Dorset based HMP Portland has invested in 5 EP 500 electric platform trucks from ePower Trucks.

The zero emission all-electric pedestrian trucks will be used by the on-site maintenance and housekeeping teams.

The EP 500 is a pedestrian-controlled electric platform truck that is perfect for indoor and outdoor use, it has great stability and can carry up to 500kg.

Previously the on-site teams have been moving waste & laundry manually, however now they can use the EP 500 to not only save time but also reducing the manual handling risk to the staff.
