Trents install two SEDA MDS6 depollution containers

Trents new MDS6 containers seen here with Steve Rudkin (site operations manager), Tony Peacock SEDA-Environmental UK Ltd and Kevin Lawrence (business and commercial manager) for the Charles Trent rugby site.
Following last month’s report, SEDA-Environmental UK Ltd is now up and running with its new set up in the UK, and the first order is under the belt.

The first order was from Charles Trent Ltd, with the delivery and installation of two of their MDS6 depollution containers.

These state of the art mobile containers can be picked up with a roll on roll off lorry and dispatched to any yard of their choice. With the quick coupling system they can be moved to any location or site required by Charles Trent. They are shown above after being installed at their Rugby Site (old mill lane).

If you would like to know more, then we covered the MDS6 in detail earlier in the year (click here to read the aticle). If you would like further information about this product or see it in action, contact Tony Peacock by email and he can arrange a viewing at the rugby site (via prior arrangement) to fulfil any of your questions or enquiries.

Alternatively, visit SEDA’s website to see the full product range which are all available to order from the UK network. If you have any servicing and maintenance requirements then contact Tony on his mobile, 07502023859 or email him.

SEDA will be at CARS 2016 so you can check out all of their latest range. Pop along and see them on stand C6 and see what they can do to help you with all your ELV requirements.
