Hong Kong District Cooling Starts Field Tests Of Nissan e-NV200
OCT 15 2014 BY MARK KANE
Hong Kong is yet another place where Nissan is demonstrating and testing e-NV200 before launching the model.
This time, the compact van went to Veolia’s subsidiary, Hong Kong District Cooling Company Limited.
Field tests will be performed at the new development area in Kowloon – Kai Tak Development (KTD), which spans more than 320 hectares and includes the former Kai Tak airport site and adjoining district. HKDC operates its environmentally-friendly District Cooling System (DCS) to supply chilled water for air-conditioning to buildings within the district.
“During the field test, HKDC will operate a Nissan e-NV200 for use as an operations vehicle in KTD. HKDC will operate the vehicle in different road conditions, including both developed areas and construction sites. The vehicle will also be used at the Cruise Terminal as well as Hong Kong’s Children Hospital, and will support daily DCS operations.”
“Vehicle operation data will be recorded and stored in a data logger for further analysis and research at Nissan’s research facilities in Japan. After three months of field testing, the companies will evaluate the model’s potential for commercial use in Hong Kong.”
