Braehead Shopping Centre electrifies maintenance fleet

By / 5 years ago / International News / No Comments

The vehicles were supplied by ePower Trucks, and feature a custom-built trailer to transport 1,100-litre bins around the centre, plus a winter maintenance pack with an electric gritter and front-mounted snow plough.

Both are fully road legal, and offer a 40-mile electric range from an eight-hour charge, with a 2,000kg towing capacity and 600kg payload.

Braehead’s general manager Peter Beagley said: ‘Braehead has a huge commitment to the environment and making sure we reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. 

‘Already we recycle most of our waste and have introduced major energy-saving measures in the centre. The move to all-electric trucks instead of a diesel tractor, which will reduce our CO2 emissions, is part of our commitment to operating a greener and more sustainable business.’
