Well done to Jamie Chapman for winning last month’s Photo of the Month competition with this great shot of the RN3 in action.
The RN3 is the largest and most powerful of our remote units which is coupled with one of our Suction Excavators by a 250mm diameter extension hoses allowing this fully remote controlled unit to excavate from up to 120m away from the road vehicle (horizontally and depending upon material). Click here to find out more about the RN3.
This image was taken whilst in action at a high profile infrastructure site in the UK where the RN3 is being fully utilised with its remote capability and long reach.
We've had another great year here at Force One Ltd. We have continuously developed and expended and look forward to carrying this through 2018. From all of here at Force One Ltd - we wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
The Force One Rail operatives Jake and Harry have been getting some practice in with our RRV by volunteering at a Heritage Rail site. Here, they tidied the track by using the RRV to lift old sleepers and rail from around the track and placed them on the back of a trailer which they were following.
The guys at the Heritage Rail site were impressed with our new piece of equipment saying it has helped them out massively and gives them an opportunity to get jobs done they normally are unable to do.
Jake and Harry will be helping out with jobs all week while perfecting their operative skills making them, and the RRV, ready and available for work.
Well done to Gary Burke on winning the October Photo of the Month award with this picture of one of our 26t floppy arm suction excavators on a job in Haddenham, Cambridgeshire.
The job was to uncover the water mains leading from the water tower which, along with a second identical tower, holds more than 5 million litres of water and serves nearly 10,000 homes and businesses in and around Ely. This was to cut into and cap the water mains so essential maintenance and upgrades could be done to the tower. This includes a state-of-the-art lining which moulds the inside of the building meaning the water tank itself does not need to be replaced.
Our work took 4 shifts to complete beginning Friday 13th October. Utilising suction excavation on this site minimalised the risk of damaging the hidden water mains making the job a safer environment without effecting the cathedral city of Ely.
