Lencrow Materials Handling has taken delivery of two new FDC450S4 Container Handling Forklifts for the Veolia waste management site at Clyde in western Sydney.
The units will be used to load 400,000 tonnes of waste a year, to be transported to Woodlawn bio-reactor site.
The waste is placed in landfill cover and the gas is collected and used to produce electricity.
Lencrow has a long relationship with the Terex (formally known as Fantuzzi).
In 1994 Lencrow bought the first Fantuzzi machine in Australia, which is still in operation at a Sydney transport yard.
Terex Port Equipment General Manager Michael Kidd is delighted to have the Lencrow
Group as one of its sales and service dealers for the range of port products.
“We have full confidence in Lencrow’s ability to provide both product advice to customers as well as after sales support, Kidd said. “The team at Lencrow has over 30 years experience in materials handling and much of that has been involved with reach stacker and container handling forklifts.”
The units provided to Veolia are to suit their purpose built 40’ containers and require
a capacity 38,000kgs under the twist locks. The units will be used in both compaction and loading and unloading of railway cars.
Ross Grassick Managing Director of Lencrow says: “Terex was our first choice in
a machine for this application. We have always been impressed with the attention to detail in the Terex machines and have found them to be very economic in their running costs.”
