Rosenbauer GREEN Star™ Technology
Reduce Fuel Consumption
Nationally, 80% of runs are EMS or non-Fire related calls. Chassis diesel engines use up to 1.5 gallons of fuel per hour idling. Save up to 1.25 gallons of fuel using the GREEN Star idle reduction technology system. Our system maintains apparatus 12 volt system, 120 volt system and chassis heating and cooling systems when the fire pump is not engaged.
Meeting EPA Emission Standards
To comply with the EPA's revised emission standards, OEM chassis manufacturers are using Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) that can become clogged due to frequent idling. DPF service can cost as much as $5,000 per truck. Rosenbauer's GREEN Star system utilizes an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) to bypass the main chassis engine, reducing the strain on the DPF, saving thousands in fuel expenses and service fees.
Reduces operating costs
Fuel, oil changes, DPF service all can cost into the thousands. Start saving through the use of idle reduction technology by Rosenbauer.
