With Australia buoyant throughout 2012 due to activity in the mining sector for the Chinese materials market, the prediction is that the need for equipment and machinery will continue well into 2013, with an ongoing demand for specific ranges of equipment. Projects in Australia fall into two broad categories: Mining and Mining Utilities; the latter providing infrastructure for the mining sector.
Demand is high for 40t and above dump trucks (both rigid and articulated), motor graders, large dozers such as CAT D8 and upwards, and wheeled loaders of which CAT 980H is popular along with Hitachi ZX 870. Utility and road projects linking mines deep in the Australian interior are demanding general crushing and screening equipment, large diggers and excavators, wheeled pavers, all sizes of rollers, and large 40t+ trucks, with preferred makes being CAT, Komatsu, Bomag and Volvo.
Resale Weekly – Special Issue 2532 focuses on Africa. Despite world trends, the African continent remained buoyant throughout 2012 and this looks set to continue well into 2013. Fuelled by massive infrastructure projects across many regions, Africa is pushing ahead with a broad raft of projects that include road, rail, utilities, housing, forestry and mining.
South Africa plans to spend US$ 465 billion on strategic infrastructure projects that include ports, energy, communications and transport links. Over the next three years, the state is pledging to spend approximately US$ 98 billion on the start of these works as the next stage in the development of the country.
Ghana and Nigeria both have contractors working in the region with requirements for all makes of excavators and dozers from 20t upwards, ‘rippers’ such as CAT D6ts being a preferred choice. The trend is more for utilitarian machines that have dual uses where follow on contracts would have different requirements. Read More…
