24 trucks added for long distance operations
Breedon, a group which produces aggregates, cement, asphalt, ready-mixed concrete and specialist building products, has taken delivery of its first ever Renault trucks for its cement division. The 24 new T520 6x2 tractor units join a 50-strong fleet. A further expansion of Renault Trucks vehicles into the line-up is planned, the manufacturer said.
The vehicles are powered by a Euro 6 13-litre engine, producing 520hp and 2550Nm of torque and will be used for Breedon’s long distance cement operations in the UK. The trucks are also fitted with a bespoke fleet focus system and includes AI-powered VRU protection, with all-round camera coverage delivering active safety warnings in the cab and external cameras and digital display screens.
