The William Tracey Group has expanded its land remediation capability with the purchase of 4 state of the art low emission Tipper vehicles worth approximately £400,000.
The investment will support the growth of the Group’s Land Services division, which specialises in the treatment and recovery of hazardous and non-hazardous contaminated soils. The new low maintenance vehicles will reduce downtime resulting from mechanical failure improving the efficiency of the fleet, reducing costs and improving service levels.
The 8 wheeled vehicles are manufactured with aluminium alloy bodies to reduce the Tare (unladen) weight allowing it to legally transport an additional tonne or more in each load. This additional capacity further increases the vehicles’ efficiency. The Euro 6 engines are designed to enable the addition of Addblue a post-combustion technology treatment for diesel vehicles, which allows them to reduce their emissions of NOx (nitrogen oxides).
Graeme McDonald, Managing Director, Industrial and Utilities Division, said:
“At The William Tracey Group we are firm believers in constantly re-evaluating and developing our processes to become as efficient as possible. The expansion of our Tipper fleet with the latest most sustainable technology will both increase our capacity and enable us to maintain the highest standards of service. ”
Ian Valentine, Sales Manager, Outreach Ltd, adds:
“Outreach Ltd were delighted to supply William Tracey with these tippers. The higher than average sides allow the vehicles a bigger capacity than most alloy bodies. We hope that they make a strong addition to their fleet.”
