In December 2018, Indeco dealers in Austria, Doralco GesmbH, based in Oeynhausen just outside Vienna, fulfilled an order for an Indeco ISS 20/30 shear.
The shear is currently being used on various jobsites belonging to ÖMV, a firm which over the last 50 years has managed a number of different gas pipelines throughout Austria.
Mounted on a Kobelco excavator with a working weight of approximately 31 tons, the ISS 20/30 shear, with a working weight of about 3600 kg, is being used for demolitions by the main contractor Habau, part of an Austrian group that has been operating for over 100 years in sectors such as building, civil engineering, construction of gas pipelines, prefabricated buildings and tunnelling. Before this job, the shear had already made a name for itself in the company, without showing any signs of wear, when it had been used to demolish approximately 22 kilometres of pipeline with an external diameter of 300 mm and a thickness of 12 mm. Due in great part to the efforts of Doralco, Indeco products have been highly successful on the Austrian market, with a number of hydraulic hammers and pulverizers being sold last year.
