HM Plant celebrates new partnership

June 27, 2013

    The ZX48U-5 mini, and ZX135US-5 and ZX225USRLC-5 medium excavators will be used to train local people in the skills needed to work on construction sites on Anglesey (and beyond) at the recently completed and soon-to-be-opened facility.

    Regeneration of the economy

    It has been partly funded by the Welsh Government (devolved Government for Wales) and is a tangible result of efforts to create partnership agreements that help to kick-start the regeneration of the local and regional economy.

    The partnership reflects commitment shown by HM Plant and HCME to work with local organisations and ensure that an effective supply chain is in place for major infrastructure projects proposed for Anglesey over the coming years. These include the building of a new nuclear power station at Wylfa by Horizon Nuclear Power, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd.

    HM Plant’s Vice President, Motsomu Sue, says, “These new Hitachi Zaxis-5 machines are fully equipped with the latest advanced technology in both hydraulic and electronic systems, as well as featuring engines with the latest environmental emission requirements.”

    “Therefore, they fit perfectly into Coleg Menai’s commitment to providing the training in technology required for industry now, and in the years to come. Hitachi, Ltd.’s motto is ‘Inspire the Next’, and through this partnership, we aim to help inspire the next generation by using the latest innovations from our market-leading range of construction machinery.”

    Coleg Menai Principal, Dafydd Evans, says, “We are really grateful to HM Plant and HCME for supplying these superb excavators and their readiness to develop a partnership with the college. Their support will enable us to provide a training facility equipped to the standard only available at world-class civil engineering training centres, and puts Coleg Menai at the heart of providing skills and training that are second to none.”
