Static Installation on Windy Hill

Question: How do you install a waterless wheel wash system under high voltage cables?

Answer: Very, very carefully.

The skill of our transport partners in Scotland, McGuire Transport, allowed us to safely install a waterless wheel wash for NRS Group at Scottish Power Electricity Network’s Windy Hill substation at Bearsden yesterday. With hundreds of thousands of volts flowing through the cables above our heads we had to off-load the wheel cleaner and install it using a hiab crane, ensuring that we didn’t exceed a safe working height of just 5 metres.

NRS chose our system partly because the remote site means water isn’t easy to source, but also because it has such a low profile, it is safer for vehicles to cross and keep as low as they can underneath the cables.

The consequences of getting this one wrong would’ve been hair raising….

Gold For Ecogreen

We’re very happy and excited to announce that we have just been awarded Gold Status by Constructionline – the single point of reference for all pre-qualification data for the construction industry that connects buyers with the suppliers they need, and ensures the suppliers stay compliant with all necessary standards.

Ecogreen Plant Hire Ltd were established in 2013 so are a relative newcomer to the industry, but our unique waterless wheel wash system is increasingly popular and our inventory has grown by 800% since we first started to supply. We run a very lean operation, but can deliver to anywhere in mainland UK with 5 days of contact.

We’d be delighted to discuss the wheel cleaning requirements on your construction, aggregates and landfill projects.
