With an increasing propensity to work outside of daylight hours, safe, bright and sustainable site lighting is an important component on construction sites, highway and rail projects. In addition, outside events need good lighting for their entrances and car parks. In response to this expanding market, North East based, plant and tool hire specialists, Hubbway Hire have invested in forty Trime X-ECO LED lighting sets.

Hubbway Hire’s Managing Director, Nick Hubbway, explained, “We noted an increase in requests for lighting towers that used LED lamps. Our clients were aware of the energy saving properties of these particular lamps and the subsequent fuel saving benefits for themselves.”

“We decided to research the market for lighting towers that used LED lamps which drew us towards the Trime X-ECO LED unit. It was apparent from the first demonstration of the X-ECO LED that this product was extremely well-made and had all the features we needed built-in as standard. Hence our order for an initial forty sets,” added Nick.

The X-ECO LED was first introduced into the UK market in 2016 and it is now becoming increasingly a favourite lighting set with many leading rental firms and their clients. Hire firms appreciate the X-ECO’s robust build and their customers value its fuel-conservation qualities. The wider environment is served by the X-Eco’s low noise and reduced carbon emissions. Safety is heightened by the X-ECO AMOSS safety system, which automatically lowers the mast if the lighting set is moved whilst the mast is still erected. 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.
