Pirtek working with Engine Carbon Clean to help reduce carbon footprint

04/09/2017 | General

The bulk of Pirtek’s work in the UK is replacing burst or damaged hydraulic hoses via the mobile service engineers, with each service engineer operating from a mobile vehicle workshop. With a high level of commitment to its customers, Pirtek relies on an expansive fleet of vehicles which must be ready to attend call outs across the country, at a moment’s notice.

Corporate Social Responsibility

In line with its CSR policy, Pirtek is committed to working with the franchise network to encourage the effective measuring of fuel usage and the efficiency of their mobile engineers with the aim of encouraging their network to operate the most energy efficient vehicles commercially available to achieve a greener fleet operation.

As part of this policy Pirtek were keen to utilise the Engine Carbon Clean service to ensure their vehicle fleet was running to the best of its ability to reduce both harmful emissions as well as fuel costs through efficient engines, combined with less wear and tear on components.

Engine Carbon Clean Service

A team from Engine Carbon Clean visited four Pirtek sites and carried out the innovative and fully mobile hydrogen service on a range of different vehicles across the fleet:

Pirtek Slough: 3x Mercedes Vitos, 1x Merc Sprinter, 1x Astra Van

Pirtek Park Royal: 3x transits

Pirtek Watford: 3x transits, 1x Fiesta van

Pirtek Leyton: 2x Transits, 1x Astra van


Pirtek monitored the average MPG figures across each of the 15 vans, starting two weeks prior to cleans and then up to ten weeks following. This has led to both fuel savings and less carbon being generated.


Phil Szarowicz , Centre Manager at Pirtek Leyton commented, “We have a wide range of vehicles in the Pirtek fleet carrying out a variety of mileage and driving patterns – anywhere from 2 to 20 miles between each customer visit – hence the results have varied from vehicle to vehicle. But overall we have seen a significant improvement in MPG across the whole fleet, which has contributed to both a reduction in our carbon footprint and a healthy fuel saving for the business.”
