The first of these excavators, a Hitachi EX5600, was added to BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance’s (BMA) Peak Downs site where the National Group handed over five Liebherr Ultra-Class T 282C trucks in September 2018.

The second Excavator, a Liebherr R 996B, was delivered to its sister mine Poitrel, part of BHP’s other Queensland joint venture, BHP Mitsui Coal (BMC).

The excavator is the first piece of equipment that National Group has at the coal mine.

National Group founder and managing director Mark Ackroyd, was there in person to hand over the keys at both locations.

"We have been working with BHP for some time now, especially at Peak Downs, so to be adding more equipment there is a testament to the machines we currently have operating for them and speaks volumes of our team on-site who do a great job with maintenance when needed," he says.

"Poitrel on the other hand, we are very excited to be adding our first piece of equipment there and for it to be the ever reliable Liebherr 996 digger.

"We’re confident they are going to love this machine and hope it is just the beginning of things to come.

"We know how difficult it can be to get the bigger gear to Australia first of all, let alone having to worry about everything else once it arrives here.

National Group has the capability to handle all transport, assembly and delivery.
