MHM Plant is ready to light up the dark


MHM Plant a nationwide leading supplier of lighting towers is busily preparing for the forthcoming ‘lighting season’ following a significant investment in a wide range of site lighting solutions.

The company has taken immediate delivery of nearly seven hundred individual lighting towers from the Italian manufacturer, Trime.


The order comprises of traditional LED diesel engine powered X-ECO lights, alongside the increasingly popular X-HYBRID SOLAR and X-POLE SOLAR sets. A fleet of BABY-LITE (LED-4) lighting rigs complete MHM’s latest investment in lighting towers.

Mat Llewellyn, MHM Plant’s managing director said, “We already are shipping out our lighting sets to hire firms throughout the UK and Ireland. Judging by the amount of enquiries we are currently handling we expect this winter to be a very busy one for lighting. So we are making sure that we are well prepared to meet with this demand.”

“Although the Trime X-ECO LED diesel powered units remain one of our most popular lighting towers, there is a growing trend to seek out more sustainable units, hence our investment in hybrid solar sets,” added Mat.

The Trime X-HYBRID SOLAR lighting units are powered through an individually designed hybrid power supply system. This comprises of a solar panel connected to rechargeable batteries backed-up by a small diesel engine. The combined system substantially lowers fuel usage with a corresponding reduction of CO2 emissions. The X-POLE SOLAR is powered exclusively via battery and solar panels thus completely eliminating any carbon output. 

The BABY-LITE (LED-4) is manufactured exclusively for MHM. It features 4 no. 200W LED lamps fitted onto a 360º swivel and tilt lighting head, with a 4m vertical stainless steel manual mast. The base has been configured to accept most brands of petrol or diesel generators from 2 – 6.5kVA. This gives the hire firm complete flexibility to choose their individual power source.
