At Bermondsey Dive Under we have used the Ecolite sets to reduce the impact of noise on our local community as well as reducing our carbon footprint.


The Structures Strengthening team introduced the use of an innovative lighting set which has significantly reduced potential disturbance to residential neighbours.

The challenge

Many of the Structures Strengthening work sites are in very close proximity to residential properties. The project team are keen to find ways to minimise the impact of the works on neighbours in order to improve community relations.

What we did

Skanska introduced the use of a low energy hydrogen fuel cell powered lighting system. This lighting is powered by a BOC Hymera fuel cell. The Ecolite H2 can be used in environmentally sensitive areas where all emissions and noise pollution need to be minimised.

There are no particulate emissions and as a result the process is virtually silent which is extremely important for our works at night time in the centre of London.


• Zero CO2 site emissions
• Zero noise
• Zero particulate emissions
• Zero servicing
