The completed CDE project at Cemex Datchet will provide approximately 400,000tonnes of materials each year
Following the recent announcement of the opening of Datchet Quarry in county Berkshire, England, CDE is to partner with Cemex to deliver a further three new sand and aggregates washing projects across the Midlands and south of England.
Over the four projects Cemex is making a substantial investment to further strengthen its UK aggregates operations. To date two projects are complete with another two to commission before the end of 2016.
Cemex, which produces ready mixed concrete, crushed rock, sand and gravel, has an extensive portfolio including 230 concrete mixing plants and 63 quarries serving the UK market.
“We are pleased to be working once again with Cemex on its progressive aggregates projects in the UK,” says Matthew Bunting, director of business development UK & Ireland.
“The CDE team has been designing, manufacturing and installing these projects in the past few months and we are delighted to have completed commissioning of the first two projects. We look forward to announcing a number of open days in conjunction with Cemex to celebrate the completion of these projects later this year.”
The new quarry at Datchet will be a strategically important site providing approximately 400,000tonnes of materials each year, while the replacement plants at the three existing sites will ensure increased capacity and maximum material recovery.
Rob Doody, Operations Director Aggregates Cemex UK, says: “Our investment in new CDE plants allows us to increase capacity in a number of growth markets around the country as well as investing in new mineral areas. They represent an investment in the future of our aggregate business and highlight the long term importance of this business within the UK.”
