Aggreko invests £30m to kickstart green construction boom
The Greener Upgrades initiative will help construction managers make the move to more sustainable temporary solutions on site.
Aggreko has already pledged, by 2030, to reduce the diesel fuel used by customers by at least 50%, reduce local air quality emissions in its products by at least 50%, and achieve net zero emissions across its business operations.
Initiatives include investment into new technologies like hydrogen power generation units which has led to major construction companies like Morgan Sindall Construction and Sir Robert McAlpine working with Aggreko on various decarbonisation projects across their sites to trial new products and approaches.
In the coming months Aggreko will be launching a new online estimator which will help construction professionals visualise the sustainable savings they can make on site, including the level of reduction of CO2, local emissions, and fuel. The tool is intended as an indicator of what could be possible, ahead of experts carrying out a full, detailed assessment of the project.
Chris Rason, Managing Director of Aggreko said: “Managing the energy transition is by far one of the biggest challenges for industry today and businesses are now mapping the move away from less-efficient practices.
“While recent events have made changes more difficult, there is now an opportunity to ‘build back better’ by choosing equipment that can kickstart a green construction boom. We are privileged to be already supporting many on their journey and welcome any new conversations as a result of this initiative.”
