Technical engineering solutions provider SPIE UK is aiming to replace 98% of its fleet with alternative fuel vehicles by 2025. To that end, the company has taken delivery of 60 Nissan e-NV200 vans. To maximise the efficient use of the vans, SPIE has equipped them with three accessories from Rhino Products, including the PipeTube Pro, SafeStow4 and the DeltaBar.

Each of the vans is kitted out with two PVC-lined Rhino PipeTube Pros, to carry lengthy pipe and conduit safely and securely. The DeltaBar system selected by SPIE is a durable roof bar system made of high tensile alloy steel, while SafeStow4 is a ladder storage and handling solution. 

“Build quality, safety, security and reliability were the key areas of focus that we looked into when purchasing our fleet accessories,” said Keith Atkins, head of feet at SPIE UK.

“We are notably impressed with the SafeStow4 ladder storage, installed to ensure our engineers can safely and securely stow and deploy their ladders from the roof of our vehicles, all from ground level.”
