BAM Nuttall, the UK based supplier of civil engineering services, has opted to purchase twenty X-ECO lighting towers from the Cambridgeshire supplier, Trime (UK) Limited.
In order to validate the sustainable features that the Trime X-ECO highlights and with sustainability at the heart of their operations, the company evaluated a demonstration unit during a series of extensive field trials over a six week period.
Following the conclusion of this trial period, BAM Nuttall’s plant manager, Andy Haythorne said, “We were extremely impressed with the ease of operation of the X-ECO, Trime have succeeded in combining an evident reliable and robust machine with sustainable features and fuel saving capabilities.”
“This is our first venture into LED lighting for our sites and we needed a set that helps to maintain our strong commitment to becoming a more sustainable and responsible business, in keeping with our Beyond Zero programme,” added Andy.
With storage and delivery facilities at capacity during peak operations, the compact size and relatively low weight of the X-ECO will bring immediate benefits to BAM Nuttall logistics operations. Up to thirteen X-ECO sets can be loaded on one single truck which, potentially, means an increase in their transport vehicle fleet utilisation
Trime engineers have calculated that the X-ECO uses approximately £336.00 less in fuel each month when compared to many lighting sets currently available. These savings equate to a reduction in C02 output by around 888kg per month.
The Trime manufacturing plant is based in Cassinetta di Lugagnano, near Milan and Trime UK Limited is headquartered in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
In 2016, BAM Group UK (legal entity comprising of BAM Nuttall and BAM Construct UK) were awarded the CEMARS gold standard for achieving significant carbon savings year-on-year over a six-year period by following a systematic carbon reduction programme that have resulted in a reduction in emissions of 17.72% when compared with baseline data. CEMARS is the Carbon Emissions Measurement and Reduction Scheme and refers to ISO14064-1:2006. This achievement has been accomplished by the implementation of several energy saving initiatives across both organisations.
The sourcing of more efficient plant and equipment is also a key part of the BAM Sustainability Strategy as we work towards challenging 2020 targets for carbon reduction.
