Sunbelt UK places €13.5m lighting tower order

23 November 2020

Sunbelt Rentals in the UK has placed a £12 million (€13.5 million) order with Trime UK for more than 1,000 mobile ighting towers, comprising Trime’s X-Eco LED, X-Hybrid, X-Solar Hybrid and X-Solar towers.

Sunbelt Rentals and Trime UK has been trialling the towers with two major construction organisations for several months. Trime said that sustainability was at the core of the trials and it was ”pleased to receive positive feedback in relation to reduced fuel consumption and low carbon emissions, without compromising lighting levels.”

The X-Eco LED is a diesel powered unit and the X-Hybrid uses a battery/engine system. The X-Solar Hybrid is a combination of solar and engine power that runs for a claimed 3,000 hours before refuelling and the X-Solar sets are diesel and noise free. Each tower has a 9 m vertical mast and LED lamps.

Ray Caulfield, CEO of Trime Group, said; “Our mission is to design and build quality, low and emission free, lighting sets for the worldwide rental markets.

”To have our lighting towers endorsed by Sunbelt Rentals and their clients is a true endorsement of our products.”

Trime UK is headquartered in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, UK, and its manufacturing plant is based near Milan, Italy. Its lighting towers are used in sectors including construction, events and rail.
