First completely electric project relocation in Amsterdam
Cleaner city centre and reduces noise disturbances for residents • 100% electric relocation of the UvA’s Faculty of Law • with 3 electric lorries running on green energy • 1.5km of books, 2km of shelving, 2500 moving boxes and 250 workplaces
Last week, movers from Hulshoff set to work with three electric lorries, charged with green energy, for the University of Amsterdam’s Faculty of Law. More than 1500 meters of books, 2000 meters of shelving, 2500 moving boxes and 250 workspaces were moved from the Oudemanhuispoort to the Roeterseilandcampus within one week.
“Private moves have made use of electric moving vans for some time, but this is the first time that a relocation of this scale has been entirely powered with electricity” according to Gerry Hulshoff, Hulshoff Verhuizingen’s general director. “We are proud to contribute to air quality, CO2 emissions and noise disturbances in the centre of Amsterdam.”
The UvA required this move to be fulfilled using 100% electric vehicles. “With our location in the centre of Amsterdam we experience additional responsibilities to the residents and quality of life in the surrounding area. The UvA prioritises sustainability and we were very pleased that Hulshoff Verhuizingen was able to conduct a sustainable relocation of the Faculty of Law.” Andreas Sandbergen, UvA contract manager.
