UK rental company CW Plant has placed an order for a fleet of Generac VB9 mobile lighting sets destined for its new Leeds depot.
The Leeds depot, which started trading in October 2015, is based in Armley, and is part of an investment by CW Plant in the North of England, with a Manchester depot set to open in February.
CW Plant said it chose to supply the Leeds depot with the Generac VB9 lighting system for a variety of reasons. The four metal halide lamp VB9 incorporates a 170-litre capacity fuel tank with a running time between refuelling of 340 hours, so that the operators could be spared from refuelling each light weekly, to just once a month.
CW Plant’s Graham Pollard said, “We already have a number of VB9 lighting sets in our fleet and we have found them to one of the most popular lighting products with our clients. Their versatility means they can be used for construction sites, highway projects and outside events, helping to ensure that our utilisation targets are maintained.
“In addition, the VB9’s sustainability credentials are always a key component when tendering for projects that need safe and economical lighting.”
The running time between refuelling leads to a reduction in carbon emissions of up to 72%, according to the company. Noise pollution will also be kept down to an absolute as the engine is fitted with a sound proof canopy.
