Scottish hirer gears up for winter with new lighting

3 Nov 16 Scottish plant hirer Jarvie Plant Group has invested in new tower light technology to serve construction and outdoor events businesses.

The firm has purchased 40 new VB-9 Eco Towers and five VT-Hybrid units. 

According to Jarvie, the VB-9, with 400w halide lamps and telescopic hydraulic mast, saves up to four times on fuel costs versus standard lights, with 340 hours running time on its long run tank. 

The VT-Hybrid has four 150w LED floodlights and its rechargeable battery allows the light to run for up to 700 hours between refuels. 

“We are currently involved in some major infrastructure projects across Scotland including the M8 upgrade, where our tower lights are on hire to the various contractors working on site,” said business development director, David Jarvie. 

“It’s the time of year when attention focuses on how companies can maintain productivity and safety on site; often in remote locations. Our tower lights will be used during the winter months on various civils projects across Scotland, with over 80 sets of VB-9 Eco Towers on hire to contractors."
