Garic launches next generation hybrid welfare van

Garic will be unveiling a revolutionary welfare van featuring hybrid technology at this year’s Plantworx and Railworx show, 11th-13th June.

It was the first company to develop solar powered welfare equipment in the UK and now Garic has taken the use of solar energy to the next level. Its latest generation welfare van facilities can be powered throughout the day solely from its solar panels significantly reducing environmental impact and fuel costs.

Garic is also exhibiting a 40ft welfare trailer for the first time. With its improved layout, hybrid power and 4G WIFI, the unit can comfortably facilitate up to 15 workers.

Addressing the need for alternative power options, the company is launching a ground breaking self-sufficient, off-grid power supply, the Solatainer®. Created sustainably from a single-use 20ft ISO shipping container, the Solatainer® integrates renewable-power and storage with diesel-power back-up. It also reduces fuel consumption and carbon emissions.

Commenting on the show Garic’s director Neil Richardson said: “We can’t wait to show visitors the new products we’ve developed. We’ve been working very hard to make sure all of our welfare and site up equipment is as eco and cost efficient as possible whilst also providing the best quality facilities for those using them.

“Some of the new features are truly remarkable for example the way we are harnessing and storing solar power. Other developments, like adding fully flushing toilets to reduce the need for chemicals on site and creating space for separate male and female toilet cubicles, may seem simple but they are key to developing our products even further.”

Garic’s Rail divisional manager Ian Gosney added: “It’s great to see the rail sector represented at Plantworx this year. We have been testing our new innovations with a number of rail clients and are looking forward to demonstrating them to lots more rail companies and contractors visiting Railworx.”

These innovations and many more will be featured on Garic’s stand – LB19.
