Hitachi excavators are being used by civil engineering specialist Razel-Bec in a 90 km canalisation project in Senegal, West Africa. To achieve this, Razel is leading a project, in partnership with construction company Sogea Satom, to excavate new canals and rehabilitate existing ones. The project involves the movement of 5 mn cu m of earth to ensure that a main 40 km canal is capable of taking dirty water away from the delta to the Atlantic Ocean. Razel chose Hitachi Zaxis excavators that have extra-wide tracks, which prevent them from sinking into the ground. They also offer better fuel consumption.
