Trime Scores a Green Apple Hat Trick


Trime, one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of sustainable site lighting towers and water-saving equipment wash bays celebrates neither one nor two but three accolades bestowed upon them by the Green Organisation.

In November, representatives of Trime were invited to a formal ceremony held at the historic Houses of Parliament to accept their trophies.

The first award was a Green World Ambassador Award conferred for their ground breaking X-SOLAR HYBRID lighting tower. The judges recognised Trime’s use of new energy-saving and carbon-reducing systems that are incorporated into their X-SOLAR HYBRID lighting tower. The Trime X- SOLAR HYBRID is a LED lighting tower that is powered by a combination of solar energy, and battery power, backed up by a fuel-efficient engine-driven battery charging system to ensure continual illumination.

This was swiftly followed by a Green World Award SILVER for Trime’s energy-saving X-ECO Lithium Hybrid site lighting towers in the Energy Management category.


Finally, the judges handed Trime a Green Apple Environment Award BRONZE honour once more for their X-ECO HYBRID LITHIUM low-emission tower light, this time in the Fuel Efficiency class. The Trime X-ECO HYBRID LITHIUMis a LED lighting tower that is powered by a combination of a lithium battery and a small fuel-efficient HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) compatible engine. X-ECO HYBRID LITHIUMcan be fully recharged in less than two hours. This means that for 80% of the operation, the X- ECO HYBRID LITHIUM is powered exclusively by its batteries and therefore emits zero noise and zero carbon emissions.

The International Green Apple Environment Awards were established in 1994 and have become one of the world’s most prestigious recognition campaigns. THE GREEN WORLD AWARDS recognise and reward the endeavours of Commerce, Industry, Governments, Ministries, Departments, Agencies, Authorities, and Individuals who have a beneficial impact on the environment. Every carbon footprint caused by winners and their guests is offset by the planting of trees in cooperation with Green Earth Appeal and the United Nations.

Trime has over 50 years of experience in the manufacture, development, and marketing of environmentally sustainable lighting sets for the rail, off-shore, event, construction, and rental markets. The company also has a range of dust suppression units and advanced wash bays. Trime equipment is distributed worldwide. Trime UK is headquartered in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire; their manufacturing facilities are based near Milan, Italy.
