33 of the towers have already been dispatched to Boels UK and used on various construction projects throughout the summer, as well as the lighting up of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in July and August.

According to Boels, the decision to deploy it at the event was made due to the “low-noise and cost-saving attributes” of the towers.

The lights are powered by advanced lithium battery technology, and according to Trime, can be fully recharged in less than two hours.

The illumination of the towers comes from six LED lamps, which is said to illuminate an area of over 3,000sq m.

Trime say the X-Eco Lithium Hybrid lights can be powered by batteries alone for 80% of a 10-hour working cycle and emits zero noise and zero carbon emissions while in use.

Gary Darley, operations director at Boels Rental Ltd, said, “We selected the Trime X-Eco Lithium Hybrid lights because of their sustainability features and their high-quality design and manufacture.

“Our customers value the cost-effectiveness of the Trime products. We exclusively run only Trime tower lights in the Boels Rental UK fleet, and these lithium lights will complement our existing fleet of X-Eco Hybrid and X-Chain sets.”
