Atlas Copco breakers for Lynch
First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
As part of a £12 million (€14 million) investment in new equipment, 22 Atlas Copco hydraulic breaker and compactor attachments have been bought by Lynch Plant Hire and Haulage.
Many of the attachments from the current batch, which includes five MB 1200E medium breakers; six MB 750E medium breakers; ten SB 302 small breakers and one HC 350 compactor, are already in use on the Crossrail project, which will see 42km of new rail tunnels constructed under London.
Much of the equipment from a future order is to be used in the construction of the new nuclear power station at Hinckley Point near the city of Bristol, south-west England.
Lynch’s breakers incorporate Atlas Copco auto control valve, energy recovery and dampening systems which prevent damaging vibrations that could be detrimental to both the carrier and the operator.
