    100% Electric​

    Tenax International, a visionary company in the sustainable urban cleaning sector, which created its very first completely electric prototype of Electra 1.0 back in 2003, today can count on the trust of the most important Municipalities and service companies in the world, and can boast of the largest fleet of electric street sweepers and street washers in operation on the planet, managed through the most sophisticated geolocation and remote monitoring technologies, while guaranteeing truly unbeatable preventive and corrective maintenance and assistance services.

    All products in the Tenax range are 100% electric by design. This means that the technological decisions in terms of weights, dimensions, absorptions and layouts are made for a product that is only and exclusively intended to be electric. ​​

    For this very reason, and unlike an electrified product, they greatly surpass 10 hours of constant and continuous work, with a broad range of available batteries capable of perfectly adapting to any customer technical or financial requirements, as well as offering extraordinary benefits in terms of silence and pollutant emissions. All of this with no operational limits and with extraordinary savings in terms of operating costs and fuel consumption, allowing for a confirmed return on investment in no more than 3 years.

    Mission

    Pollution is becoming an increasingly more serious problem every day shared by the entire global population, with devastating effects on nature and grave consequences for our quality of life. This awareness is what has inspired the innovative spirit of Tenax International, tending toward the fundamental goal of conceptualizing, designing and manufacturing environmentally friendly technical solutions applied to 100% electric urban cleaning machines, to actively contribute to the creation of a more beautiful, cleaner and more sustainable world.

    “e” for Electric

    Pollution is a problem which becomes more serious by the day, with devastating effects on the natural world and serious consequences for our quality of life. This is what inspired the innovative spirit of Tenax International, focused on the fundamental goal of creating, designing and manufacturing environmentally sustainable technical solutions applied to 100% electric street cleaning machines.

    “e” for Environmentally Friendly

    Tenax International embodies the “e” philosophy in every aspect and phase of its activities. With 35 years of experience in the street sweeping sector, it is able to exploit the best technologies to offer its customers a complete range of effective, zero-impact solutions. Back in 2003 it pioneered the first completely electric street sweeper model in the world.

    “e” for Ethical

    To reduce its ecological footprint, Tenax International manufactures without polluting, thanks to its 50 Kw photovoltaic system and its strategic positioning within Motor Valley, the heart of the Italian automotive industry, enabling it to obtain the best components in the world right at its doorstep.

    “e” for Equitable

    All processes within Tenax International are optimized according to the principles of Lean manufacturing and perfected by continuous improvement according to Kaizen precepts to offer those who work for the company the best possible working experience with respect for the ISO 9001 and 14001 quality certifications. Even at the end of their life cycle, Tenax products reach top levels of eco-sustainability, as more than 90% of the components used are recyclable.

    “e” for Ecological

    The goal of Tenax is to make the world more sustainable and livable for ourselves as well as for future generations. This is why, compared to a traditional endothermic street sweeper, capable of emitting more than 37,000 kg of CO2 every year, Tenax’s zero-impact technology completely eliminates pollutant emissions and drastically reduces them during the production process as well.

    100% Electric Reliability

    The electric technology we have developed and that we continue to refine each and every day has reached shocking performance and reliability levels, which have convinced us to invest even more in new product development, especially to improve the quality of life of the cities where we live, boosting our customers’ efficiency and contributing in our own small way to creating a more beautiful, cleaner and more sustainable world for our future and, we hope, that of our children.
