Trime UK X-Solar Hybrid lighting tower wins Green Apple Award

Following on from their 2018 award for the water-saving  X-Splash wash bay system, Trime UK, the leading supplier of environmentally centred lighting towers have now had the sustainable qualities of their X-Solar lighting tower formally recognised by the international, independent, non-political, environment group – The Green Organisation.

Senior representatives from the Cambridgeshire based company 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.

Trime engineers have calculated that the X-Solar Hybrid will bring significant cost savings and environmental gains when compared to a standard lighting tower.  As the Trime 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, Trime UK Managing Director, 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.”

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries. The Green Organisation is dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.

The Green Organisation and The Green Apple Awards have become well established as one of the most popular environmental campaigns in the world.

Trime UK Limited is an environmentally conscious company that supplies many of the leading UK and Ireland rental firms with eco-sensitive LED site lighting equipment. The Trime Group, based near Milan, Italy is regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of powered LED lighting sets to the worldwide construction rental markets.
