The 30,000th NITE no-idle system from Bergstrom was manufactured last week, the company announced. According to Bergstrom, the 30,000 units have resulted in a 113.7 million gal. per year reduction of fuel usage.
The 30,000th unit was a NITE Phoenix system, produced on the company’s newest assembly line, a state-of-the-art line incorporating a MicroFlow system leak detection and Human Machine Interface (HMI) monitors that display ProE CAD models and standardized work instructions for all NITE models produced on the line.
“The demand for our NITE no-idle systems has increased dramatically over the past year. It was only in May of 2011 that we celebrated the production of our 20,000th unit – that’s 10,000 units in less than 10 months,” said Bill Gordon, vice president, aftermarket and NITE sales. “Our dedicated team is very proud of this milestone and our contributions towards reducing harmful emissions and improving driver comfort on the road.”
The NITE system has been in production since 2003. It is a battery-operated system. Also in the NITE line is the NITE Plus and NITE day cab units.
