BMSI are helping Heathrow to achieve their carbon emissions targets by using a 100% electric vehicle on site.
Hoping to lead the way to a more energy-efficient future, BMSI’s Nissan NV200 electric van is already having a tangible, positive impact on air quality at Heathrow Airport. Used to transfer equipment and deliveries around the site, statistics from the last two years of using the van have demonstrated impressive savings across the board.
BMSI’s Regional Manager for Aviation, Gary Rackham, is proud to extol the benefits of BMSI’s latest green-focused endeavour:
“In just over 2 years of use, our van has done 6,022 miles and our calculations show that we have saved 1,550 kg of CO2 and £561 in the cost of electric to diesel fuel – and this is from using just one vehicle.
The environmental and economic benefits of making this transition are obvious, and we are proud to be a supplier that is actively integrating transport solutions that are of value to the environment into our work. We are also thrilled that our efforts are contributing in some small way towards Heathrow reducing their carbon emissions and air quality.”
BMSI Director, James Smith, is confident of a shift within the industry, commenting:
“Innovation, sustainability and efficiency are some of the core values that underpin so much of the work that we do here at BMSI. By advocating the use of transportation that is beneficial to the environment, we hope to encourage change, not just throughout BMSI’s own UK-wide regions, but also amongst the wider BMS and construction industry itself.”
