Energopol purchase Doosan excavators
Polish civil engineering company Energopol have purchased four new Doosan DX530ELR-3 extra-long reach crawler exavators from Grausch i Grausch Maszyny Budowlane Sp. z o.o., the authorised doosan dealer for Poland, based in Złotkowo near Poznan.
Working throughout Poland, Energopol are engaged in a diverse range of civil engineering projects, from constructing road, bridge and wastewater systems to building large structures and hydro-engineering schemes.
Energopol have chosen the new Doosan excavators for use on the new Piast canal waterfront development project. The conditions on the contract are challenging as the work will have to be performed from pontoons placed on the water. The new excavators meet a need for reliable and robust equipment and Energopol believe the new DX530ELR-3 crawler excavators are the best equipped machines on the market for the task. They are also Stage IIIB compliant machines, meeting the stringent environmental guidelines for work on the project.
‘The purchase decision was based on the excellent reputation of Doosan as a heavy construction equipment manufacturer and the ability of the machines to meet the parameters of the job. The latter were made even more challenging due to the specific nature of the work,’ said Krzysztof Dudziewicz from Energopol.
‘Another important factor was our long-standing relationship with the Doosan dealer, Grausch i Grausch. We have great confidence in their role as a distributor and the professionalism they show which is all important when key decisions such as this are to be made.’
The DX530ELR-3 model is the extra-long reach (ELR) version of the new Stage IIIB-compliant Doosan DX530LC-3 crawler excavator, the successor to the successful DX520LC model. The four new 53.8-tonne DX530ELR-3 excavators are equipped with 19m long arms. Each machine will be placed on a pontoon weighing between 200-500 tonnes.
