In large vans like the one seen here, mobile workshop conversions often include systems for working autonomously away from base, especially compressors and generators for powering tools and equipment. The photos on this page illustrate an Iveco Daily L3 H2 with a racking system designed for a company that specialises in the transport, storage and disposal of waste. The firm needed a van for maintaining and repairing its fleet of pump trucks.

Since this van is going to be used to service septic tank pump trucks, one of the key requirements was to line the interior with easy-to-clean, damp-proof and spill-resistant materials.
The Daily is therefore fitted with a two-layer floor liner
made from aluminium tread plate and birch plywood, and full-height wall and door lining panels
in painted steel. The bulkhead is protected by marble-look plywood liners. All Syncro liners are cut to size and pre-drilled at the Syncro System factory in northern Italy and can be installed in very little time by Syncro’s specialist dealers.
With so much room available in the cargo compartment, it was decided to divide this racking system into two functional areas: storage on the left and workshop on the right.
On the left
of the van we have:
a floor-level compartment with a lift-and-rotate door
a leak-proof stainless-steel tray for carrying jerry cans or drums of oil, fuel or detergent, designed to prevent drips and spillages from spreading over the floor and making it dirty and slippery
two metal drawers and four case trays
a number of shelves, including two with adapters for holding removable plastic containers
an Ultra locker with lock and key, for holding clean clothes, shoes and other personal effects
a full-length top tray and, at the bulkhead, a floor-level compartment with an inverter and all the electrical connections needed to make the van fully autonomous
While the racking on the left of the van is configured to hold all the spares and tools needed, that on the right
is designed as a workplace for servicing and repairing parts. It consists of:
a large work bench with marble-look plywood top supported by a set of metal drawers with internal dividers for keeping tools tidy
a vice on a fold-away bench; easy to open and use, this takes up very little room when stowed away and forms an additional work surface when extended out of the van
a small column of shelves and tilting transparent containers for rapid access to small parts and fasteners
two floor-level compartments with lift-and-rotate doors for storing other materials
Servicing vehicles is a job that inevitably involves power tools. Thanks to a powerful compressor-generator combo
connected to an inverter, this Daily is fully autonomous and does not need a connection to a mains supply. The van has all the equipment required to distribute electrical energy and compressed air, including cable and hose reels at the rear of the left side racking.
This Daily is also equipped with the following accessories:
a paper roll holder for wiping hands and tools clean
a first aid case
LED lights for illuminating the interior of the van and the work bench
an LED light bar on the roof for illuminating the area around the van
two rotating yellow beacons at the back of the roof for warning other vehicles of the van’s presence on a site or at a roadside
a cargo retaining system comprising a set of milled rails fixed to the racking, floor and roof for holding vertical and horizontal cargo bars. Cargo bars can be used to form separate compartments inside the van and are extremely useful for securing bulky and fragile objects. Cargo bars can be positioned anywhere along the rails, wherever they prove most useful.
