National civil engineering and construction company JN Bentley has taken delivery of its first ever Hybrid Excavator.
The 21 tonne Komatsu HB215LC-1 Excavator complements their existing fleet, which also includes over 20 other Komatsu Excavators.
“We chose the Komatsu Hybrid as not only is it something different in the marketplace, it will help JN Bentley further reduce its environmental impact,” says Dean Holmes, Procurement Manager for JN Bentley.
“Reducing fuel consumption, lower CO2 emissions and quieter operation are all benefits that we expect to gain from the Hybrid.”
Rob Wilmott, Area Sales Manager for Marubeni-Komatsu, adds, ‘Marubeni-Komatsu are delighted to continue our longstanding relationship with JN Bentley with this Hybrid Excavator order.”
“This is the eighth Hybrid Excavator that Marubeni-Komatsu have delivered since it became available in the UK and is the first that is based in the North of England’.
The Hybrid’s first job is in Bridlington helping with the construction of an emergency sewer retention tank in Carnaby East.
With its Head Office in Skipton and offices located across the UK, JN Bentley employs 700 people and has an annual turnover in the region of £120 million, generated from projects in both the building and civil engineering markets. The company celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2012.
