April 12, 2016

Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire:
The streets of Great Britain are set to be even cleaner following the launch of hydrogen-powered dual-fuel road sweepers, which are helping to reduce emissions to an all-time low.

Gloucestershire-based manufacturer Stock Sweepers is fitting autonomous electrolysers to their vehicles, so that councils across the country can meet and exceed their clean air targets.

Managing Director Jeff Stock made the announcement following the launch of the hydrogen-powered system, which not only reduces emissions, but also increases fuel efficiency by approximately 30%.

“We have been working to create a system which is truly groundbreaking.” said Jeff.

“Our sweepers not only have the advanced technology to make our roads cleaner, but now the environment will be cleaner too.”

“This is a world’s first and it’s happening right here in Great Britain.”

The hydrogen-powered system has been produced following seven years of development supported by the European Union and The University of Sheffield.

Prince Edward's Royal Visit

On the 24th of April 2014, The Forest of Dean received a visit from Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and it will be one that everyone at Stocks Sweepers will remember.

It was a great honour to have the Earl of Wessex drive our latest S6400 road sweeper, he even operated the sweep gear! After jumping out of the road sweeper, Prince Edward's first words were "It still appears to be in one piece", to which our Director Jeff agreed as he handed him a certificate for passing First Stage Driver Training.

It truly was a great day, and an honour to have the Earl of Wessex drive our S6400 road sweeper. Stocks Sweepers would like to thank everyone involved in making the day such a success.
