EXECUTIVE REPORT


Showman’s saves energy


EHN reviews a selection of new products launched at the recent Showman’s Show in Newbury for the events market.


A striking characteristic of this year’s Showman’s Show was the considerable number of exhibitors with new products designed to meet event organisers’ demands for environmentally-friendly equipment to lower their carbon footprint. Being launched at the event was Morris Site Machinery’s TL-90 iLED, which has four 300W LED lamps. The manufacturer was highlighting the fact that the machine is fitted with a sophisticated telemetry system that enables it to be switched on and off remotely via an app on a mobile phone or computer, as well as monitoring operational parameters such as battery condition and fuel level, sending alert messages if necessary.


Morris’ TL90 iLED can be operated remotely.


Morris says that, as well as improving efficiency, this can enhance Health & Safety as operators do not need to negotiate construction sites or highway verges to control the lights. The company also announced that it has been appointed as the UK distributor for generators made by Inmesol of Spain, which span power outputs of between 6kVA and 500kVA, and which will complement the Denyo models that Morris currently offers.


BGG launched the LiON hybrid lighting tower.


BGG UK launched the LiON hybrid lighting tower which incorporates a 1,500rpm Kohler water-cooled diesel engine and a Lithium-ion battery pack. The former re-charges the battery during daylight hours, so the machine can run without engine assistance during the night, giving silent operation. The company says that 2.5 hours of charging provides sufficient power for 10 hours’ operation at 80% depth of discharge, with no emissions. The LED lamps are claimed to give similar output to that of metal halide fittings.

Thermobile was amongst several suppliers displaying new heating equipment, including a range of indirect-fired propane models from 16kW to 45kW, claimed to have an efficiency rating of 91%. Also on the stand was the Coolmobile CR,


an electric machine which can be used to both cool and heat marquees and other temporary structures. The largest model, the CR34, provides a maximum air flow of 7,000m3
