The safe and thorough cleaning of plant and equipment for construction, agricultural and similar equipment is pre-requisite operation. The environmentally safe containment and removal of mud, soil and similar contaminates can become a problem, particularly for those firms that do not have access to an outside yard.
In the past, the expenditure involved to install a permanent tank, which invariably involves ground excavation, made this exercise cost prohibitive. However, the tax allowable, Government backed, water efficient enhanced capital allowances (ECA) scheme, has meant that firms can now set up a Trime X-Splash wash bay and place the investment against their annual corporation tax bill.
The Trime X-Splash wash bay is listed on the Water Technology List (WTL) which promotes products that encourage sustainable water use and rewards businesses for investing in them through the ECA scheme. The ECA allows a business to offset the cost of purchasing eligible plant and machinery against its taxable profits. The Trime X-Splash (models X1 and X2) were approved and added to the WTL in November 2017. They are the only wash bays of this type that are listed and now that access is closed to new entrants, this means that the X-Splash is the single system that is eligible under this scheme.
Paul Hay, managing director of Trime UK said, “If a company invests and installs one of our X-Splash wash bays they can claim for the full expenditure against their tax bill. Several of our clients have already successfully completed their applications and we are always on hand to help with the procedure if necessary.”
The Trime X-Splash wash bay is an ecological, flexible cleaning system for most types of plant and machinery. It prevents soil pollution and contamination of drains, from oil, grease, and similar chemical contaminants. The X-Splash has four factors that distinguishes it from other washing systems;
1. A recycling process so that the water is contained and reused:
2. A filtering system that ensures no contaminates are discharged accidently:
3. Overall water usage reduction:
4. A fully portable/relocatable set-up.
Trime UK offer a complete delivery, installation and training programme for all purchasers of the X-Splash system. They have recently produced a comprehensive training video, which details all the features and benefits of the X-Splash.
The environmental qualities of their X-Splash Wash Bay have been formally recognised by the internationally respected campaigners, The Green Organisation.
