United Rentals announced that it will provide sustainable solutions to Turner Construction, including all-electric trucks and zero-emissions power systems.
Turner will use the rental equipment for the construction of a hyperscale data center in Kansas City, Missouri, for Meta, formerly the Facebook company, to reduce the environmental impact of the construction site.
Equipment package includes Ford F-150 Lightning all-electric, zero-emissions pickup truck with up to 320 miles of range and 10,000-pound maximum towing capacity, plus a Pro Power on-board generator system of 9.6 kilowatts.
“Turner is committed to taking on the challenge of decarbonizing construction and working with innovative partners like United Rentals. These solutions allow us to show what the future of construction will look like,” said Bill Hassel, data center program sustainability manager, Turner Construction. “The ability to test the peak productivity of electric vehicles like the F-150 Lightning on an actual construction site will provide valuable insight into how electrifying construction equipment will help reduce emissions while driving.”
United Rentals and Turner share a commitment to reducing the environmental impact of their operations and helping customers reduce their carbon footprint. The partnership will help United Rentals identify other construction projects where emission reduction solutions can be deployed to work towards net zero jobsites.
