One of the company’s core business activities is the maintenance of the existing infrastructure on the Umfolozi floodplain. This includes road, rail, and drainage and flood protection (major spillways) infrastructure.
In order to adequately perform this function, as well as to be in a position to take immediate corrective action in the event of flooding, UCOSP has acquired the following earthmoving equipment:
2 x Bell articulated dump trucks.
1 x PC220 excavator with a 19m reach
1x PC220 excavator with an 11m reach
1x R934 excavator with a standard arm
1 x Komatsu TLB
1 x 22-RB dragline excavator
1 x GD655 Komatsu grader
When not being utilised on the scheduled maintenance programme, the equipment is available for rental to shareholders and other local parties at competitive rates, however as this equipment is required on short notice in the event of a flood, it is never sent out of the immediate vicinity.
Please contact the UCOSP office for availability of equipment and current rates.
