The world is facing an urgent need for both urbanisation and decarbonisation. Heavy industries such as construction, largely powered by diesel, account for a large proportion of carbon emissions. The construction industry is lagging behind in technology, productivity, and sustainability with the race to electrification and renewable energy.

Four Enertainers Model “L” was used to power four 64-tonne tower cranes at a Modular Integrated Construction site in Kwu Tung, Hong Kong. Kwu Tung is a rural area with limited power supply, so the Enertainer solved this problem. By using the Enertainers, the project was able to save HKD854,000/year on diesel fuel cost and 495,865 kg annual carbon reduction with a 61% CO2 reduction. Furthermore, there was zero on-site air pollution resulting in better conditions for workers.
