Among them is the first Stage IIIB compliant Doosan DX380LC-3 in the UK demolition industry. This 39-tonne excavator is working on a land remediation contract on the site of the former Innovia Films cellophane factory in Bridgwater, Somerset.

Three of Wring’s six new Doosan DX225LC excavators are also on the same job.

The Wring project is part of site preparations for the construction of a temporary campus facility for about 1,000 workers to be involved in the planned construction by EDF Energy of two new nuclear reactors at Hinkley Point C.

The Bridgwater site was formerly the home of the British Cellophane factory, acquired by Innovia Films in 1996. The large industrial buildings on the site lay derelict for a number of years following closure of the factory in 2005.

Wring completed the demolition of the factory buildings in 2010 and it is now removing the substructures and foundations for the demolished buildings as part of a land remediation contract.  By the end of the project, Wring will have sorted, recycled and removed over 250,000 tonne of material from the site.

Pictured below are all seven of the new Doosans lined up for parade.
