Doosan’s German demolition job

FW Bau, the construction company based in Salzhemmendorf, Germany, has used a Doosan DX255LC excavator to dismantle a concrete tank at a sewage treatment plant at Malente in Schleswig-Holstein.

Originally, it was planned it would take three weeks to demolish a tank like this with a height of 14m and a diameter of 14m, including the processing of the roughly 200m³ of demolished concrete and around 800m³ of stone that was produced by the work. However, Felix Wessel’s company was able to complete the project in just two weeks. One of the reasons was the trouble-free operation of the construction machinery used. "I can fully rely on the Doosan machines, which is an important factor for me as a medium-sized contractor," Felix explained. While the 25-tonne DX255LC excavator was demolishing and processing material with the help of a jaw crusher, a Doosan 14-tonne DX140LCR-5 excavator was used to load it into FW Bau’s own trucks.

After the DX255LC, the company's first Doosan excavator, went into operation in April 2018, FW Bau purchased four more Doosan excavators from Authorised Doosan Dealer, Atlas Hannover Baumaschinen GmbH & Co. In addition to the DX255LC, the fleet at FW Bau includes DX10z, DX63-3, the DX140LCR-5 and, most recently, a DX190W-5 wheeled excavator. The next purchase, this time a Doosan wheel loader, is in the pipeline.
