Linz AG put trust in Lindner Miura 1500 with tracked chassisPublished 5/10, 2020 at 16:20
Back in 2017, Linz AG was one of the first to use the then brand new Lindner Miura 1500 at its waste treatment facility in Gaisbergerstrasse.
The Miura’s high performance and quality was impressive, soon leading to another order for a mobile primary shredder. Now, once again, Linz AG has opted for another Miura 1500 shredder – this time the recently launched DK version with crawler tracks.
Linz AG is one of the largest multi utility providers in the industrial region located along the River Danube. Its tasks include the supply of energy and drinking water, the provision of telecommunications solutions, public transport and the management of wastewater and waste. The company has been relying on Lindner’s equipment for its waste management since 2010. What began with several of Lindner’s secondary shredders from the Komet series has now grown into a complete set with mobile primary shredders from the Miura series.
A major factor has been the machines’ high flexibility: thanks to Lindner’s FX fast exchange system, the cutting unit can be changed on site in a minimum amount of time and adapted to suit different shredding needs. Ing. Franz Grottenthaler, Linz AG operations manager comments: “As a regional waste management company in an industrial region, we have to process a wide variety of materials. In addition to MSW and bulky waste, we also process a great deal of C&I waste. With the Miura shredder the great advantage is that we can react very quickly to the most varied input materials of different grades.
“As we often have to process tough materials with non shreddables, robustness is, of course, also crucial. That’s where the Miura shredder truly outshone the competition. For our latest purchase we decided on the new crawler tracked version. This gives us the additional advantage that we can manoeuvre the machine comfortably without having to have additional equipment on site.” In addition to the new version with a tracked chassis and Lindner’s typical sturdiness, the latest Miura 1500 sports powerful and economical Scania Euro-5 engines and highly efficient hydraulic components to ensure maximum productivity in mobile twin shaft shredding.
Linz AG provides energy, telecommunications, transport and municipal services, being a management holding with three operative subsidiaries. The Linz AG subsidiary, Linz Service GmbH is responsible for the waste management of the provincial capital and the 63 surrounding municipalities offering services such as water supply and wastewater management. The business area Waste includes different facilities such as a waste to energy plant, which makes it possible to independently treat the majority of the region’s waste. The portfolio includes services ranging from municipal solid waste to bulky waste collection and container service, all the way up to around 380 waste collection points for paper and board, light and metal packaging as well as glass.
