Tarmac orders UK’s first battery electric mixer truck

28 June 2022/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain, Operations Management, Net-Zero


Tarmac has placed an order with Renault Trucks for the first battery electric mixer truck in the UK.

Due to be delivered in Autumn 2022, the electric mixer will be immediately put to work at Tarmac’s Washwood Heath site in Birmingham, supplying essential construction materials to customers across the West Midlands.  

The sustainable construction solutions business is set to work with Renault Trucks and Total Vehicle Solutions (TVS) to develop the next generation of mixers, with ambitions for widespread use across its urban operations.

In addition to making the transition to zero tailpipe emissions, EV mixers reduce noise and vibration, while contributing to improving air quality, particularly when operating in urban areas and low and zero emissions zones. 

 

John Anderson, Logistics Director, Tarmac, said:

“This order marks the first practical step towards a whole fleet transition to electric mixers and demonstrates our commitment to lead by example as we continue to turn our net zero ambitions into actions."
