Green initiative for c2c rolling stock
Recycling water used to wash trains has cut c2c’s water consumption by 60%, the operator has announced.
The train-washing facility at c2c’s East Ham depot has been upgraded to collect water used to clean each train. This is then filtered and returned to the pumps to clean the next.
c2c managing director Julian Drury said: “c2c has been part of the community for more than a decade, and we wanted to make sure we’re doing our bit for the environment. That’s why we’ve invested in our equipment so we can recycle more water and cut unnecessary waste.
“We take the appearance of our trains very seriously, but I’m delighted to say the results of this recycling initiative and our new cleaning products have been literally dazzling – our trains are as white as when they were new.”
