Solar Welfarevan

The  Solar Welfarevan has been produced especially for Nixon Hire and was exclusively unveiled at a World Environment Day event hosted by Skanska Balfour Beatty JV for Thames Water.

Michael Robbins, UK Divisional Manager (Renewables) at Nixon Hire commented, "The Solar Welfarevan is the latest Nixon Hire product to receive its renewable energy credentials. With such a large fleet of vans, it made sense for us to investigate how solar power could reduce emission output and increase the efficiency of the vehicles performance. I'd like to thank Skanska Balfour Beatty JV for Thames Water for kindly inviting us to their event to share information about the renewable products we offer now and what is coming in the future."
