THE NEED

The mine needed to install a concrete batch plant inside a tunnel in a very remote location, in extremely humid conditions. The plant had to be installed in a very narrow footprint.

BMH SOLUTION

BMH shipped the plant in 20 ft. containers and was in charge of the start-up and the commissioning of the plant. The plant was located in a 2 km long tunnel (1.2 mile) tunnel.
