Aspen Skiing Company took delivery today of four NEW BISON Tier 4 final, the cleanest engine technology in North America
PRINOTH was the first manufacturer in the world to offer snow groomers with engines that meet the “Stage IV/Tier 4 final” standard, the current benchmark for the cleanest exhaust emissions in mobile machinery. These models offer more engine power and higher torque while reducing exhaust emissions by up to 90 %. Groundbreaking technology and wide-ranging services help to ensure that PRINOTH snow groomers can be used sustainably in natural environments. With this strategy, which is part of the CLEAN MOTION concept, PRINOTH and the Aspen Skiing Company are making a key contribution to sustainable environmental protection.
90 % less nitrogen oxide and soot particles
The NEW BISON boasts state-of-the-art technology in terms of consumption and emissions. At 298 kW/406 hp, it is the most efficient and also most powerful model in its class, yet it also has the lowest emissions, generating 90 % less nitrogen oxide and soot particles. Thanks to its compact construction and easy maneuverability, the NEW BISON is perfect for slope grooming and terrain park tasks.
“It’s exciting for us to get to drive these new machines from PRINOTH,” said Travis Benson, Buttermilk Winter Trails Supervisor. “They dramatically reduce emissions without any reduction in power, maneuverability, vision and comfort that makes our jobs easier. They are aligned with our company’s views on the environment and sustainability and as a bonus they are much quieter than the rest of our fleet”.
“The NEW BISON offers more engine power and higher torque, while reducing exhaust emissions by more than 90%,” said PRINOTH North America’s Vice President of Sales, Jean-Claude Perreault. “It saves you time and money, along with having reduced emissions. The NEW BISON is leading the way with not only powerful performance and excellent environmental compatibility, but doing so in a very efficient manner.”
PRINOTH offers worldwide a complete fleet equipped with “Tier 4 final” systems and thus, sets a new standard for environmental compatibility and engine technology. The new generation of snow groomers combine outstanding performance and high-tech solutions with extremely low fuel consumption and optimal handling. The innovative engine technology has led to a huge reduction in emissions, while at the same time enabling higher engine output.
