ePowerTrucks Provides Tunnel Transport Solution For United Utilities

North West water company United Utilities recently carried out the most extensive inspection ever done on the Haweswater Aqueduct, which links the Lake District with Manchester. Its team of engineers were safely transported along its 56-mile length by electric shuttle vehicles.

Paul Anderton, Senior Project Manager at United Utilities, said: “We thought these vehicles would be perfect for running safely and cleanly through pipes which are the backbone of the North West’s water pipeline network.

“We tested a specially-adapted version in an empty pipeline under Cumbria’s Tarn Moor in preparation for a major inspection of the aqueduct.”

ePowerTrucks, based in Oldham, Greater Manchester, is the exclusive UK importer and distributor of Motrec vehicles, which are manufactured in Canada. The company provided technical support and after-sales care to United Utilities.

Jerry Hanss, Managing Director of ePowerTrucks, said: “Our electric vehicles work all over the UK, so it is nice to be involved in a project so close to home.
