New Material Handlers Sorting and Loading
Germany – Two new SENNEBOGEN 818 M material handlers are sorting 150,000 t of domestic and commercial waste per year for Entsorgungswirtschaft Soest GmbH (ESG), the waste management authority for the district of Soest in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany.
According to the research, each resident in Germany produces around a half-ton of domestic waste per year. This means that German households are producing just under one ton of waste every second. Responsibility for the disposal and recycling of waste is shared between cities, communities and private companies. To handle the local volume for 300,000 residents in the region, ESG has been working closely with two private companies, Remondis and Veolia Umweltservice, since 1993.
Robust SENNEBOGEN material handler with 30 ft. (9 m) boom
The local SENNEBOGEN sales and service dealer delivered two new machines at the beginning of 2015 to sort and load the waste. Their latest generation of modern material handlers is powered by a 103 HP (97 kW) diesel engine, a 30 ft. (9 m) reach, and numerous safety features. The cab, which can be elevated up to 18 ft. (2.7 m), gives operators an excellent view of the work area. For added health and safety, the machine is also fitted with cameras and work lighting, protective ventilation and access to a grapple scale as it works at a number of tasks including sorting and loading shipping containers.
According to Operations Manager Dirk Conrady, the machine’s purpose-built design, its wheeled undercarriage, its ease of maintenance and simple handling were all critical factors in choosing the SENNEBOGEN machine.
