Murphy cleans up its act

Contractor J Murphy and Sons has said that it is working with diesel engine specialist Baumot to reduce particle emissions on its diesel-powered equipment fleet by up to 99%.

The company has said that it is rolling out use of diesel particulate filter (DPF) systems to all compatible equipment to meet with engine emission requirement standards set by mayor of London Boris Johnson last year.

“Using the DPF system has made a significant contribution to reducing our air emissions,” said Murphy environmental manager Stephen Marr. “This helped us achieve full compliance with strict air quality standards and minimising the impact on our employees and local communities.”

According to Murphy, the system was used on equipment used during the recent reconstruction of the Farnworth railway tunnel and helped to “safeguard the wellbeing of the onsite team”.
