The Girbau TBS-50 batch washer has been awarded Water Technology List (WTL) approval for its outstanding water efficiency. This means businesses purchasing a new TBS-50 tunnel washer can benefit from 100% tax relief under the Government’s Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) Scheme.
Girbau’s HS 6 Series range of washer-extractors have also been WTL-approved since 2014.
The ECA scheme lets businesses write off 100% of the cost of purchasing a new Girbau WTL-approved machine against taxable profits in the year of purchase. Only machines on the approved WTL list qualify and the tax relief is only available for the purchase of new machines.
To be included on the Water Technology List, strict criteria regarding a machine’s water usage per kg must be achieved. The TBS-50 has been approved with a maximum water consumption of just 3.5 litres per kg.
The Girbau TBS-50 range of tunnel washers comprises the TBS-Multi, the TBS-Hygien and the TBS-Flexi with compartment loading capacity ranging from 35 to 55kg.
