Dropless have supersized!
We want to make our services more accessible, and inclusive, to businesses across the country to help them reduce their water wastage, save time, and save money. Dropless are excited to announce the launch of Hydroloop, a new ‘touchless’ cleaning process for HGVs that utilises a biodegradable solution and filtration system to recycle and reuse water.
It is estimated that the HGV industry could potentially save at least 296 million* litres of water and £14 million** per year in driving hours that are lost travelling to and from traditional HGV wash stations.
Saving your business time and money
Hydroloop’s water recycling system offers HGV fleet owners a way to save time and money. Not only that but it will decrease CO2 emissions by reducing water wastage, chemical processing and time spent driving to and from wash stations. By coming to the vehicle’s location, Hydroloop offers a convenient option that also reduces driving time for already time-poor HGV drivers.
The ‘touchless’ cleaning technique uses a biodegradable solution that interacts with dirt in a way that allows fleets to be spotlessly cleaned through rinsing alone – guaranteeing a thorough, eco-friendly clean without the risk of abrasive marks being left on the vehicle. Combined with a bespoke water filtration system, Hydroloop extracts and separates dirt from used water collected in a ‘reclaim mat’ and recycles it for reuse.
Designed with fleet owners and managers in mind, Hydroloop is a mobile service. Hydroloop vans are fully equipped with everything needed to deliver HGV cleaning at a location of choice. Due to its closed loop system the Dropless team can be totally self-sufficient, removing the need for on-site power, water or drainage.
Words from the co-founder:
“With the entire haulage industry looking for ways to make transportation lower carbon in order to help achieve net zero targets, Hydroloop promises a fast, eco-friendly and practical alternative to traditional HGV washing. Added together, the time spent travelling to, and waiting around at static wash stations is a massive money and time waster, not to mention the huge volumes of water wasted. Our closed loop, mobile system means we can get vehicles cleaned and back on the road more quickly and efficiently, whilst helping HGV fleet owners to reduce their carbon emissions.”
– Mike Grindy, CEO and co-founder of Dropless

*Potential water saving calculation: 493,600 commercial vehicles over 3.5-tonnes registered in the UK. An estimate of each vehicle being cleaned once every six months = 987,200 cleans per year or 296 million litres of water (https://www.hgvalliance.com/Haulage-Facts).
**Potential fleet saving calculation: The average travel time to a fixed-location HGV wash station is 40 minutes, with queuing and cleaning taking approximately 20 minutes = 60 minutes in total. Based on an average HGV salary (https://www.totaljobs.com/salary-checker/average-hgv-drivers-salary)
