A fleet of 48 all-electric Nissan e-NV200 Combis have arrived at Portsmouth Naval Basic in a deal with BAE Techniques who manage the website on behalf of the Elegant Navy.
The agreement, also in association with fleet management specialists Lex Autolease with with whom Nissan and local dealership Yeomans Nissan Portsmouth have been doing work very closely, is aimed at making a more modern and energy powerful Naval Base fit with the 21st century, a key purpose for the Ministry of Protection.
And as part of the BAE Systems commitment to decrease emissions and grow energy efficiency round the site, 26 receiving points and 35 designated parking coves for electric cars are being installed.
The end result will be that the A hundred per cent electric Nissan vans will minimize carbon dioxide emissions by means of around 40 percent in comparison with the previous car or truck fleet.
In total, the actual conversion of more than a 3rd of BAE Systems vehicle fast to Nissans e-NV200 Combis will save 360,1000 in fuel as well as other costs over the period of the contract.
Darren Payne, Sales Movie director at Nissan Powerplant (GB), said: Nissans electrical vehicle technology is cutting-edge, and so its great synergy to get working closely together with world renowned BAE Systems to help save energy and reduce by-products at Portsmouths historic naval base. Of course the other legitimate bonus of functioning Nissan electric cars and trucks are the ultra low-running expenditures, starting from as little as 2 pence per mile.
Ian Anderton, integrated delivery director in BAE Systems, said: We been employed closely with Lex Autolease as well as Nissan to introduce this specific new fleet that creates a significant reduction to help carbon dioxide emissions and also respects our people need for a value for money solution. The reduced emissions and fuel take advantage of by replacing up to 50 % of the fleet along with Nissan electric cars or trucks would have a significant green impact on Portsmouth Naval Base.
The planned arrival of such a large number of Machine electric vehicles to aid our activities along at the Naval Base reiterates the companys persistence to creating more energy efficient options for working and following a latest technologies.
BAE Techniques has already introduced a variety of cost-effective, energy efficient measures on Portsmouth Naval Base such as the installing of solar panels, LED lighting fixtures in offices, Brought street lighting, air-source high temperature pumps and sensible control systems.
