Four pieces of machinery have been granted individual exemptions from the tighter emissions limits in operation in central London. Three of the pieces of machinery had been retro-fitted with abatement equipment in order to obtain the exemptions.

Seven individual machine deployments have taken advantage of the block exemption from the tighter emissions limits for generators.

No pieces of machinery have been granted exemptions from the less strict limits in place outside the Central Activity Zone and Canary Wharf areas.
