State of art batching plant for the new Roger Bullivant factory in Swadlicote, England
Piling and foundation elements are the main products at Roger Bullivant Ltd, operating from a Head Office centrally located in South Derbyshire and from seven regional offices across the UK. Alongside central office headquarters, the company’s manufacturing facility produces over one million meters of precast concrete piles every year, together with 180,000 linear meters of precast beam.
A thorough study was required in the supplier selection stage, and the experience and custom design of MCT resulted the best combination for the demanding requirements of this project, along with their efficient and successful solutions for the bespoke plant configuration and distribution system to the production machines.
The reorganization of the factories required an early production of concrete in the new location at Walton Park and MCT proposed the installation of a temporary smart mobile plant type MCR ‘on the road’ to allow the feeding of one bay in the early stage of the final plant design, so to start moving part of the production from Drakelow efficiently and begin the production of elements while designing and manufacturing the fixed plant.
The operators at RB could in this phase get familiar with the performances of the MCT batching systems, which was very helpful also in the commissioning process of the fixed plant, to expedite the training phase of the complete permanent plant and equipment.
