Ireland's MW Hire Group Invest in Tower Lights

Ireland’s MW Hire Group Invest in Tower Lights

The County Kilkenny based plant and pump hire specialists, MW Hire, have made a substantial investment in lighting towers, opting to purchase a fleet of VB9 lighting sets from TowerLight SRL, the Italian manufacturer.

According to the company, tests have proven that the VB9 will reduce fuel usage by 72% by simply utilising a smaller engine combined with a series of electronics that ensures the metal halide lighting output is not compromised. If this is the case, then this reduction in fuel use equates to an average saving of up to €350 per month, when compared to traditional lighting towers.

Commenting on this recent purchase, MW Hire owner, Matty Walsh said “In these difficult times we decided to invest in the TowerLight VB9, principally because we were impressed with its green credentials. These sets will provide our customers a great lighting tower - which gives them substantial savings - whilst helping to benefit the wider environment”

The MW Hire Group was established in 1992 and they are located in Urlingford, The company offers a wide range of plant and equipment for hire throughout the Country and have ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 accreditation.

Volvo ABG 6870 PavesVolvo pavers gets the thumbs up at Breedon

With years of experience with ABG 473s and one of the first ABG 6870s sold in the U.K., Breedon Aggregates has given the thumbs up with purchase of a second 6870 wheeled paver for its fleet.

The new Volvo ABG6870 wheeled paver continues a long association with the ABG product for Breedon Aggregates and according to Breedon’s Contracting Director Kevin Carmichael was chosen principally for the quality and smoothness to the finished mat. “Besides that, our operating crews have a decisive input to the purchasing decision and they certainly appreciate the machine’s low noise levels, manoeuvrability and easy to use controls,” he commented.

Breedon Aggregates will also benefit from some significant improvements introduced on the ABG6870 over its predecessor, such as, up to a 25% fuel saving and a massive 9 dB(A) reduction in external noise levels – an important point for the company who specialise in local authority, urban and private contracts as well as major trunk road maintenance from the central belt to the highlands and islands and the north of Scotland.

Reliability is also a key area for considering the ABG6870 says Mr Carmichael. “With the type of work we do, the machine has to be available seven days a week, 52 weeks a year and we’ve enjoyed a relatively high reliability with our existing fleet of ABG pavers.” For complete peace of mind, a full repair and maintenance programme for the new paver is being taken care of by Volvo Construction Equipment under its Blue customer support agreement.

Breedon Aggregates’ contracting services business is one of the longest established in the UK and is the market leader in the North of Scotland for motorway and trunk road maintenance. The Company is the largest independent aggregates company in the UK, employing over 800 people in Central England, East Anglia, Eastern England (through recently-acquired C&G Concrete) and Scotland, supplying a wide range of products and services to the construction and building sectors. Besides operating ABG pavers, the company also deploys a range of other Volvo Construction Equipment products at its facilities nationwide.
