The quarry operating giant says that health and safety is one of its core values, and as such it has introduced ‘The 5 to Stay Alive’ safety campaign, which is designed specifically for the quarrying industry and the multiple safety challenges faced on a daily basis.

The Kadra site, located in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, is the only gabbro rock quarry that Stevin Rock operates and has a production capacity of over 7 million tonnes per year.

Gabbro (also known as black granite) is produced by the site’s five crushing lines and supplies the local UAE market, in particular Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and exported to other Gulf countries.

Kadra has reserves of over 1 billion tonnes of high-quality gabbro.

Earlier this year Stevin Rock signed an agreement with UAE train operator Etihad Rail that will see an estimated 3.5 million tonnes of construction material being transported via 500 train journeys each year from Stevin's Al Ghail quarry in Ras Al Khaimah to Abu Dhabi.
