10 Dec Double Green Apple celebrations!
We are celebrating a spectacular double win at this year’s Green Apple Awards.
Our EcoSmart ZERO emission welfare unit scooped gold and the Solar Pod was presented with the silver award.
Sales director, Lisa Gillett, accompanied by Factory Manager Jonathan Denny were invited to a lavish award ceremony at the Palace of Westminster where they collected the awards.
The EcoSmart ZERO provides all the mandatory welfare facilities and is powered by a combination of a hydrogen gas powered fuel cell and an advanced solar power system. This means the unit operates almost totally silent and emits only pure water vapour. The power to run the heating, sockets, kettle and microwave comes instantly from a battery bank. The batteries are constantly fed by the built-in hydrogen fuel cell and solar panels.
The Solar Pod (Patent Pending) was designed and developed in conjunction with a top UK equipment rental firm, Nixon Hire. The Solar Pod delivers up to 30kVA of power by combining solar PV with a back-up generator. The Solar Pod significantly reduces fuel bills by harvesting the suns energy to provide free power to site with the security of a back-up generator.
Commenting on these latest achievements, Lisa said, “Both the Solar Pod and the EcoSmart ZERO have been extremely popular on sites throughout the country. To have their sustainable qualities recognised by the Green Organisation is indeed an honour and a testament to all the hard work that our design teams put into developing environmentally sensitive equipment.”
