PLANTWORX 2013 the new biennial exhibition for the construction industry introduced this year the Innovation Awards to recognise and celebrate those innovative companies, products and services that have made a major impact in the construction equipment industry.

Marubeni-Komatsu Ltd entered the HB215LC-1 hybrid excavator in the Environmental category and were delighted to be named winners in this category:

Environmental Innovation sponsored by PERKINS

Winner: Komatsu – Hybrid Excavator
Runner up: T.C.P – Fuel cell lighting tower
Highly commended: JCB – Ecomax Stage IIIB engine

Of the all the awards the most involved debates between the panel of judges concerned entries in the Green Innovation category, as environmental considerations are a factor across the construction sector. Komatsu’s system impressed the judges, one of whom; Richard MaClean said: “It makes a great deal of sense for excavators and saves a quarter of the fuel consumption and consequently CO2 emissions.”
