We are pleased to be welcoming one of our new Komatsu PC700LC-11 Excavators to the fleet. This machine starts work on Phase 2 of the construction of the new sea wall in Dawlish, Devon today.
The project will provide protection to the town and the railway from the rising sea levels and the extreme weather conditions for the next 100 years or more. The upgrade involves collaborative working between marine, coastal and railways experts. Projects like this will increase the resilience of the railways, which in turn will improve life for local people and tourists in Dawlish.
The Komatsu PC700LC-11 offers maximum efficiency with powerful a digging and lifting force, meaning it is ideal for work on the beach, as well as in the compound. This machine is powered by Stage V technology, complying with the latest emission regulations and leading to a lower environmental impact.
Lynch have been working on the new sea wall for the past year, and the acquisition of this new machine will help the customer continue to meet the goals of this unique project. This supports the whole of the South West peninsula, as the railway line connects 50 towns and cities to the rest of the UK. We are proud to be involved with this important project, and we look forward to the completion of Dawlish’s new sea wall.
