Are friends electric?

The Sirius Group has added eight new machines to its Caterpillar equipment fleet. The Cat machine haul includes a D6 XE, a new electric drive dozer that is said to operate at a 35 per cent better energy efficiency rating.

“When purchasing a Cat machine, you can be sure that you’re making a sound investment with quality and durability guaranteed. Precision and continuity throughout operations is extremely important to our customers, and the fact that this range is built to have the smallest impact on the environment as possible is another bonus,” says plant director Stuart Kirk. “After all, employing more sustainable technology is the future and we want to be a part of that,” Kirk continued.

Recent additions to The Sirius Group’s fleet include a Cat Next Gen D5 Dozer, specially designed to improve productivity and reduce undercarriage wear for low operating costs. The 323 and 330 excavators, although not electric, are equipped to run on B20 biodiesel — a more environmentally-friendly alternative for fuel-saving flexibility. The entire Sirius fleet meets the EU Stage IV emission standards and includes a new 563 roller and a 308 mini-excavator.

They have evolved and diversified over the years responding to clients’ needs and now provide a wide range of services to the built environment.
