ARVILL Ltd, the Airdrie-based plant and tool hire firm, has ordered an initial six X-ECO LED lighting towers manufactured by the leading supplier of engine and hybrid powered LED site lighting, Trime UK.
The order was finalised between Arthur Shevill, Arvill’s managing director and Trime UK’s sales manager, Andrew Owen at the Executive Hire Show Roadshow held in Glasgow.
This is the first order from Arvill Ltd for the X-ECO LED sets.
Commenting on this order, Arthur said: “We were impressed with robust design of X-ECO LED and Andrew put up a strong case for its comparatively low whole life costs. Also, Trime having an experienced repair and maintenance support service based locally, helped to push us in the direction of the Trime sets.
“We are looking forward to integrating them into our hire fleet ready for when the clocks turn back and demand for site lighting increases.”
The X-ECO LED has a number of environmental qualities and safety aspects. The set is fitted with the AMOSS safety system, which automatically lowers the mast if the lighting set is moved whilst the mast is still erected. The complete unit features an external emergency stop button, a fully bunded fuel tank, four height adjustable stabilisers and site levels for guidance during deployment. The energy saving LED lamps will work for up to 50,000 hours without replacement.
