Speedy helps customers go green with £5 million investment

SPEEDY has announced a £5 million investment in new generators, biofuels and mobile fuel stations to help customers reduce on-site carbon emissions.

The tool and plant hire specialist has added over 200 new generators to its portfolio, ranging from 20kva up to 500kva to create a 2,500-strong fleet which is compatible with hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) fuel.

Speedy said that customers who choose to operate their equipment with HVO fuel have the opportunity to reduce emissions by up to 90% compared to using diesel.

The business has also invested in 150 fuel pods, which customers can use as temporary fuel stations on-site. The fPod can hold 5,300L to 17,880L, depending on the model, and is designed to support customers in cutting fuel deliveries and reducing the risk of spills. It uses an intelligent monitoring system that notifies the user and Speedy when refilling is required.

Speedy has also invested in additional cabling and ancillary products, including a new e distribution board that has been co-designed by Speedy and the manufacturer.
