LONDON, December 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Niscayah has today announced its decision to replace its 335 strong fleet with new, low emission vehicles, significantly reducing the company's carbon footprint.
Niscayah, one of the UK's leading integrators of CCTV, access control, intruder detection and fire alarm systems has a fleet of 335 vehicles in the UK comprising work vans, estate cars and executive cars that between them cover some 8.2 million miles each year.
By December 2009, one quarter of the existing vehicles will have been replaced reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 59 tonnes per year or, put another way, enough gas to fill 12 hot air balloons*. In 2010 a further 124 vehicles will be replaced, more than doubling the figure.
David Ensum, Nisacayah's Fleet Services Manager said About 90% of new vehicles will be acquired from the Vauxhall ECOflex range which boasts the lowest fuel consumption figures in the Vauxhall line up and carbon dioxide emissions, on average, 12% less than the cars they replace. The new models also use more recycled materials and recyclable parts than ever before.
Don Cameron, Country President for Niscayah commented We run a lot of vehicles and any improvement in carbon dioxide emissions will have a big impact. It's just one of a range of measures we are taking under our new environmental policy to significantly reduce our carbon footprint.

We consult, design, install, maintain and support security systems that integrate the best of breed technologies (CCTV, access control, intruder detection and fire protection) from the world's leading manufacturers.
