Wacker Neuson's DT10e is being trialled at the Ospedale San Gerardo Clinic in Monza

Contractor Easy Service is relying on the zero emission solutions of equipment supplier Wacker Neuson for extensive remediation work inside the Ospedale San Gerardo Clinic in Italy.

Headquartered in Monza, Easy Service is an ISO 9001 certified company specialising in building remediation and renovation work in particularly demanding environments.

For extensive renovation inside the San Gerardo hospital, it acquired two 803 dual power mini-excavators with an HPU8 electro-hydraulic power unit through local dealer Koma Service. A WL20e electric wheel loader and DT10e dumper are also being used.

“We already knew there would be special operating conditions in a noise and exhaust sensitive environment such as a fully running hospital," said Daniele Piras, managing director of Easy Service.

“None of the machines offered us by other manufacturers could satisfy the requirements of hospital management in terms of protection against emissions, so we were delighted when we met Koma Service at a trade show.”

During the remediation work in the hospital building, where walls and floors on each floor need renovation, the 803 dual power mini excavator fully showed its strength.

With a dual power option, the HPU8external electro-hydraulic power unit HPU8 can be connected to the excavator – in addition to the standard diesel engine.

The power unit allows the excavator to be operated electrically and completely emission-free. This option makes it the ideal tool for use in confined spaces. The dimensions of the HPU8 generator are exactly matched to the excavator.

The WL20e wheel loader with a bucket capacity of 0.2 cu m is the first battery-operated model from Wacker Neuson.

It has the same performance parameters as the conventional model, yet offers the advantage of zero emissions – an aspect becoming increasingly important, for example on construction sites in urban areas, when working indoors, on building renovations or in parking garages. One positive side effect is the significant reduction in noise emissions.

“It is time for environmentally friendly technology like this,” added Daniele.

“The availability of zero emissions has created a new era of work that fully satisfies the requirements for environmental and operator protection, without sacrificing performance.”

At present, the Wacker Neuson DT10e track dumper with electric drive is also being tested on the construction site in Monza; with a payload of 1,000 kg, it is ideally suited for indoor demolition work.

“We are already thrilled with its job performance and long battery life,” said Daniele.

“As the other products in the zero-emission series, the DT10e track dumper fits perfectly into our service spectrum with which we have qualified ourselves for work in demanding environments.”
