We win a Green Apple Award for our X-Solar Hybrid lighting tower

Green Apple logoFollowing on from our 2018 award for the water saving X-Splash wash bay system, we have now had the sustainable qualities of our X-Solar lighting tower formally recognised by the international, independent, non-political, environment group - The Green Organisation.

We have been invited to a glittering presentation ceremony, hosted at the Houses of Parliament on 23rd November, where they will receive their award.

The Trime X-Solar Hybrid is a LED lighting tower that is powered by a combination of solar energy, battery power, backed-up by an engine driven battery charging system to ensure continual illumination.

The set features 4 no. 100watt LED lamps that deliver a light coverage of 2400 square metres, combined with up to 3000 hours of uninterrupted running without refuelling. For 95% of its operation the X-Solar Hybrid emits zero noise along with 97% zero emissions.

xsolarOur engineers have calculated that the X-Solar Hybrid will bring significant cost savings and environmental gains when compared to a standard lighting tower. As this lighting set only uses £5.00 worth of fuel per month, an operator’s diesel costs could diminish by a staggering £457.00 per month.

Commenting on this award, Paul Hay said, “We are delighted to receive this accolade. Environmental issues concerning the use of fossil fuels on sites are a major subject, so we have been focussing our product development to promote the use of renewables. To have the X-Solar Hybrid officially acknowledged as a sustainable product is extremely satisfying.”
