Takeuchi joins the CESAR ECV green revolution
By Louise Carney16 February 2022
From February 2022, Takeuchi Mfg UK will include the enhanced CESAR ECV (Emission Compliance Verification) system as standard across the full Takeuchi line up.
The ECV system uses tamper-evident colour-coded labels with a unique alpha/numeric code, which is also linked securely to a machine’s unique CESAR identity and ensures complete integrity of the system.
Since 2008 Takeuchi UK has fitted the CESAR scheme to their full line up of machinery and, following the recent achievement of Stage V compliance on all its models up to 15 tonnes, Takeuchi will now include the CESAR ECV bolt-on product as standard, providing accurate emissions information to their customers.
Hitoshi Arai, Managing Director at Takeuchi UK, said, “As a leading supplier in the construction equipment sector, we are constantly looking at environmental impacts of our machines.
“Takeuchi has been Stage V ready since 2020 across the entire range and the new CESAR ECV system confirms this. For our customers, this will be essential on-site to manage large scale projects and multiple contractors ensuring plant on site is as ‘clean’ as is possible”.
Following the significant success of the CESAR security scheme, the CEA recognised an opportunity to add emissions verification to the existing scheme.
With the help of Datatag, CESAR ECV (Emission Compliance Verification) was developed to create an easy and reliable way to confirm the emissions category of construction equipment.
Suneeta Johal, Chief Executive Officer at the Construction Equipment Association, said, “Since the launch of the CESAR ECV system in 2019 the scheme has seen significant growth across the industry and this has been strengthened further with the introduction of CESAR ECV.
“It is great to have Takeuchi Mfg UK on board with the scheme and making emissions easier to understand across the construction industry.”
