Drainage Boards Reach Out For New Cats

To maintain the economically sustainable flood defence systems in the Cambridgeshire and South East Lincolnshire area, North Level District and South Holland Internal Drainage Boards have each taken delivery of a Cat 320EL Super Long Reach Excavator from Finning.

The two new units will help with the cleaning and clearing of weed and silt deposits in and around the waterways of Cambridgeshire and South East Lincolnshire.  The essential work will reduce the risk of flooding, enhancing the drainage environment in the surrounding area, protecting farmland, homes and wildlife.

North Level District and South Holland Internal Drainage Boards have each taken delivery of a Cat 320EL Super Long Reach Excavator from Finning

Two specialist drainage board engineers worked closely with Finning to identify the most effective equipment solution, which included the use of a specialist basket attachment.
This is the first time that North Level District and South Holland Internal Drainage Boards have purchased a Cat machine from Finning.

Ed Johnson, Operation Engineer at North Level District Internal Drainage Board, said: “The removal of debris is critical to this operation and by combining a specialist basket with a Cat 320EL Super Long Reach Excavator, we are able to work on the side of the waterway safely.

The prudent investment we have made in adding this to our fleet will allow us to continue performing our role more effectively, making it possible for us to retain water in the summer months for irrigation of crops, whilst enhancing the drainage capabilities in areas of flood risk throughout the year.”

Andy Price, Operations Manager at South Holland Internal Drainage Board, added: “Our drainage system consists of many watercourses, pumping stations and a number of other water level control structures.”
