New excavator for South Walker Creek

Date: 12-May-2016

This machine is a Hitachi EX5600-6 hydraulic excavator in a back-hoe configuration capable of lifting around 34 cubic meters of material in a single pass.

This new addition to the HSE fleet was mobilised to South Walker Creek at the end of October 2015 and commissioned for use at the beginning of December 2015. It was purchased after a request for a machine of this size to support HSE's existing and extensive fleet of equipment in operation at this site. It has performed well since commissioning and is currently removing waste and coal from various pits around the South Walker Creek complex.
This purchase demonstrates our strategic direction and commitment to maintaining our current contracts, strengthening existing customer relationships and increasing production at site.
