The Solar Welfarevan from Nixon Hire!5 June 2019
Today is World Environment Day and in its honour, Nixon Hire are delighted to announce the latest in its solar product fleet....THE SOLAR WELFARE VAN!!
The Solar Welfarevan has been produced in conjunction with Ryder and will be exclusively unveiled today 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 Welfare Van 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. The Solar Welfarevan is currently on trial sites and we anticipate it will be readily available for hire in the next 6 weeks. I'd like to thank Ryder for their support in the product of this product and also to 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. We are also supporting two other Environmental days’ this week , which really shows the momentum that we are gathering!"
Michael Robbins continued ”This is an exciting time to be part of the renewables movement in the construction sector and I'm delighted that Nixon Hire are leading the way with our product innovations and commitment to making a positive environmental change. The Nixon Hire Solar Pod (which was launched last year) is now being specified by our customers for site set ups, it’s a staple product. We consider this a huge achievement and hope that our forthcoming solar products are equally well received."
So, how can solar panels assist the performance of a Nixon Hire Welfarevan?
The key benefits of the Solar Welfarevan are:
- Less CO2 Emissions
- Less oil use
- Less engine wear (higher predicted residual value)
- Longer battery / engine life
- Less charging of battery when idling
- More Silent run time
