Solution:

ACETECH ECO-RUN

CHALLENGE

Engine Idling as a method for charging emergency service vehicle equipment can be overused and expensive. ACETECH™ continuously monitors the Middlesex-London Emergency Service fleet + identified exceptionally high idling times. This fuel consuming activity needed to be resolved to prevent unnecessary costs and to create an eco-fleet.

SOLUTION

ACETECH™ recommended installing an eco-friendly module that reduces engine idling called ACETECH™ ECO-RUN. This system automatically manages engine idling. It monitors the battery levels and temperatures of the driver and patient compartment and when the conditions are correct, the system will automatically shut off the engine, therefore reducing unnecessary idling. The engine automatically restarts if it drops below optimum conditions, so the vehicle is always ready to go.

RESULT

ACETECH installed the ECO-RUN Module in a fleet of 37 Middlesex emergency service vehicles in 2017. Analysis below has shown improvements for the full fleet per annum:

  • Engine Idling (-76%)

  • Fuel Savings (-49,284L)

  • Vehicle Off Road (-3hrs)

  • Cost Savings ($64,069)

  • Carbon Savings (223,469lbs)

  • i.e. per vehicle ($1,732)(6,040lbs)

SUCCESS
A 76% REDUCTION IN IDLING TIMES
