CW Plant invests Trime solar and battery-powered lighting sets

Charles Wilson Engineers (CW Plant) are continuing to expand their hire fleet of Trime lighting towers with a further investment of one hundred X-ECO, X-ECO SOLAR HYBRID and X-ECO LITHIUM lighting towers.

CW Plant’s site lighting fleet is now entirely made up of Trime lighting towers, totalling 650 sets and distributed throughout their nationwide network of 29 depots.

Graham Pollard, CW Plant Director, said, “We have taken the decision to continue to invest in the Trime X-ECO LED engine-powered lighting towers, however, this new investment also includes solar-powered X-ECO SOLAR HYBRID and battery-powered X-ECO LITHIUM lighting sets. We have noted a trend in the construction and event markets to move towards more sustainable machinery, hence this purchase. The Trime sets incorporate the most modern technology, and their environmental and fuel-saving attributes make the Trime units a very attractive proposition for our clients.”

“I believe we buy the best quality and most reliable light available”, added Graham.

Trime’s X-SOLAR HYBRID is low-emission, and for a large part of its operation, a noise-free lighting tower. The unit features four 60-watt energy-saving LED lamps fitted to a fully galvanised 8.5-metre mast. The X-SOLAR HYBRID delivers a light coverage of 2000 square metres, and will provide excellent illumination 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Trime’s X-ECO LITHIUM is powered by advanced lithium battery technology that can be fully recharged in less than three hours. This means that in a ten-hour cycle, for 80% of the operation, the X- ECO HYBRID LITHIUM is powered exclusively by its batteries, and therefore emits zero noise and zero carbon emissions. Illumination is via six energy-saving, long-lasting LED lamps, which deliver an illuminated area of over 3000 square metres
