Braehead Shopping Centre electrifies maintenance fleet
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.’
