Following the major rainfall in Italy which led to considerable flooding, suction excavators were deployed as disaster aids. Rubble, gravel and sludge were effectively removed from roads, cellars and difficult-to-access areas.
In 2008, landslips and rockfalls were initiated in Switzerland by continuous torrential rain. This resulted in an avalanche where large areas were buried. Suction excavator operators from all over Europe came to assist in the clearance work. Cleaning of the affected areas was completed in the shortest possible time.
RSP suction excavators are equally suitable for cleaning the scene of an accident and for disposing of the transported product. Even a variety of hazardous substances can be removed from the scene of the accident safely and quickly. This reduces the clearing time enormously and enables traffic to continue within a very short time.
