NBM&CW - - EQUIPMENT & MACHINERY -

EUROVIA - Kameňolomy, s.r.o, part of the VINCI Group, will part­ner with CDE to host an Open Day at their Martin quarry in Slo­vakia on 6-7 June 2017. The com­pany will show­case its new CDE 60 tonne/hour wet pro­cess­ing plant, which will sup­ply ma­te­ri­als for a ma­jor mo­tor­way con­struc­tion project over the next three years.

EUROVIA, part of the VINCI Group, is a world leader in trans­port in­fras­truc­ture con­struc­tion and ur­ban de­vel­op­ment. Ac­tive in 15 coun­tries across the world with close to 1,300 in­dus­trial and com­mer­cial en­ti­ties, it em­ploys over 38,000 peo­ple with a to­tal rev­enue of €8,188 mil­lion in 2014.

The com­pany has a large pres­ence in Slo­vakia where it pro­duces ag­gre­gates in 10 rock quar­ries and has one sand and gravel plant. The CDE wet pro­cess­ing plant was in­stalled in 2016 in the Dubná Skala Quarry, near the city of Martin in northern Slo­vakia. The main prod­uct from the quarry is a 0-4mm crushed gran­ite.

EUROVIA sup­plies con­crete for ur­ban de­vel­op­ment and road projects, in­clud­ing a ma­jor road con­struc­tion project to de­velop a 11km stretch of the D1 high­way be­tween the cities of Martin and Zilina, which is cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion with work con­tin­u­ing un­til Oc­to­ber 2018. This project has a bud­get of €427.2 mil­lion and com­prises 11 bridges and two tun­nels, so the re­quire­ments for ag­gre­gates are on­go­ing and sig­nif­i­cant.

The Project

The Dubná Skala Quarry is a 100 year-old gran­ite quarry sit­u­ated in ru­ral Slo­vakia. Due to the re­mote­ness of its lo­ca­tion and the lack of ac­cess to wa­ter sup­ply, the cus­tomer needed their new wet pro­cess­ing plant to have a low en­ergy re­quire­ment and to be able to re­cir­cu­late the wa­ter through the sys­tem.

EUROVIA’s main ob­jec­tive was to turn an un­saleable 0-4 crushed gran­ite sand frac­tion due to high lev­els of con­tam­i­na­tion (con­tam­i­na­tion
