Wirtgen W2200

Price was critical for the customer and so Omnia advised them to opt for a converted cold milling machine rather than a Surface Miner – similar performance but substantially better value. Omnia was able to procure a Wirtgen W2200 which had been suitably modified for this purpose. However, the unit was fitted with a ‘trenching drum’ – 0.6m in width and designed for trench digging rather than surface mining. Omnia subsequently procured a brand new 2.2m wide surface mining drum at a fraction of the cost that the client had paid historically. Omnia Logistics then coordinated the RORO shipment of the W2200, transshipping through Baltimore to a Caribbean Island, along with the drum which went palletised within a shipping container.
