 Municipal vehicles

Based on the Midlum and Renault Premium chassis types, PVI has developed various types of chassis adapted to the tasks involved in urban sanitation and services. In addition to the relevance of their environmental performance characteristics, these vehicles are configured in order to offer optimal productivity in light of the specific requirements for bodywork dedicated to these missions.

PVI Midlum CNG Range

The PVI Midlum’s narrow cabin and the outstanding manoeuvrability of its chassis enable it to access the narrowest streets. For town services applications, PVI has developed suitable CNG storage solutions enabling various Midlum chassis to be offered with the shortest possible wheelbases (from 3,070 mm):

  • 12 to 16t GVW
  • Chassis width of 2.24 to 2.43 m
  • 230 hp engine
  • Automatic or manual gearboxes
  • Specially configured for sanitation tasks (refuse collection trucks, street washers, suction sweepers, etc.)

Renault Premium CNG Range

The various Renault Premium CNG chassis offer all the performance characteristics of the heavy range for town distribution tasks. The 6x2*4 version (26t GVW) is equipped with a rear steering axle for optimal central city manoeuvrability. Depending on the range required, several CNG storage variants have been developed and approved:

  • 18 to 26t GVW
  • 4x2 or 6x2*4 chassis profiles
  • 300 hp engine
  • Automatic gearbox
  • Specially configured for sanitation tasks (refuse collection truck, crane, devices with lifting arms, etc.)

Midlum RCV, narrow track

Collection duties sometimes require accessing the tightest spots (narrow streets, historic city centres, specific thoroughfares). To fulfil these expectations, PVI has adapted the Renault Midlum chassis to a narrow version with increased loading capacities specially designed for the refuse collection truck model.

Expertise in original Renault Trucks as well as task-specific chassis types for uses under harsh conditions also enable PVI to offer its customers a narrow track 19 tonne offer, dedicated to refuse collection. PVI has therefore developped a Heavy Duty version of the Midlum.

Being fitted with a heavy section chassis and a double reduction drive axle equipped with pneumatic suspension, the Midlum 270.19 RCV, narrow gauge track offers mechanical robustness identical to what is offered by the Renault Premium heavy distribution ranges. Using mechanical components from the heavy range enables the Midlum 270.19 RCV to be supplied with a narrow track: the width is less than 2.40m at the rear wheels.

It is fitted with standard tyres, is not subject to speed restrictions, and is fully approved.
