucks for waste collection and maintenance that it has ordered and is launching soon to clean the streets of the Catalan capital.
Barcelona itself has made zero-emission trucks mandatory in its latest public tender covering municipal maintenance. With an order for 73 Renault electric trucks for cleaning and waste collection from CLD Sorigué, Urbaser and Valoriza.
These contracts are awarded in stages to several waste management subcontractors who share the same sustainability goals for the city. Waste collection companies CLD Sorigué, Urbaser and Valoriza (Sacyr Group) selected Renault Trucks to provide 73 electric trucks.
