Biomass fuel supplier Esken Renewables has unveiled a new truck and trailer with Remembrance Day livery.

With around 10% of its workforce being ex-armed services, the company said it wanted to do something special to recognise the huge contribution the armed forces have made to the UK.

The new vehicle, which is used to supply waste wood to biomass plants, will also be named Elizabeth in recognition of the late Queen who was head of the UK’s armed forces for over 70 years.

Esken Renewables is an Armed Forces Covenant gold award holder and the liveried truck and trailer was unveiled at a ceremony attended by representatives from the Reserve Forces’ & Cadets’ Association, Ministry of Defence and other organisations.

The new vehicle will be driven by Barry Fairhurst, an ex-armed services person who served with the Royal Corp of Transport up until 1990.
