Fully amphibious excavator improves production on low water burial for next phase of London Array Wind Farm

WM Plant Hire takes delivery of a new 30 tonne CASE long reach excavator. Fitted with the latest Tier 4 engine, this machine demonstrates low fuel consumption together with low emissions. With additional side mounted cameras the machine also proves a higher level of safety.

The 115 tonne CAT excavator with 30m reach was mobilised to the Port of Southampton for essential maintenance dredging work. Fitted with an underwater GPS dig system the machine was able to ‘spot dredge’ the areas that would pose a problem for ships to berth safely.

Construction of the massive Cross Rail Project in London required a number of deep excavations for tunnelling equipment and the new stations. At Tottenham Court Road WM Plant Hire provided their 65 tonne excavator with 24m reach. The machine was selected for its high production and efficiency.

The decommissioning of the Bradwell Nuclear Power Station involved the removal of an extensive water intake and outflow structure. Two long reach excavators mounted on self-propelled barges were fitted with GPS dig computers to monitor the excavation and provide ‘as built’ records. The machines used specialist attachments to clear the steel piles of silt allowing divers to have access to dismantle and remove the piles.
