Nicol of Skene, one of the leading civil engineering contractors in the Nort East of Scotland have recently added two MTS DINO suction excavation units to their fleet working out of Aberdeen. The DINO8 and 12 systems, supplied by MTS Suction System UK Ltd, are designed and manufactured by MTS GmbH based in Germersheim.
Nicol Of Skene, established in 1985, initially ventured into Suction Excavation in 2017 with the introduction of a class leading DINOCITY that enabled them to introduce their clients to the safe excavation methods that the systems offer. Benefits the use of the equipment bring include, reductions in buried plant damages and the associated costs of repairs, compensation and inconvenience to end users, and more importantly the risk of injury to operatives on site.
Following growth in demand for the equipment, especially for larger works and excavations, Nicol of Skene identified the need for larger capacity and more powerful equipment and committed to the purchase of two twin 900mm fan DINO units. The first a DINO8 on a 6×2 rear steer chassis with 8m3 capacity was chosen for it’s excellent manoeuvrability in rural and urban areas, and the second a DINO12 on a 32tonne 8×4 Tridem chassis with 12m3 spoil capacity.
The two additional units allow Nicol of Skene to cover the full comprehensive range of their client requirements which not only includes safe excavation works but also more specialist applications including removals of various materials at depth and distance.
As well as using twin 900mm fans, both units also benefit from MTS patented Cyclonic Air Flow system providing UK market leading, maintainable suction performance and filter cleaning.
