Vecar, sustainability and the environment:
putting words into practice
Sustainability impacts our daily lives and future generations. Vecar operates in a sector in which it is essential that everyone does their part to safeguard the environment. We work with this constantly in mind, taking concrete action.
In 2018, we regenerated 800 batteries, doubling their life cycle and further improving environmental impacts, producing less waste by reducing transport for new battery deliveries and therefore lowering particulate and CO2 emissions.
Reduced water consumption
Respect for the environment can and must also be guaranteed with traditional technology. Batteries are available with a special configuration of elements that combined with a traditional rectifier decrease top-up regularity from once a week to once every four weeks. If a HIFI rectifier is added, this interval is reduced to once a month, and with insufflation, once every 13 weeks! Water is a precious commodity. Make the right choice!
High-performance battery chargers
Choosing the right charger is far more important than it seems. The charger affects various aspects of energy management:
- Energy costs
- Charging times
- Battery life
- Average useful life of battery
- Maintenance costs
- Environmental impact
A properly configured rectifier using modern technology allows savings of up to 25% on recharging costs and over 50% on consumption of distilled water. Recharging a 48 V 600 ah battery (the most widely used) with a high-frequency rectifier means avoiding 675 kg of CO2 emissions each year, the same amount that a car would emit over 5000 km.
We also support environmental protection through our range of forklifts.Discover more
Respecting the environment at the wheel of a forklift
The Blue-Q intelligent autopilot system: the vehicle's Blue-Q power-saving mode (blue button) is activated with a single touch. Optimisation of the motor's efficiency curve makes it possible to identify energy-saving phases, without reducing operational performance. This allows a saving of 10–20%, depending on the usage profile and features of the vehicle.
