The Engineering Survey Team at Bermondsey Dive Under (BDU) have been trialling a Renault Kangoo Electric Van to look at the potential option to use the vehicle for the project duration.
What we did
During the month of May the Bermondsey Survey team took delivery of a Renault Kangoo Electric Van. The van, which charges off a standard plug socket, has been a great tool in helping to reduce the team’s emissions and costs, as well as offering a greener mode of transport for all of the other travelling team members.
The financial benefit against a diesel van was a saving of almost £2,000 over the remaining length of the BDU project. This was due to reduced fuel cost and no congestion charge.
The environmental benefit against a diesel van is a saving of 1.76 tonnes of CO2 over the remaining length of the BDU project.
The team are continuously seeking opportunities to make their operations greener and helping to improve local air quality and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
An electric van would be an ideal operational vehicle for projects which involve the transfer of materials to different sites.
With savings of around £160 per 1,000 miles and added benefits as summarised above. Investing in an electric van, gives the guaranteed cost and environmental savings, while also helping to make your project greener and deliver on cost targets.
