In the case of the electric transporters of Swiss Post, there were already various fire incidents. Around a year ago, authorities ordered a recall of the vehicles. But there was an incident again. Two electricity with loading burned out.

In a depot in Staufen (Baden-Wurttemberg) in the district of Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald on 22. June two electric vehicles including loading. There were no injuries. The cause of the fire has not yet been resolved, but so far there is no evidence of arson. The police assume a technical defect. "The postal vehicle of the post was previously hung on a charging station. A resident stated strong smoke under the vehicle and immediately warned the posters of the post office. Another postal vehicle could just be driven from the danger area by an employee before the battery of the smoking vehicle exploded and the entire vehicle caught fire. Another electric vehicle, which was connected to the same charging station, also caught fire", reports the Freiburg police headquarters in a press release.

Transporters must be dipped in water containers

As usual for electric car and battery lords, the fire brigade had to take special measures to extinguish the fire and prevent the batteries from being newly inflammation. "After the first extinguishing, both burned -out vehicles were loaded with a crane into a container of the fire brigade specially present for this purpose, which was then fully flooded with water. In this state, the vehicles must also linger the next time in order to avoid re -inflammation of the battery cells. The more damaged vehicle was also brought from the site due to the risk of self -inflammation", So the police.

Brand series continues

Deutsche Post DHL spokesman Alexander Edenhofer said on request from Site: "At the moment we only know that a vehicle has ignited and another due to its proximity. However, we will immediately get to the bottom of the cause of the fire with external experts." The post has 15.000 "Street scooter"Vehicles the largest German e-car fleet. The number of known brand incidents with the e-transporters increases to six. 10 vehicles were destroyed in total, with four of them being victims of arsonation, according to the post office. On the rest, you start from technical defects. Apparently there are several weak points on the e -transporter – both for the battery itself and the charger. The Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) ordered a call back for StreetScooter models from the construction years 2014 to 2019 in July 2020. At the request of site, the post office did not want to report whether the van now burned in Baden-Wurttemberg was already in the workshop. An inquiry to the KBA was also not answered. The KBA is responsible for monitoring callbacks.

"Depot fires are a dreaded scenario"

In the past few weeks, two serious fires of bus depots in Dusseldorf and Hanover have made headlines in which electrically operated vehicles were also affected and which caused considerable effort due to the complicated extinguishing work on battery fires. It is still unclear whether the causes of fire in the incidents were also the causes of fire. Fire protection expert Niki Traxel, a specialist in dealing with burning lithium-ion batteries, said to Site: “Depot fires are always a dreaded scenario because vehicles are close together and the fire can quickly spread from one vehicle to the other. As a safety measure, a distance between the vehicles is important during charging-because during the loading process, the risk of a brand is greatest."

Electrification is a big topic in the booming package industry, which reports a delivery maximum after the next because of the online trade. In order to defuse criticism of a higher volume of traffic and the associated air pollution, the parcel service providers invest in emission -free or low -emission logistics.

  1. These new ones "Post-BEV-Vehikel-fires"…
    Should also the forum known, "Most blindly fanatic BEV bonfectral" gradually the … (supposed) "Pro BEV arguments" go out. What justification is there on this "unalterable way" To endanger people, the environment and material goods without reason ?? Hard to imagine when this "Post-Bev car" When delivering in an underground car park "would have gone up". The fire brigade would hardly be with the LOschcontainers until "arrived on site". For me it is only "a question of time", Until the first in such a BEV fire "seriously injured" or even "Kill" will give. Usually these belong "Schrott-Bev-Karren" as "hazardous waste" immediately closed and disposed of. The post office must continue to operate this "Pure irresponsibility"!!

  2. But the e-lobby claims that they can do it
    do not burn. Now it says that the battery would even have exploded. Perhaps hydrogen has formed during the first water contact? Fortunately, no people have been injured. Now it is important to capture the environmental damage. It is a lot of contaminated extinguishing water in the ground. I wouldn’t be surprised if the e-lobby claims that that would even be healthy …. No, it’s really highly toxic. Just like the gases created during combustion. Oh and the CO2 balance …. is set to 0, by decision, not because it is real. How does that go here? Have already burned down. A modern diesel cannot even emit so much CO2 over 1mio km. Well and the fine dust etc. This misfortune also swallows the e-echo chamber. Their ideology increases more and more in flames.
