United Rentals, Turner Construction Partner on Sustainable Solutions at Meta Data Center Project

KANSAS CITY, MO — United Rentals, Inc. announces it will provide sustainable solutions to Turner Construction that include all-electric trucks and zero-emission power systems. Turner will use the rental equipment for construction of a hyperscale data center in Kansas City, Missouri for Meta, formerly the Facebook company, to reduce the environmental impact of the jobsite.

The equipment package includes the all-electric, zero-emissions Ford F-150 Lightning pickup truck with a range of up to 320 miles and a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds, in addition to a 9.6 kilowatt Pro Power onboard generator system.

“Turner is committed to leading the challenge of decarbonizing construction and working with innovative partners like United Rentals. These solutions allow us to demonstrate how the future of construction will look,” said Bill Hassel, Data Center Program Sustainability Manager, Turner Construction. “The ability to test cutting-edge electric vehicles such as the F-150 Lightning on a real-world construction site will provide valuable information on how electrifying construction equipment will help reduce emissions while driving productivity.”

United Rentals and Turner share a commitment to reducing the environmental impact of their operations and helping customers reduce their carbon footprint. The partnership will help United Rentals identify other construction projects where emissions-saving solutions can be deployed to work toward net-zero jobsites. This is also part of Meta’s efforts to reach net-zero emissions across its value chain in 2030.

“Turner and United Rentals are both committed to building a better future, which was a catalyst for our collaboration to drive eco-conscious changes on construction jobsites,” said Craig Schmidt, Vice President of National Accounts, United Rentals. “We look forward to continuing to partner with Turner on innovative, sustainable solutions that contribute to a safer, healthier environment.”
