The CityWhale – a new range of lightweight vehicles designed for city jetting and suction operation – makes its debut at the show. The new range will be available in three versions – the Micro (3.2-3.5t), the Midi (3.5-4.5t) and the Major (7.5t) – with both the Micro and Midi models breaking cover at the show – one featured on our stand and one by the front entrance to the show.

The new CityWhale range joins the already well established CompactWhale range – an example of which is also on display. This van mounted jetting unit is currently available on VW Transporter, Mercedes Vito, Ford Transit, Renault Traffic and Toyota Hiace chassis, but is also available as a free standing unit, as displayed on the show stand.

The Whale Medium Volume Combination (MVC) is the workhorse of many a liquid waste tanker fleet and the Euro 6 vehicle on the show stand, destined for service with TIP, demonstrates the performance, environmental and health and safety features that make the Whale MVC class of 2014 a true thoroughbred. In particular, the show vehicle has been fitted with Whale’s new ESN Environmental Package.

Showcasing our capabilities at the heavy duty end of the market, the final vehicle on display on the Whale Tankers’ CV Stand is a high specification KaiserWhale Continuous Dirty Water Recycler, built on a 32 tonne GVW Volvo FM Euro 5 chassis and shortly about to enter service with Essex-based operator, Flowline.

The KaiserWhale brings together the high performance jetting and vacuum operations with a fully integrated filtration system, providing continuous dirty water recycling – by effectively reusing dirty water for jetting, it maximises time spent working, while minimising time wasted tapping into clean water supplies.

Specifically designed to be a multi-purpose heavy duty contractor’s vehicle, the KaiserWhale is an effective, powerful jetter and sewer cleaner that is also available in 16, 18, 26 and 44 tonnes configurations, as well as demountable variants.

The KaiserWhale has one of the most comprehensive specifications of any vehicle of its type and, thanks to Whale’s extensive engineering capability, can be tailored to the specific requirements of operators like Flowline.

“The contrast between the CompactWhale and new CityWhale ranges and the MVC and KaiserWhale vehicles on display at the CV show this year demonstrates our ability to deliver effective, fully compliant solutions across a very broad range of operational requirements,” said Whale Tankers’ Commercial Director Chris Anderson. “In short, no job is either too big or too small for a Whale”.

He added, “Right across our product range customerfocused engineering quality and performance can be found, together with close attention to health and safety compliance and environmental issues. Another common denominator is the complete support proposition – be it training, parts or service – that comes with every product bearing the Whale name.”

Please come along and say hello to us on the Whale stand (4H60) in Hall 4 at the CV show 29th April – 1st May at the NEC Birmingham.
