Milton Keynes-based ACE Plant has unveiled a hybrid fuel bowser and dust suppressor based on a used Volvo articulated hauler chassis. The firm adapts all-terrain vehicles that have reached the end of their useful road life to create low cost machines. Vehicles used previously have ranged from army trucks to fire engines, in addition to haulers. ACE managing director Frank Cundell said: 'Dust suppression and fuel storage are both areas where new regulations require firms to adopt environmentally better methods of operation, but the investment required to purchase new equipment can be onerous.' The latest machine is being used by Tarmac Western for its quarries. Tarmac boss Tim Hall said: 'Using four-wheel drive vehicles to deliver fuel to the site is a great advantage.'
