Tivoli Commences Trial of Electric Fleet

on Wednesday, 29 July 2020. Posted in News

Tivoli has introduced a long-term modernisation programme for equipment and vehicles with a view to replacing them with electric or hybrid versions where possible, helping the company to achieve its goal of becoming carbon neutral in the next 12 months. A company-wide assessment of its existing equipment is underway, and the company is looking to bring in electrified replacements where possible.

This is an ongoing project that is likely to require an investment of around £15 million in the future. Tivoli is actively looking to work with a small number of OEM partners that meet expectations for reliability, cost of ownership, environmental footprint and provide good product support.
 
The future investment includes renewal of the whole fleet of around 650 vehicles, with an aim of replacing fossil-fuels with electricity wherever possible. In line with this plan, the company has commenced a trial of electric vehicles, with the first eNV200 delivered to their Walthamstow depot last week.

Tivoli’s CEO Darren Cunningham says: “We’re trying to move towards entirely electric and hybrid vehicles, but they have to be fit-for-purpose”
 
In circumstances where EV’s are not a practical solution, Tivoli will look at the suitability of a hybrid, before opting for a conventional eco-vehicle as a last resort.
 
Darren himself is currently trialling a Nissan Leaf EV, further demonstrating Tivoli’s commitment to its fleet modernisation programme.

Darren added: “We have a moral responsibility to the areas we maintain. We’re a green business at the end of the day, so why aren’t we making a much bigger commitment to the communities in which we serve and support.”
