TRAC upgrades fleet to meet market growth

A recent upswing in geotechnical work has been cited as the reason for TRAC Engineering upgrading its ground engineering fleet.

Daniel Lowe, TRAC Engineering project manager, said: “The geotechnical market has picked up rapidly and while this is great for business, we needed to update our fleet so we could cope with increased demand.”

Primarily chosen for soil nailing and rock bolting applications, TRAC has invested in one fully remote CID 120 system, two semi-hydraulic CID 80s and three DACHS pneumatic sliding rigs from Marini.

The equipment was purchased from ground engineering and rock drilling specialist distributor and rental company, Skelair International.

Skelair managing director John Mayo added: “We’ve noticed a distinct shift from rentals to purchase over the last six months, with many companies using the upturn in the market as an opportunity to completely review their machine strategy.”
