ZAGREB, 10 October 2020 – Street cleaners in the Croatian capital Zagreb have had their fleet boosted with new electric tricycles. On Thursday, 30 new electric tricycles, which, together with 296 mechanically powered tricycles and 6 electric tricycles procured in 2017, will now be used to maintain the cleanliness of public areas in the city of Zagreb.
“The new electric tricycles are a 100 percent Croatian product and innovation of the Zagreb company Viking d.o.o. The new tricycle is a combination of a truck and an environmentally friendly vehicle, ideal for transporting bins of small waste on busy city streets in a short time,” Zagreb Holding said.
Street cleaners will test the new electric tricycles throughout the year on a variety of operational tasks and in all operating conditions. The tricycles can be adjusted to carry a load of up to 500 kilograms and can reach a speed of 25 km / h, and after charging they can withstand up to 6 hours of driving. Ž
They enable greater mobility and they are also characterised by the ability to overcome hills under load.
The value of this investment is HRK 790,000.
Last year, Zagreb’s Čistoća cleaned and washed 986,643,772 square meters of public traffic areas.
“Of this, our employees manually cleaned 634.3 million square meters, which is more than 1.7 million square meters of cleaned public traffic areas per day,” Zagreb Holding concluded.
