The Midlands firm is undertaking a trial of an "on demand dual fuel generator system" on its new GreenMech chipper fleet, delivered in January.
Initial trials suggested a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 40 per cent, offering a significant saving on fuel expenditure. The generator system is also expected to reduce carbon emissions by up to 70 per cent by burning the fuel more efficiently.
Managing director Kevin O'Rourke explained: "If the on demand dual fuel generator system delivers the results we expect, all of our vehicles, chippers and chainsaws will be retrofitted with the units.
"Efficiencies can be passed on to our customers and the reduction in emissions can contribute to all of our customers' efforts in reducing waste and emissions."
