Dyson Energy Services gets 20 new Iveco Daily vans 04 February 2013

West Yorkshire-based Dyson Energy Services has grown its domestic heating division with the addition of 20 new Iveco Daily 35S11 vans.

The new 3.5-tonne Dailys, built on a 3,300mm wheelbase, join a fleet of more than 200 commercial vehicles – with a further 15 Daily vans expected to follow soon.

Supplied by Northern Commercials, the van delivery marks the first of the latest generation of Daily van to enter operation with Dyson Energy, which has been a major operator of Iveco vehicles for over a decade.

"We've been running Dailys for years, as they are reliable, competitive on fuel and the perfect size for our business," explains Ian Morrall, director of Dyson Energy Services.

"They are also popular with drivers – especially these latest models, which have added comforts and an improved driving position."

Each of the vans is powered by a 2.3-litre FPT Industrial engine capable of up to 106bhp between 2,700 and 3,900rpm, and up to 270 Nm of torque between 1,800 and 2,600rpm, driven through a five-speed synchromesh gearbox.

Iveco's current Daily sees interior noise reduced by 5dB during the most common operating conditions (between 1,600 and 2,000rpm).

Drivers will also benefits from interior upgrades such as a new adjustable steering column, and an enhanced dashboard, offering improved readability of the instrument panel.

The 12m³ vans will be spread across Dyson's network of nine depots and will remain in operation for five years, clocking up around 30,000km a year with a two-man crew.
