Dawnus Construction Limited, the UK-based international civil engineering and building company, has bought six new Doosan 25 to 35 tonne crawler excavators together worth well over £700,000 for projects spread across England and Wales. Purchased from Bridgwater-based Kellands (Plant Sales) Ltd, the Authorised Dealer for the Doosan and Bobcat ranges for South West England, the new excavator order includes the very latest DX340LC-5 and DX300LC-5 Stage IV compliant models from Doosan.
Martin Egan, Plant Hire Manager at Dawnus, said: “This new order continues our long standing association with Kellands and Doosan Construction Equipment and includes a 35 tonne machine, the DX340LC-5, three DX300LC-5 30 tonne excavators and two Doosan DX255LC-3 25 tonne machines. These excavators find themselves on major projects scattered all over the UK including a civil/marine project in Plymouth, an underpinning project on an old Victorian aqueduct in Birmingham and a hydroelectric project on the River Taff, just north of Cardiff in Wales.”
Graham Bagwell, Managing Director of Kellands (Plant Sales) Ltd, said: “We are delighted to have secured this prestigious order from Dawnus for Doosan excavators working on the company’s impressive portfolio of UK contracts. Dawnus has been very satisfied with the performance of Doosan machines including those they have previously bought for overseas jobs in mining and iron ore extraction.”
