Fischer Panda UK, a leading provider of sustainable mobile power solutions for commercial and specialist vehicles, has revealed that it has been nominated for the GREENFLEET Award for Industry Innovation. The prestigious annual GREENFLEET Awards will take place at the British Motor Museum in Warwickshire on Thursday 8thDecember.
GREENFLEET’s annual Awards is one of the most highly anticipated dates in the fleet sector calendar. Attended by high-ranking individuals from vehicle manufacturers to industry suppliers and complimented by the most forward-thinking fleet managers in the UK, the awards celebrate and recognise clean fleet innovation in more than 20 separate categories.
The GREENFLEET Award for Industry Innovation is presented to the organisation that has introduced a new technology, practice or method that reduces fuel consumption and emissions and demonstrates innovation in its design and/or implementation.
Fischer Panda UK was nominated in this particular category for their work with the leading news broadcaster Sky. By designing and installing hybrid mobile power systems onboard Sky’s Rapid News Gatherer vehicles, Fischer Panda UK assisted the news broadcaster in the reduction of carbon emissions and supported Sky News in winning the Broadcast Tech Innovation Award.
“We are delighted to have been shortlisted for GREENFLEET’s Award for Industry Innovation in recognition of our collaboration with Sky for their sustainable Ranger vehicle project,” said Chris Fower, Sales & Marketing Director for Fischer Panda UK. “It was an honour to have worked alongside Sky’s vehicle technology team to create a hybrid system for their fleet of Ranger vehicles, enabling them to be used for core functions, such as news reporting, with the engine turned off.”
Working with Fischer Panda UK contributed to Sky News winning The Broadcast Tech Innovation Award for its sustainable vehicle project. The aim of the project was to get the vehicles on the road to green transition and to reduce CO2 output when in operational service.
Fischer Panda UK offers full-system design capability, servicing and aftercare as a leading distributor of generators, air-conditioning systems, hybrid electric solutions and integrated mobile power solutions for a variety of commercial vehicles.
