The construction of the new St Germans pumping station near Kings Lynn is well underway, with the massive temporary cofferdam nearing completion.

At the Olympic site in east London, works are progressing well at Prescott Channel to install a lock structure to the River Lea and re-profile the concrete channel.

Every metre of the CAT 24m long reach excavator was required for an application at Plymouth Yacht Haven, where a new boat storage facility is under construction. 

At Kingsnorth power station in the Medway Estuary, WM Plant Hire's 40t long reach excavator has been carrying out dredging operations from the deck of the Arnold Regis vessel for GPS Marine.

Using the Case long reach machine mounted on floating pontoons, sand and gravel is being excavated from a water filled lagoon to a depth of 8m.

In the flooding area near Tewkesbury, a series of landslips along the main Cross Country rail line above the flood plain, has prompted emergency action.

The recent flooding events near Doncaster have caused undermining of the main rail line, adjacent to the problems experienced by the Ulley Dam in retaining the high water level in the reservoir.

Following the wettest June on record according to some sources, we are now carrying out essential maintenance works in the water sector.

Marine work is progressing in front of the Grade 1 listed Royal Liver Building, using a CAT 345 long reach machine. 

An underground water storage reservoir in North London is undergoing refurbishment, but is located under the greens of a prestigious golf club.

Making the most of the fine weather, WM Plant Hire has been busy on several slope engineering projects for both re-profiling of the embankments and installation of deep vertical drains.

Working for South Staffordshire Council on an environmental improvement scheme, WM Plant Hire are clearing silt and vegetation from the Wyrley Branch Canal.

The 40 tonne 22m reach long reach excavator has been working from the deck of the famous Mersey Mammoth vessel at the busy port of Heysham.

For WM Plant, the New Year gets off to a busy start in the marine sector. Our CAT 345 machines are involved in marine work, one at the expansion of the 300 year old Port Askaig on the Isle of Islay.

Ditch reprofiling and environmental improvements to numerous pools and watercourses have been completed at the historic National Trust park in Worcestershire.

Excessive reed growth and silt build up adjacent to flood control equipment had to be removed as part of the Environment Agency’s maintenance procedures.

During a 9 day blockade the CAT 330, 345 and 375 long reach machines were used to re-profile and cut a new rock face on a deep rail cutting on the South Wales branch line.
