An hydraulic excavator caught on fire

THE CONTEXT

The French importer of one of the industry leaders in the field of designing, manufacturing, and marketing compact and heavy construction machinery called on GM Consultant to examine a hydraulic excavator that caught on fire while in operation on a construction site less than a year after it was first put into use.

 

 

GM CONSULTANT INTERVENTION

Our loss adjusters determined the source of the fire, the energy used in the area, and found a significant anomaly while inspecting the equipment at the scene of the incident.

After researching the case with the importer, a technical link between the outbreak of the fire and one of the services performed by the brand’s local dealership was established.
