The Ferrovial Agroman Laing O’Rourke joint venture, FLO, delivering the Northern Line Extension project has been awarded with a Green Apple for its efforts in maximizing the transport by the River Thames.
This is the second time the NLE project has been awarded with a Green Apple.
Having previously won the award in 2016 for its fully integrated environmental monitoring system called SigiCom, which measures a variety of environmentally sensitive parameters such as vibration, dust and noise in real time and without the need for attended monitoring.
For 2018, together with GPS Marine, the marine contractor on the Thames and Medway, have been awarded due to their efforts in maximizing the transport of materials by the River Thames and minimizing lorry movements through central London. These measures have extra environmental benefits as reducing emissions of toxic pollutants from the busy streets of London and substantial carbon savings compared to HGVs along with a reduction in congestion on roads and risk reduction to vulnerable road users.
“This was a huge logistical feat and a well-deserved accolade for the strong collaboration, combined efforts and team work shown in delivering this huge success. I would like to thank the FLO environmental team lead by Matt Brinklow and Claudia Quitian for their seamless commitment to promoting environmental standards at FLO”
