Smart City relies on sweeping Technology from Schmidt
New Swingo 200+ Koanda and Cleango 500 for Amsterdam
Amsterdam is considered a smart city and has initiated a showcase project for the entire Netherlands, e.g. the Climate Street. By 2040, Amsterdam wants to be one of the world's top cities in terms of sustainability. By 2025, all public transport is to be emission-free. No wonder, then, that great importance is also attached to efficiency and clean technologies when it comes to the vehicles and equipment of the city's maintenance depot. In the last tender for sweepers, for example, great emphasis was placed on a maximum of CO2-reducing technology. The innovative technology of the Schmidt Swingo 200+ with Koanda system convinced those responsible, as did the big brother, the Schmidt Cleango 500. The first of the two sweeper models have now been handed over to their new place of use, with more to follow in the course of the next few years.
The ideal team
The Schmidt Swingo 200+ Koanda is the perfect answer to meeting the city’s high technical requirements and ambitious environmental targets. The ASH Group also offered a “carefree” package for the entire lifespan of the machines. This was based on a workload scenario and a detailed action plan.
Information at the right place at the right time
The sweepers from Schmidt are continuously monitored while they are operating. This means that any deviations or faults are often already displayed before the driver notices them. The service engineer from Aebi Schmidt Netherlands is then notified immediately, can respond directly and carry out the required service or repairs on the sweeper during the regular service life. The service notifications for regular servicing are likewise automatically forwarded on. This enables efficient planning without interfering with day-to-day operations or any unnecessary downtimes.
The right eye for innovations
The responsible officials in Amsterdam also appreciated the patented “Koanda system” with a pressurised water recirculation system.
The combination of the pressurised water recirculation system and the Koanda air circulation system for which a patent is pending reduces the emission of harmful particulate matter by up to 95%. Combined with a new, intelligent pressurised water recirculation system, the machine becomes even more efficient and eco-friendly than ever before – the need for time-consuming stops to refill water is eliminated, making extended sweeping operations possible.
The pressurised water recirculation system ensures reliable and low-wear collection of dirt thanks to large amounts of water in the suction system. Furthermore, the optimum water recovery system guarantees a compacted and semi-solid debris. The efficient handling of resources is environmentally friendly while the optimum utilisation ot the hopper capacity is ensured.
