Trafalgar Wharf in Portsmouth has fitted ground-breaking technology to its giant forklifts to boost its green marine credentials.

The HUSS diesel particulate filters made in Palm Springs California, have been designed to meet the world¹s toughest environmental standards.

Jonny Boys, managing director of Trafalgar Wharf, said the firm has spent thousands of pounds on the equipment because they want to provide the best possible environment at their marina complex.

“We¹re the only Drystack storage facility that¹s got three huge Wiggins forklifts and they¹re busy machines. They move hundreds of boats in and out of the water every week,” said Mr Boys.

“These filters reduce up to 99.9% of the soot that comes out of the engines. It¹s better for the drivers, the boats and the environment.”

And it¹s not just filters that the marina has invested in. The newest Wiggins forklift that arrived just last month already has an incredibly clean Volvo Penta engine.

“We¹re always looking to be cleaner and greener. Our newest Wiggins marine forklift has a super green Volvo Penta engine, producing much lower emissions and a lot less noise,” Mr Boys said.
