sustainability certification

Speedy Hire PLC has announced a partnership with Niftylift to develop and produce the world’s pioneering hydrogen-electric powered access platform.

While, Speedy Hire is a company specializing in tools and equipment hire services; Niftylift is a England-based manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms.

The hydrogen-electric powered platform will be designed and manufactured in collaboration with Niftylift and made available for rental in Milton Keynes.

A powered access platform plays a crucial role in the construction industry, providing elevated work platforms. The introduction of this hydrogen-electric powered access platform offers a viable alternative to diesel-powered equipment, particularly in early-stage construction sites where electrical infrastructure may be limited.

With the ability to operate for up to five days on a single charge, the hydrogen-electric powered access platform produces zero carbon emissions, making it environmentally friendly and reducing its impact on the atmosphere.

“The world’s first hydrogen-electric powered access platform will roll off the production line at Niftylift and be delivered to Speedy Hire’s innovation centre in Milton Keynes during July,” the company said.

Chief Executive Dan Evans said: “Our investment into this partnership with Niftylift enables us to accelerate the sustainable and technological evolution of the sectors we operate in and supports our ambitious plan to become a net zero business by 2040, ten years ahead of the government target.”
