Lighting the way to Net Zero at TCP

Headquartered in Maldon, Essex and with depots in Coventry, Leeds, Exeter and Scotland, Taylor Construction Plant (TCP) Group offers rental and sales of construction equipment across the UK.  

After being founded 30 years ago as a plant supplier, TCP has expanded over the years and now provides sustainable plant solutions through its new division called TCP ECO. Alongside the selling and rental of a comprehensive hydrogen-powered product range, TCP also manufactures the world’s first low-energy, hydrogen-fuelled LED lighting tower.

The tower is powered by a BOC Hymera fuel cell. This means that, instead of creating polluting exhaust fumes, the tower creates clean power, water vapour and even zero noise, making it the ultimate eco-friendly lighting solution! TCP has been developing its hydrogen fuel-cell applications as a sustainable alternative to other fuels such as diesel, since 2013. Very much ahead of the curve, TCP ECO’s hydrogen fuel-cell equipment has been available to hire since 2015.

Essex County Council’s Climate Czar Peter Schwier recently visited TCP’s headquarters in Maldon for a tour of the facilities. Here’s what he had to say: “I’m so proud of what TCP has already achieved for our county. As a large local employer and organisation, they are developing, manufacturing and supplying world-leading environmentally friendly products to other businesses across the region and nationally. I’m really excited to see what’s next for TCP!”
