Chepstow Plant international is committed to minimising the company’s affect upon the environment and by extension seek to push the industry boundaries on its approach. Chepstow Plant International provides a quality service that complies as a minimum to all industry environmental legislation, ensuring that the business remains at the forefront of driving down the impact this critical industry has on the environment.

Primarily, the business achieves this through substantial fleet investment, ensuring the latest and most environmentally conscious technology is utilised. Half of the company’s core contracting fleet utilises Tier 5 engines with the other half using Tier 4 engines, with investment plans laid to convert the main contracting fleet to Tier 5 over the next 12 months. This allows Chepstow Plant International to provide the most modern and lowest emission contracting fleet within Europe. This investment is supported by the company’s first class service and maintenance department, along with links with major equipment manufacturers in the UK to optimise client performance, whilst reducing its subsequent carbon footprint.

Through using cutting edge telemetry software and analysis, Chepstow Plant International partner with core clients to together build on zero carbon initiatives. One of the breakthrough areas Chepstow Plant Focus on, is its FOIL initiative:

  • Fuel -> excessive engine power
  • Operating -> brake vs retarder use in articulated dumptrucks
  • Idling -> idling vs loading times, to minimise wastage
  • Loading -> Monitor underfilled dumptrucks to ensure minimum trips

The company’s commitment to improving its own and customer environmental impact saw a recent case study save a core customer over 300,000 litres of fuel per year, just through equipment optimisation and applying Chepstow Plant’s FOIL initiative. Retraining operators, data analysis, understanding best and efficient working practices allowed for mutual collaboration between the two companies to eradicate unnecessary fuel waste and work towards the shared mutual goal of zero carbon.
