Suction Excavation, has, over the past 30 years become widely accepted as one of the safest methods of exposing existing buried pipes, ducts and cables on construction, civils’ and utility sites across Europe, the UK and Ireland.
MTS Suction Systems UK Ltd, a subsidiary of MTS Mobile Tiefbau Saugsysteme GmbH has, since its establishment in 2014 become what is claimed to be the UK’s No1 provider of the DINO range of 26 and 32 t chassis-mounted, twin fan suction excavators. Providing equipment to the leading companies operating the technology, MTS also provides a wide range of equipment on multiple chassis types ranging from 16 t to 32 t in Twin, Triple and Quad fan variants with a full range of hydraulic ‘POWER’ hose booms to meet clients’ ever-growing requirements.
As well as the standard DINO range, MTS also leads the way in developing market leading city-focused rigs featuring small footprints, maneuverability and high performance to enable the techniques use to be increased in urban areas and confined sites. This range includes the recently launched DINOCITY with rear tip and centrally-mounted EVO Power hose boom, and for those requiring more capacity, the DINO ECONIC. Both units are ideal for city centre works with the ECONIC variant ticking all the boxes for latest driver visibility requirements.
MTS continues with a policy of product development and welcome opportunities to work directly with clients to design and develop DINO equipment for their specific requirements. Examples of this can be seen in the MTS DINO Core & Vac systems with NGN and SGN for work in the gas industry, as well as the DINO4.5 Tracked Units with Pier UK for cross country works. For the rail industry, MTS has designed and built units in RRV (road rail vehicle) based on 6×4 road chassis for European and UK operations, as well as tracked units with driven rail wheels for use on European rail networks. Most recently, for the rail industry, MTS worked with Force One in the UK to produce a Quad fan power head mounted in a purpose made container for use with the company’s own design ballast removal system.
