First ‘Zaxis-7’ in Greenland provides versatility in tough conditionsPublished 19/4, 2022 at 10:09
The first Zaxis-7 medium excavator in Greenland has been delivered to Permagreen Grønland A/P. The construction company, headquartered in Nuuk and with 350 employees, specialises in a variety of projects, including residential and commercial.
The ZX250LC-7 perfectly complements Permagreen Grønland’s existing fleet of 21t and 35t Hitachi Excavators. Like all Zaxis-7 models, it enables the company to improve uptime, efficiency and operator safety and is also capable of working reliably in challenging working conditions. Permagreen Grønland A/P chose the new 25t model for its versatility in different applications and exceptional durability. “Hitachi is a brand of quality,” says CEO Jeppe Bloch Steffensen. “Despite the hard work, our Zaxis excavators last for over ten years.”
Conquering all conditions
Supplied by Danish Hitachi dealer, HP Entreprenormaskiner A/S (HPE), HPE fitted additional features to the Zaxis-7 excavator in order to cope with Greenland’s harsh environment. It is equipped with reinforced arms and buckets, additional cylinder protection and reinforced cab windows (fitted at the Hitachi factory) to protect the operator from stone and rock debris.
HP Enreprenormaskiner A/S (HPE) and Permagreen have developed a close working relationship over several years. “It is a relationship based on trust,” says Jeppe Bloch Steffensen from Permagreen. “HPE is extremely solution oriented in all areas, from sales to financing, renovation and service, spare parts, everything! They provide a service that I do not think we would get elsewhere.”
