WHALE SET TO MAKE BIG SPLASH AT PAWRS
Whale Tankers aims to put on a marked show of strength at this year’s PAWRS – the Plant and Waste Recycling Show – with its biggest ever exhibition product display. Whale Tankers, the specialist manufacturer to the waste and cleaning industries, will be parading a seven strong vehicle line-up, in addition to proudly showing its newly adopted and refined corporate identity that centres on the themes, “Natural Selection” and “Change Through Evolution”.
Chosen to demonstrate the company’s ongoing innovative approach to product development whilst emphasising the diversity of end use applications, the exhibits will be headed by Whale Tankers’ increasingly popular recycler, the KaiserWhale. Complete with three compartment tanker bodywork providing a carrying capacity of 13,300 litres, the KaiserWhale will feature on an MAN TGS.26.440 6 x 4 rigid chassis.
Also headlining at the show will be three GullyWhales – one of which is Whale’s first ever GullyWhale tanker produced 40 years ago. Painstakingly restored to its former glory and equipped with its the original Ford D Series chassis, Genesis – as it is affectionately known – is set to be a real showstopper. A versatile all rounder and popular with many municipal operators, two of the latest generation GullyWhale Plus tankers will also figure prominently.
Serving to highlight a number of improved performance and health and safety related features and benefits that now feature on GulllyWhale Plus, visitors will get the chance to explore the workings and features of both an MVC (medium volume combination) and HVC (high volume combination) unit. After the show the HVC will enter service with Nottingham City Council.
Proving that big is not always beautiful, Whale will also be featuring a bespoke low volume combination tanker that has been engineered to provide maximum payloads. Designed for use within the confines of inner-city precincts, the 2400 litre tanker features the Euro 5, 5.2 tonne Multicar Fumo 4 x 2 with a demountable body system.
Completing the Whale’s on display in Paignton will be two VacuumWhales. Alongside a non-hazardous rigid tanker featuring A DAF FAD 85 32 tonne gvw chassis in the livery of new Whale customer, Surrey–based Hydro Cleansing Limited is a frameless VacuumWhale tanker built to ADR class 3, 6.1 and 8. Plated at 44-tonnes and with a capacity of 29,500, the VacuumWhale will feature the livery of Enviroco – one of the leading hazardous waste management companies in the UK.
Commenting on Whale’s expectations for the show, Managing Director, Mark Warmington said: “PAWRS is an ideal platform for Whale, as it presents us with the opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities direct to the end users of our products. Not surprisingly, therefore, we are electing to parade our largest ever product line-up at this year’s show. This serves to demonstrate how active we as a company continue to be within the field of product innovation and how optimistic we are of the future.”
Commenting on the decision to specify their latest Whale tanker, Anglian Water’s Fleet Manager, Nigel Allen said: “We continue to receive excellent service from Whale. They supply the ultimate product in terms of build quality and reliability, whilst providing outstanding levels of support in the field via the WhaleCare programme.”
