TRACK YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT - TELEMATICS

We want to help you understand and manage your environmental impact.

Over 12,000 items of our plant, power generation and powered access equipment fleet are now fitted with Track Unit, Deep Sea, JCB Livelink and Enigma telematics systems.

This gives you a telematics dashboard so you can keep track of fuel usage and Co2 emissions, by location and by each individual asset. It also shows utilisation patterns which helps you to take better operational and cost saving decisions on site, for example, identifying times when engines are left idling, and burning fuel for no reason.

Our telematics system will soon cover even more of our large rental equipment fleet. We will bring you new and improved consolidated dashboards that can be reviewed by site, by individual account or by your parent account. Keep in touch with us to find out more!

ENVIRONMENTAL TRAKWAY SOLUTIONS

Traditionally site compounds and roads were built using truck-loads of tarmac and aggregate, changing natural environments forever, creating dust and sediment run-off into local water tables.

Trakway is a more modern, environmentally sustainable solution. Needing far less transport, it can be easily re-used on the next job, rather than being ripped up and sent to landfill.

Available in aluminium, plastic and timber, trakway provides a great environmental alternative, allowing sites to return to their natural state once de-rig has taken place. Perfect for sites of special scientific interest (SSSI).

HYBRID POWER GENERATORS

Our hybrid power generator fleet can help you improve efficiencies, save money and provide silent night-time running. Working with a traditional generator, the hybrid unit automatically detects when the load is low and turns off the diesel generator, seamlessly transferring a load to its internal stored energy source.

SOLAR PODS

Solar pods significantly reduce your fuel bills by harvesting the sun’s energy to provide free power with the backup of a generator.

Solar photovoltaic panels are combined with battery storage, a back-up generator and fuel tank in a safe and secure unit. Each pod can power up to five cabins with power and water.

The solar element either powers sites directly, or helps charge the battery. Depending on load demand, power is provided by solar energy, the battery, generator or a combination.

JCB 1.5T ELECTRIC EXCAVATOR

The JCB electric excavator has exactly the same structure, canopy, dig end, hydraulics and controls as the diesel model and performs in exactly the same way. The only difference is that it is battery powered, producing zero CO2 emissions, needing zero fuel and creating zero noise.

WACKER NEUSON ELECTRIC DUMPER

This emission-free dumper is the ideal choice for material handling support, especially in built up areas where exhaust or noise emissions can be an issue. Four-wheel drive and articulated joints mean it is very stable for work on uneven or steep terrain.

JLG ELECTRIC ARTICULATING BOOM LIFT

The JLG electric boom lift is far more economical than a standard model, using an electric motor and battery technology for zero emissions and no noise.

The boom lift is also incredibly versatile with two independent AC drive motors and a standard oscillating axle delivering the best possible grip and stability.

ECO WASH-DOWN UNIT

Our eco wash-down units provide a robust process to remove site dirt and contamination from your equipment without any discharge pollution.

Remove suspended solids from your trakway and equipment. We use these units at our own depots to separate contaminants by using an environmentally friendly flocculent. This provides compression to the surface of electrically charged particles, clumping them together, so that they become heavier and sink to the bottom of the separation tank. Through a series of weir and filtration systems and adjustment to pH imbalances, the result is re-usable clean water! In laboratory tests, where 'poor' is rated one and normal tap water rates as five, our site waste water scores 4.5.

Once the water has been either recycled or safely dealt with, the settled solids can be removed and dried, ready for recycling into usable top soil, sand and aggregates.

ACOUSTIC BARRIERS

Noise pollution is best kept to a minimum. Minimise noise from your site and help maintain the best possible relationships with local residents.

Our acoustic barriers are excellent for general noise control with a BS EN rating of 28.2dB. Designed to fit a 3.5m temporary fence panel, the patented velcro side connectors create seamless noise protection. The eyelets mean the barriers can be easily suspended from site fencing, scaffolding and hoardings.

This product is easily folded for transport and storage and can be branded with a message of your choice.
