With increasing diesel prices, contractors seek alternatives, and the energy-efficient PPB offers a cost-effective easy to use solution.

In its 20th year of operation, Makinex is launching its ground-breaking Portable Power Box (PPB). As industries and consumers globally pivot towards eco-friendly energy, the PPB emerges as a pivotal innovation in clean and green power.

Global energy consumption is on the rise, impacting the construction industry where energy expenses can exceed 5 percent of project budgets. With increasing diesel prices, contractors seek alternatives, and the energy-efficient PPB offers a cost-effective easy to use solution.

Makinex's Portable Power Box is a blend of efficiency, convenience, portability and durability featuring:

  • Capacity: 6kw of output power combined with up to 15kWh of storage, catering to demanding energy needs.
  • Rapid Charging: Powers up in just seven hours, boosting on-site efficiency.
  • User-Friendly Design: Features include a robust frame for easy storage and maneuverability.
  • Advance Safety Features: RCD protection, with thermal overload protection, this IP44-rated unit provides weather resistance, ensuring reliability and durability for a long operational experience.
  • Versatile Charging Options: Compatible with 240V mains or solar PV.
  • Multiple Connection Options: Includes 3x15A outlets, 2x5V USB-A outlets.
  • Indoor Friendly: Safe for use in confined spaces.

Consumers are demanding green solutions. Recent research indicates more than 75 percent of U.S. consumers say a sustainable lifestyle is important to them, supported by studies showing that products with ESG (environmental, social and governance) claims are outperforming competing companies. Using environmentally conscious equipment like the PPB can also strengthen the reputation of companies with regulators, suppliers and workers.

John Stewart, CEO of Makinex, believes the PPB is a huge step towards renewable portable power for the construction industry.

"The Portable Power Box is revolutionary - a noise free, fuel free, emissions free portable solution,” Stewart said. “Construction companies are facing more environmental challenges than ever before - regulatory bodies are tightening restrictions on carbon emissions, and customers are demanding renewable solutions. Our future-first tools like the PPB are crucial for businesses, big or small, in the industry. The investment is an accessible and affordable way to lower costs and reduce our environmental impact. It's a win-win for industry and for the planet."

The PPB has been nominated for the Innovative Product Awards at World of Concrete 2024, where Makinex will be exhibiting.
