Amey introduced a fleet of new battery powered grounds maintenance equipment that has transformed its service at the MOD‘s UK Hydrographic Office and supports our clients’ green ambitions as well as delivering significant cost benefits.  

A strong focus on sustainability and energy management sits behind the choice of battery power for grounds management equipment, including mowers, strimmers and blowers.  


Key benefits include:  

  • Removing dependency on fossil fuels 
  • Reduced pollution and noise 
  • Driving down costs 

The new machinery is also lighter, making it easier to operate for longer periods. Reduced vibration makes for quieter operation, to the benefit of both operators and nearby office workers.  


The success of the initiative has driven plans to replicate it across the Avon & Somerset Courts contract.
