The VB-9 (pictured) is powered by a 3KvA generator, which is claimed to use 72% less fuel to operate than an equivalent unit and emits less carbon dioxide, achieving a rating of Euro-3.
Speedy has also invested £2m in stock of Towerlight’s VT-1 Eco towers. According to Speedy, tests have shown that 12 VT-1 Ecos can create operator time, fuel and carbon savings worth more than £4,300 a month on an average site. The VT-1 is already widely used across the construction, civil engineering and events industries and was used at this year's Glastonbury Festival.
Speedy supply chain director Andy Connor said: "Reducing carbon emissions and saving energy costs go hand-in-hand, so products like the VB-9 and VT-1 Eco are invaluable tools in our customers' armouries. Speedy's long term strategy is to continue investing and being first to market with products like these. By delivering innovative and sustainable solutions which help solve the everyday challenges faced by our customer base, we're helping them to make a significant contribution towards lowering carbon emissions.”
