Temperature-controlled hybrid for Norbert Dentressangle

Norbert Dentressangle has just taken delivery of its second Mercedes-Benz Atego BlueTec hybrid truck bodied for temperature-controlled goods.

This 12-tonner will be operated from Norbert’s Miramas site delivering chilled and frozen food. The Atego BlueTec hybrid reduces CO2 emissions by 25%, and meets Piek noise limits.

The 160kW, 4.8-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine is combined with a 44kW water-cooled electric motor installed between the engine and the six-speed automatic gearbox. The two engines can function in parallel or separately. If the battery is charged, the truck operates solely on electric. The diesel engine runs continuously to power  steering, braking, etc. The diesel takes over when necessary through a solenoid-type clutch. The batteries are recharged during braking or deceleration. The hybrid drive system weighs 350kg.
