Offering products that are not only practical and functional, but that do their bit towards reducing carbon emissions is a priority these days. There are now clear targets set by governments aimed at minimising and eventually eradicating the emission of greenhouse gases. Innovations have been seen in just about every industry utilising renewable energy, low carbon products and recycling. Priorities include not only protecting the environment but eliminating waste and saving money.
The plant hire sector is no exception and we at Rhinos watch keenly as technical advances in plant machinery emerge. This includes energy efficient engines, alternative materials and the introduction of electric vehicles.
Our Mobile Welfare Cabins are a great example of how technology is changing things for the better. Quite apart from their role in promoting wellbeing among construction site workers and staff, they demonstrate highly functional, advanced features. We chose Boss welfare cabins for our hire fleet, as we are committed to only adding the highest quality products. Family owned manufacturers Boss, describe themselves as a ‘hungry, close knit team’ who always ‘go the extra mile’. We would definitely agree with this, as do our customers, once they have hired one of these groundhog welfare units.
All Boss welfare cabin generators are HVO [Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil] biofuel ready, which is good news for the environment. HVO is a renewable plant based source of clean energy. Using this form of fuel, means that CO2 and other harmful emissions are reduced by up to 90%. The Redbox and Infinity generators used in our welfare units can be run on HVO biofuel. This product is accepted as one of the greenest and purest fuels in the world.
Before this innovative fuel was introduced, the product of choice was diesel or regular biodiesel, HVO as an alternative is a sustainable fuel which conforms to EN 15940/ASTM D975. Being plant based, the fuel is exceptionally eco-friendly, and does not deplete fossil fuel reserves. It is produced from vegetable matter that can be regrown again and again without issue. A big advantage of these welfare cabin generators, is that should you have difficulty accessing HVO biofuel, traditional diesel can be used.
Benefits of this biodegradable and non-toxic fuel include:
Boss mobile welfare cabins have a ‘game-changing’ electrical system, which is the most fuel efficient in the industry. The ‘Eco-Ultimate’ uses clever technology ensuring that no energy is wasted, and that your generator is only active when needed. Where an equivalent unit would be active for 884 hours a year, a Boss cabin will only clock up 221 hours with the same usage, as it reserves energy. This smart system does not use energy unless it’s required, saving money on running costs. Standard welfare cabins can typically cost around £12 a day, but with the Eco-Ultimate you’re looking at as little as 56p per day .
Just by flicking as switch, the system automatically activates the generator, avoiding the need to manually turn on the cam switch or generator. Operating the cabin is a no brainer, like putting on the kettle at home. All this makes for a hassle free hire, allowing you to get your project done.
