Doosan Demolition Excavator Takes Down Historic Factory

A Doosan DX530DM top-of-the-range demolition excavator has been used in a top down demolition of part of an historic manufacturing plant in Lissone in Monza in Italy. The site is owned by Brugola OEB Industriale S.p.a., the world leader in the production of fasteners and other parts for the automotive sector.

Contract Awarded to Seli Manutenzioni Generali

The contract for the demolition was awarded to Seli Manutenzioni Generali Srl of Monza, a company with over 50 years of experience in the construction sector, which has seen significant growth in its recently formed Business Unit dedicated to demolition and decommissioning.

The DX530DM equipped with a 29m boom, long arm and demolition grapple, carried out the entire demolition from above two industrial buildings consisting of a tower section, 20 m high, and two single-storey buildings, that made up the old OEB factory.

The DX530DM excavator, customized in the white and yellow colours that distinguish the Seli Manutenzioni Generali fleet, made it possible to perform a demolition that overcame the problems involved, ensuring surgical precision in completing the work in just eight working days.

The demolition work carried out with the DX530DM demolition excavator was continuously supported by a Doosan DX235LCR-7 excavator which, in alternating phases, dealt with the crushing and removal of steel from the demolition waste, as well as the subsequent loading of materials onto trucks destined for recycling plants.

The use of the most modern and innovative equipment has guaranteed an extremely reduced environmental impact, both in terms of noise and dust emissions, allowing to minimize the disturbance caused to the residents in the area and the district’s commercial activities and services, limiting vibrations and noise propagation, for the entire duration of the demolition phases.

Seli Manutenzioni Generali has always purchased Doosan machines supplied by DMO, the exclusive Doosan importer for Emilia Romagna, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Lombardy in the provinces of Milan, Cremona, Mantua, Lodi, Pavia, Varese, Monza and Brianza.
