Murphy Plant, part of the infrastructure company J. Murphy & Sons Limited, is continuing to make further major investments in sustainable lighting towers supplied by Trime UK Limited.

This latest order is for thirty X-ECO LED and five X-SOLAR lighting sets. Murphy Plant now has a fleet of almost one hundred and fifty Trime lighting towers, including twenty-six solar powered units.

The Trime X-SOLAR lights are powered by series of advanced solar panels that renders them entirely emission and noise free. The X-ECO LED has a number of environmental qualities and safety aspects. The set is fitted with the AMOSS safety system, which automatically lowers the mast if the lighting set is moved whilst the mast is still erected, and the energy saving LED lamps will work for up to 50000 hours without replacement.

Commenting on this latest fleet investment Mike Carpenter, Managing Director, Murphy Plant said, “Working in close liaison with Trime, we are continuing to develop and broaden our tower light fleet. This is based upon the overall quality of the Trime products and the wide range of lighting solutions that suit our various applications right across our project requirements. We find that the lighting performance and durability of the Trime products are unmatched in the market, and we continue to be well supported from an after-sales perspective by Paul (Hay) (Trime UK MD) and his UK team”. 

“Our relationship with Trime has introduced us to other Trime products. Recently they’ve installed two, water-saving, X-SPLASH wash bay systems, at our Cannock depot, and our new Plant Hub based in Hemel Hempstead”, added Mike.

Murphy Plant is responsible for the day-to-day enablement and operation of plant, equipment and transport for Murphy. The Plant team offer everything from small electrical drills to a 135 tonne crawler-crane, or even specialist equipment within rail, pipelines, tunnelling, marine or ground engineering.

Trime has significant knowledge in the lighting tower market, developing and marketing environmentally sustainable lighting sets for the construction and rental markets. Trime UK is headquartered in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire; their manufacturing plant is based near Milan, Italy.
