WB Power Services buys Trime X-ECO lighting towers

Published:  24 October, 2018

Derbyshire-based critical power supply specialists, WB Power Services (WBPS), has expanded its rental fleet with the purchase of 20 X-ECO LED site lighting towers from Trime UK.

This is their first venture into the temporary site-lighting hire market and these sets will complement their current range of power generation products and ancillary equipment.

WBPS evaluated several different lighting towers before chosing the Trime X-ECO LED.

‘Last year we cross-hired a fleet of X-ECOs for one of our clients and the feedback we had from them was very positive,’ said John Campbell WBPS hire sales manager.

‘This constructive response was an important factor in our decision to prefer the Trime X-ECO LED. It’s obviously a well-made product with all the necessary features and benefits included as standard.’

Alongside the X-ECO LED’s environmental qualities, safety considerations are also at the forefront of its development. Consequently, the Trime X-ECO LED is fitted with the AMOSS safety system, which automatically lowers the mast if the lighting set is moved while 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.

Trime has calculated that the X-ECO LED uses approximately £336.00 less in fuel each month in comparison to a traditionally illuminated lighting set.

The Trime Group has over 50 years of experience in the development and marketing of environmentally sustainable lighting sets for the construction and rental markets. Trime UK is headquartered in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire; their manufacturing plant is based near Milan, Italy.
