Top green credentials for Select’s new heavy plant at Chester Zoo

Select’s latest item of heavy plant has gone straight to work for the integrated Laing O’Rourke team at Chester Zoo.

The Komatsu D65PX-16 is the first in the Select dozer fleet to be equipped with a Tier 3B engine, exceeding the latest particulate emissions standards while still delivering a strong 164kW/219HP through its automatic transmission.

The advanced unit offers high productivity and low fuel consumption, matched with advanced controls and superior visibility for the operator.

Dominic Daly, Select’s heavy plant leader, said “The Komatsu is the latest of several new units to be joining the Select heavy plant fleet this year. Our ongoing investment and renewal programme has given us one of the youngest fleets in the industry, with all the benefits for our customers of reliability and support wherever its needed.

Select, one of the UK’s leading providers of plant and facilities to the construction industry. will be working alongside Laing O’Rourke Construction, Expanded, Crown House technologies and Explore Manufacturing to deliver the £30m Islands project at Chester Zoo for the North of England Zoological Society, currently the UK’s largest zoo development.
