Trime has been honoured by environmental campaigners, the Green Organisation, winning a coveted gold award for its X-SOLAR/HYBRID lighting tower.

Trime CEO Ray Caulfield and MD Paul Hay were presented the award at a glittering ceremony held at The Royal Horseguards Hotel, in Whitehall, London. The original 2020 event had to be postponed due to the pandemic.

“Our aim with this project was to develop a lighting tower that was powered from a combination of solar and battery power, with just a small fuel-efficient diesel engine as back-up,” explains Paul Hay.

“The X-SOLAR HYBRID has rapidly become a popular product with rental and construction organisations. To have its environmental qualities formally recognised is indeed an honour. This award has confirmed that the X- SOLAR HYBRID is an environmentally accredited product.” 

The X- SOLAR HYBRID itself is powered by a combination of solar energy and battery power, backed-up by an engine driven battery charging system to ensure continual illumination. The set delivers a light coverage of 2400 square metres, combined with up to 3000 hours of uninterrupted running without refuelling. For 95% of its operation, it emits zero noise along with 97% zero emissions. 

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and are run by The Green Organisation – an independent, international, non-political, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
