NEWO-BAU in Germany has a fleet of ten Hitachi machines, including mini and medium excavators, and specialises in utilities. Managing Director Bernd Riedlmeier says, “A strong workforce combined with cutting-edge equipment are the key factors to securing a competitive place in the market. Our two ZX65USB-5s will help to increase the company’s productivity, particularly in areas requiring more precise work.
“The other Hitachi excavators in the fleet are working to capacity and need additional support. For every medium excavator, we ensure there is a compact model working alongside it, carrying out smaller jobs such as the installation of utilities on new housing sites.”
LNS Greenland (LNSG) has been commissioned to build and operate the Aappaluttoq ruby and pink sapphire mine. Its fleet of Hitachi machines includes a ZX65USB-5, which was used to prepare the groundworks for the mine’s workshop.
Project Director Peter Madsen says: “Hitachi machines are ideal for the type of work we do in such an isolated location. The maintenance work is easy to carry out and our technicians find it straightforward when it comes to replacing spare parts. The wheel loaders and excavators are the most reliable option and are particularly robust given the tough conditions. The fuel efficiency of each machine is also a positive.”
