Neil Foundations, the specialist piling contractor, has chosen Hatz GB, the UK division of the German diesel engine manufacturer, as its supplier for a new project development. The contractor’s workshop manager, Barry Bond has built and designed a prototype mini piling rig, which has been given the model number B 15000.
“We identified a requirement for a mini piling rig to put piles into commercial warehouses and domestic dwellings, so I set about developing a bespoke product entirely for our own use. The machine is currently undergoing extensive field testing prior to being made ready for production,” explained Barry Bond.
The reason why the company chose the Hatz 4H50TIC engine is because it meets all the latest emissions regulations. With a variety of other Hatz engines in its fleet, Neil Foundations knew they were trustworthy and reliable. The Hatz 4H50TIC is a 4-cylinder diesel engine fully compliant with the stringent emissions regulations both in the UK and in the USA and it comes with a unique feature that allows compliance to be achieved without the use of a diesel particulate filter.
With over 35 years of experience, Neil Foundations are experts in piling services and foundation engineering. They provide a complete service, including site investigation, design, implementation, and testing. It operates throughout Berkshire, Farnborough, Hampshire, and Surrey.
The Hatz diesel engines have existed for more than a hundred years and from their manufacturing base in Ruhstorf, Germany, they produce a range of modern diesel engines from 3 to 55 kW. Hatz GB Limited is a subsidiary with its facilities located in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
