Business takes major step forward in aim to decarbonize essential plant and equipment
AS part of their net-zero carbon commitment, FM Conway have installed a new, fully electric, zero-emission Sennebogen 865E material handler at their wharf on the river Thames at Erith.
Last year, the busy wharf took delivery of more than 330,000 tonnes of aggregate, so finding a carbon-friendly way to operate this service has been a priority for the business.
Investing in the new material handler will help reduce the emissions produced by essential plant and comes as part of FM Conway’s drive to become net zero by 2045.
The electric machine will save over 142 tonnes of CO2e emissions per year, as well as being more efficient, easier to operate, and much quieter than its predecessor.
FM Conway’s sustainability director, Matt Tallon said: ‘Seaborne delivery is the most carbon-efficient method of obtaining aggregate supplies, and further improving these savings through the introduction of our electric crane demonstrates how serious we are about our commitment to net zero. We are always looking at new innovations to make our operations greener.’
