The materials processing division of DUO (Europe) has recently achieved a landmark in processing on the Aberdeen by-pass in North East Scotland. Operating in six locations along the 58 kilometres of the by-pass, a fleet of Powerscreen crushing & screening equipment has processed 4 million tonnes of granite since the operation commenced in June 2015.
Luke Talbot – managing director of DUO, said: “Working as one with our client AWPR we specifically built in flexibility within the extensive programme which has allowed us to successfully manage any production changes that have occurred. We are very pleased to have achieved this landmark of processing with Powerscreen equipment.”
The Balmedie to Tipperty section is scheduled to open by Spring 2017 with the remainder for completion at the end of 2017. The new by-pass will link the A90 at Stonehaven and Charleston, south of Aberdeen and Blackdog to the north. When complete, the new road is expected to carry more than 43,000 vehicles each day through its busiest sections.
