Euromotive goes solar powered

Euromotive Components is pushing the boundaries of commercial vehicle auxiliary power with the introduction of solar power to the mix.

The Euromotive Components trade van is currently touring the country, demonstrating its solar power capabilities.

The van has a solar panel fitted to the roof. The power that is generated from the solar panel can be used to charge the auxiliary power unit on the van.

Karl Cuffe, of Euromotive Components says the company has already kitted out several vehicles, including a mobile library, and a number of emergency response vehicles with solar units.

Emphasising the green credentials of solar power, Karl says the use of solar results in significant fuel savings. Additional on-vehicle power comes from solar and not from the engine’s alternator.

Karl says that solar is perfect for mobile workshops, where there is a need for auxiliary power, and he is happy to work with clients to spec their vehicles to individual requirements.

Euromotive Components is developing a fine reputation as a supplier of quality lighting and ancillary products to truck and bus fleets, commercial vehicle body builders, trailer manufacturers, vehicle manufacturers, vehicle conversion specialists, truck / trailer agents, commercial motor factors, and the emergency services.

Euromotive Components recently move into a modern premises in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim which comprises an expansive warehouse, production facility, telesales offices and showroom.
