INFRASTRUCTURE services company FM Conway has increased its net zero commitment with a delivery of 12 new electric vans from Herd Group.

The latest initiative is part of the company’s commitment to switching 50% of their 1.5ft vehicles to fully electric by 2025 with the goal of changing all 1.5t vehicles to electric in the future.

The 12 new Renault Kangoo E-Tech’s will be used in London boroughs. Supporting the reduction of harmful emissions and helping to enhance the air quality in London.

The Renault Kangoo E-Tech’s were delivered to FM Conway ready for the roads, with Chapter 8 included in the livery requirements, which is best practice for maintenance and civil engineering companies in order to meet highway regulations.

Dan Conway, Plant, Transport and Workshop Director, said “The plan is to integrate more electric vehicles across the business to meet our 2025 target.”

“The Herd Group have made the fleet transition as seamless and efficient as possible. With lack of business interruption being key, the switch to electric vehicles has been no different to any new fleet changes. With the initial cost of EV vehicles being nearly double than traditional internal combustion engine vehicles, the lower running costs and reliability of electric vehicles makes them an economical choice until new technologies come through.”

Herd Group Fleet Director, Danielle Davison said: “The EV landscape is evolving at a rapid pace and adoption within the LCV space has now become a priority for many fleets. At Herd we understand the transition to electric needs careful consideration, as such, we work closely with customers to help identify vehicles that work from a range, payload, and capability perspective. Herd spent time working with FM Conway to understand not only the way the vehicles were used, but where and how this aligned with FM Conway’s broader net zero strategy.”
