Somerscales Heavy Haulage

Heavy Haulage contractor John Somerscales Ltd were the latest in a number of traditional businesses to invest in a solar PV system when they recently expanded into their new premises in Immingham.

To help achieve their green goals as well as reduce the running costs of the new depot, the company brought in local energy efficiency specialist Flixborough Eco Technologies who tailored a solar PV system for the new offices and workshop building. The offices received an 8kW system (seen in the above picture), and the workshop received a 30kW system.

To assist in the financing of the project, John Somerscales Ltd engaged the services of Kingston Capital Finance Ltd (KC Finance). As different businesses have different requirements, KC Finance works with their clients to find the best lender and finance structure to fit their needs and were therefore able to tailor a finance package that allows the company to meet the cost of the project over five years in a tax efficient way.

“I’m extremely happy with the solar PV project so far which has gone without any problems.”

John Somerscales, Managing Director of the company explains, ‘We’ve always sourced the most fuel efficient vehicles for our heavy transport operations, so when it came to our new depot project we wanted the best possible energy efficiencies in place. I’m extremely happy with the solar PV project so far which has gone without any problems. Both Flixborough Eco Technologies and Kingston Capital Finance have made the process simple and we’ve ensured our energy efficiency credentials for many years to come’.
