New Dredging Equipment for General Santos City

The General Santos City Government has acquired additional heavy equipment as part of the continuing upgrading of its motor pool, according to the Philippines News Agency.

Engineer Francisco Provido, City Engineer’s Office (CEO) chief, said that the new heavy equipment comprised 19 brand new units that will be used for dredging of waterways, road repair and maintenance, and waste disposal.

The newly-acquired heavy equipment are composed of eight dump trucks, two backhoe excavators, two vibratory compactors, etc. He added that these were turned over to the local government, through the CEO, late last week by supplier JVF Merchandising Inc.

“This is a major upgrade for our motor pool and will greatly improve our services, especially in the barangays,” he said.

Engineer Bert Gachera, in-charge of CEO’s motor pool unit, said that the additional fleet of heavy equipment is a big boost to their operations.

He said the new backhoes will be used in the cleaning of canals and creeks in some parts of the city that are heavily silted.
