In 2006 the British Olympic committee was successful with its bid to host the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The main complex will be sited in Stratford, East London in an area which has largely been occupied by industrial premises.
The Olympic village complex will expand for a total of approximately 7sq kilometres beyond this position.
The machine is currently excavating land that will take electricity cables underground rather than remain fixed to pylons currently on the site. Due to the high profile nature of this project where tight schedules need to be met, Land & Water provided a machine filled with PANOLIN biodegradable fluid to ensure the work is completed reliably and on time. Innovation is embodied within the Land & Water philosophy and having made the decision to switch to bio fluids some years ago, they now have the peace of mind gained from previous projects that the use of PANOLIN biodegradable lubricants contribute towards the overall productivity of their machines. By choosing PANOLIN, Land & Water benefit from a reduction of waste and energy consumption, which combined contribute towards improved efficiency and a reduction in the «Carbon Footprint» of the company.
