Plant Innovation and the Most Sustainable Solutions to Plant Fleet

Sustainable Solutions to Plant Fleet

Climate change has a visible impact; rainfall patterns have altered, sea levels are ascending, and the world is warming. It’s clear that unless we radically decrease our direct contribution to climate change and play our part in confining global warming, we will all experience dramatic changes in our lives.

Over the past few years, we have been working on carbon-saving initiatives to ensure we continue to modernise our plant fleet, take advantage of advancing hybrid technologies and explore alternative technologies as they develop. Through thorough market assessment, we are adding only the best in the market kit to maximise our and our customer’s CO2 carbon savings.

We aim to reduce our plant’s carbon footprint, initially with ultra-low emissions excavators and more recently with hybrid machines, such as the hybrid Kobelco 210 Hybrid Excavators.

Hydrogen Powertrains

Due to the demand for our high-power heavy plant equipment, a complete electric solution isn’t practical. The excessive weight and cost of the battery, along with the long charging times and the need to have charging facilities in the remotest of infrastructure locations, just isn’t achievable right now.

Hydrogen motors use similar technology to existing propulsion systems. As a result, they are robust, cost-effective and can be integrated into all forms of heavy plant by simply replacing the existing diesel engine with hydrogen powertrains.

We are currently exploring this solution and the benefits of incorporating Hydrogen Powertrains into our fleet.  

Electric Vehicles

Running electric vehicles on-site can be highly challenging, especially as getting a site connected to the grid can take a while. To make this work, construction teams need to make early grid connections. This will be something to watch in the future as the construction sector ramp up CO2 initiatives in an aim to be carbon neutral by 2050.

Carbon Offsetting

As well as introducing initiatives to reduce our hire plant fleets carbon footprint, for every tonne of carbon from our own operations that we emit and that we cannot avoid, we are looking to invest in a project within the UK or overseas that is reducing carbon emissions by the same amount. With this in place, we can say that we are a carbon-neutral business.
