Sunbelt Rentals adopts CESAR ECV Scheme

Sunbelt Rentals is the first plant hire company to upgrade existing fleet with CESAR ECV (Emissions Compliance Verification) Scheme. At Plantworx 2019, the CEA announced the launch of its biggest evolution of the CESAR scheme to date: the addition of Emissions Compliance Verification (ECV). CESAR ECV takes the machine's engine emission standard from the engines EU Type Approval number and displays it on a simple-to-read, colour-coded plate. CESAR ECV provides a quick and easy reference point where machines are working on sites where they are required to comply with Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) emission regulations.

All the information about the machine is then collated on a comprehensive, secure database accessible through a new ECV clearing portal. This information enables plant owners and operators, contractors and site managers to comply with any local policy or contractual obligation in place regarding machinery emissions levels. Thanks to the success of the CESAR security scheme there is a large quantity of machinery that already has CESAR fitted that will require upgrading to the new ECV system. All systems must be fitted by an authorised CESAR dealer to ensure the correct systems are fitted to each machine.  

Sunbelt Rentals UK is the first plant hire company in the UK to adopt an ECV upgrade programme across its fleet. Sunbelt has placed 2021/2022 orders for Stage 5 equipment spanning excavators, dumpers, telehandlers, compressors and rollers to the value of £55m. Tom Welland, Sunbelt Rentals business development director HS2 said, “With a clear need for a simple system that could cut down in confusion, wrong deliveries, wasted time and money, as well as the risk of non-compliant plant being used, the CESAR ECV scheme created in partnership with the CEA seemed the logical scheme to get behind and support.”

Sunbelt also recognises the need for the scheme outside of HS2. “This retrofit of our existing fleet will not only benefit our HS2 customers, but it will allow us to ensure we have the most compliant fleet of plant when working in all major cities within the UK and forms part of our wider sustainability strategy,” Tom added.
