East Kilbride-based Enviro-Clean has put a unique Volvo FH / Kaiser Whale recycling tanker into service. In operation, the vehicle will also benefit two key charities, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Water Aid. The 32-tonne GVW 8×4 rigid features a 6400mm wheelbase, 460hp Euro-6 engine and a Globetrotter cab.
Employing over 100 full time staff and operating a fleet of 85 vehicles, Enviro-Clean was founded 20 years ago. On call 24/7/365. The new Volvo FH-460 8×4 rigid is fitted with the first Kaiser Whale Continuous Dirty Water Recycler in Scotland. The three compartment stainless steel tank has capacities for 2,800 litres of clean water, 1,000 litres of overspill and 11,750 litres of debris or sludge. In use the truck recycles clean water, whilst separating any sludge safely into its holding tank.
The new Volvo FH-460 rigid will serve as Enviro-Clean’s flagship vehicle. The truck’s unique presence prompted Managing Director, Jim McLuskey to feature two charity organisations on each of the Globetrotter cab’s sides. Applied by Zero Seven Graphics of Clydebank, the offside carries a striking pink dominated design for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, whilst the nearside is finished in the white, blue and black hues of Water Aid. Enviro-Clean will donate a proportion of the new Volvo FH460’s operating costs to both charities.
