Published: 15-Sep-2010

Tennant Co., which makes street sweepers and other industrial cleaning equipment, said Tuesday it will provide a zero-emissions street sweeper to the city of Cologne.

Terms of the deal weren't announced. The deal was announced at an industry conference in Munich.

The Green Machines 500ze runs on lithium-ion batteries for a full shift of work. It is nearly silent and therefore suited to night and early-morning cleaning, Tennant said. Tennant is based in Minneapolis.
