5-2-2014 - STORMS AND FLOODS PLACE UNEXPECTED DEMAND ON PLANT SECTOR – SAYS MCHALE PLANT SALES

 The impact that recent winds and severe flooding have had in many parts of Ireland, not least amongst coastal communities whose sea defenses have been severely damaged by high winds and heavy seas, will place an unexpected demand on plant and equipment contractors and providers, according to Komatsu distributor in Ireland, McHale Plant Sales.

 
In the months and years ahead, flood protection will become a major area of activity, as local authorities and communities strive to protect themselves against an expected reoccurrence of scenes that have become all too familiar in recent times, the company believes.

One particular aspect requiring the use of specialised equipment will result from the public call for deeper dredging of rivers. In such applications, the requirement will be for excavators with long reach booms and water discharge buckets.
 
For the information of the various state agencies and local authorities involved, and in order to facilitate the fastest possible response, McHale Plant Sales is compiling a register of contractors resourced with the machinery required to carry out such work.
