Veolia have recently taken delivery of a fleet of Liebherr wheel loaders and material handlers for a number of their existing and new Veolia waste sites in the Sydney Metro area. The decision to purchase Liebherr Mobile equipment followed successful trials assessing the machines suitability in the various Veolia waste applications, Veolia were particularly impressed with the Liebherr Hydrostatic drivetrain, providing efficient operation and exceptionally good fuel savings.

The recent opening of the new Banksmeadow Waste Rail Transfer facility saw 2 Liebherr L 556 Tier IIIB wheel loaders delivered into service there for the loading of domestic waste, compacted into 40 foot container for rail transport to their Woodlawn landfill. The layout and process is almost identical to the Clyde site which has also recently received 2 Liebherr L 556 XPower® loaders for the operation there.

Their Greenacre transfer facility has received our Liebherr L 566 wheel loader whilst Port Botany transfer facility has received a Liebherr L 556 loader and LH 22 M Material Handler, with more units, including a Liebherr PR 756 waste spec dozer and a tracked LH 30 C material handler which will be delivered to facilities in the new year, further adding to Veolia’s now impressive fleet which will total 11 Liebherr units all together across the east coast.
