More green cabins for GAP

I’ve written before on this site about the boom in site welfare provision in the wake of the pandemic and it shows no signs of slowing.

GAP recently confirmed an order for 240 more towable units from AJC EasyCabin. This will extend its hire fleet to more than 1,700 welfare cabins by early 2021.

The two companies have worked together in the past to develop and test new products. This latest order includes the EcoHybrid automatic welfare unit and the EcoHybrid Solar model, as well as the EcoSmart Zero which runs on solar energy and hydrogen fuel cell power. Sizes range from 12ft to 22.9ft (3.65m to 7m).

GAP also reports that, after a successful two-month trial with one of its customers, it has ordered more AJC Mobile Solar Pod remote solar power generators and Solar Light Zero LED lighting towers.

Douglas Anderson, joint managing director at GAP, said, “Reducing carbon emissions in our operations is a major focus for us and we are quite demanding of our supply chain to work with us to make this happen. That means selecting like-minded suppliers and developing long-term partnerships with them.”

GAP won the Product of the Year trophy for the EcoSmart Zero in the HAE’s Hire Awards of Excellence 2020.
