Environment Canterbury is looking to find a practical “fit for purpose” unit to replace its current Komatsu D65 PX-15 Bulldozer. This unit operates in our South Canterbury region with approx. 1200 operational hours annually.
Environment Canterbury has a long-term focus for its flood protection work and would expect any new purchase should not only meet its operational requirements but perform to its fullest capabilities for the next 10-12 years.
We would look at achieving this by working closely with the awardee to keep a new unit serviced and maintained regularly to achieve maximum performance with limited downtime.
Applicates should consider the long-term servicing support as part of their proposal, along with details of warranty and replacement parts on high wear areas of the unit.
Over the current unit’s lifespan, Environment Canterbury has modified the existing bulldozer to meet its operational requirements. Our goal is to have these implemented ex-factory or modified pre delivery to eliminate unnecessary wear & tear and improve the unit’s lifespan.
Environment Canterbury organisational goal is to explore technology to reduce carbon emissions and impact on the environment. Due to this our preference will be for any new heavy plant item to include Tier 4 rated engine technology, but we will consider any option that will reduce our carbon footprint.
