BooBoo Plant Hire going green with solar lighting towers
Company expands rental portfolio with addition of 10 new ProLight units from Prolectric
HERTFORDSHIRE-based BooBoo Plant Hire have extended their equipment offering in the demolition and construction markets with the purchase of 10 new ProLight solar-powered tower lights.
The recent order from Prolectric means the company can now provide environmentally friendly, smart, clean and low-maintenance temporary lighting as an alternative to conventional diesel-powered lights for its demolition and construction plant hire customers.
The new ProLight unit meets the increased demand for bright, reliable lighting on urban infrastructure projects, demolition contracts and welfare compounds.
The solar lighting tower comprises a specially developed trailer-mounted unit with heavy-duty, deep-cycle batteries, an array of three or four high-powered solar panels, a 7.5m telescopic mast and four LED lights (maximum 40,000 lumens output).
The tower light is also said to provide substantial energy savings and, importantly, emits zero carbon emissions and no noise.
Taking delivery of the first three ProLight units at BooBoo’s headquarters in Kings Langley, director Terry Guilder said: ‘We have been thoroughly impressed with the ProLight fleet and eager to add the solar products to our plant hire portfolio.
‘We have seen an increased demand for solar-powered equipment from contractors needing to meet more stringent emissions regulations in London as well as in other major cities.
‘Not only is the ProLight an attractive option for the environment with no air pollution or carbon emissions, but we are also equally excited by the added-value and reliability it will offer to our customers.’
Among the key features of the solar-powered lighting tower is a digital remote control and monitoring function that allows on/off settings to be automatically adjusted.
Prolectric can also provide users with an easy calculator tool to help contractors to demonstrate ProLight’s carbon emissions and manpower cost savings when comparing against diesel alternatives.
