£12M investment supports Crossrail construction

Demand for rental equipment on Crossrail has led Lynch Plant Hire and Haulage to invest £12M in new hydraulic breaking equipment from Atlas Copco over the last 12 months.

Many of the attachments from the current batch, which includes five MB 1200E medium breakers, six MB 750E medium breakers, 10 SB 302 small breakers and one HC 350 compactor, are already in use on the Crossrail project.

“Dependability and ruggedness of the products are especially important for the Crossrail project, because the large amount of dust and the high temperatures in the tunnels means that they present a particularly difficult operating environment,” said Lynch Plant operations director Merrill Lynch.

“It is because of these tough conditions that we chose to invest in Atlas Copco equipment.”
