Reducing carbon footprint with greener SPMTs
Specialist logistics and transportation specialist for large assets, Osprey Group has further expanded its fleet of SPMT bringing its number of axle lines based in the UK to over 100. The company has added four 6-axle SPMT units, with three Z180 PPUs.
The new SPMT units also have solid fill tyres that will offer an increase in axle loadings. This investment means clients have access to an increased number of SPMT axles already based in the UK. In addition, those axles are geared to the sustainability issues that are becoming so important in project management.
Much of the equipment used in specialist logistics is confined to older, less eco-oriented technology. While retrofitting may be an option in the long term, these new additions to our SPMT fleet are a sign of achievable, forward-thinking – increasing the number of highly capable UK-based axles, with greener credentials defining that expansion. This investment in new SPMTs also helps to minimise our environmental footprint while expanding UK-based capability for clients. The units use AdBlue technology, and the new PPUs are equipped with the latest Euro 5 engines.
Dean Graham, Operations & QHSE Director. “The growth of our SPMT fleet complements our existing full scope of services covering installations, heavy cranes and barge activities – these axles are here, ready to use. AdBlue also reduces engine emissions measurably, which is better for the environment.”
