Reflecting the improving business climate generally, Wexford-based marine engineering contractors, Marine Specialists Limited of Foulksmills and Ballymitty, has invested in additional plant with their purchase of a Komatsu PC360LR-10 hydraulic excavator.
Supplied by Komatsu distributor McHale Plant Sales of Birdhill, the new long reach crawler excavator, fitted with a 3D GPS system will be replacing the existing Komatsu PC210-8. The PC 360LR-10 will be employed on the expanding range of marine construction, pipe laying and dredging contracts currently being serviced by the company across the country.
According to the Company’s managing director John McKeown, a Komatsu customer for seven years, the decision to purchase another Komatsu unit was influenced by the ‘reliability and unrivalled performance’ of the current machine, coupled with the ‘excellent after sales service provided by McHale Plant Sales’.
Founded in 2006 and employing an experienced team of experts, Marine Specialist Limited is one of Ireland’s leading commercial diving and marine contractors specialising in a broad range of surface and underwater operations including salvage, underwater construction, dredging, pipe laying, inspection and demolition.
