WORSLEY Plant recently completed one of most unusual deliveries in the firm’s history.
The supplier of materials processing equipment was selected to hire out a MB Dig A Crusher BF120.2 to Lynch Plant who used it on a job with Bam Nuttall to build a new lifeboat station in North Wales – the RNLI Porthdinllaen Lifeboat Station.
The station was getting a new Tamar class lifeboat, key to the RNLI’s rescue service on the northwest coast of Wales. Therefore a new lifeboat station needed to be constructed to house the new arrival.
The difficult coastal location, not easily accessible for large vehicles by road, meant alternative methods had to be used. It was decided that the crushing bucket and its excavator had to be put on a barge to get it onto site!
The use of the bucket allowed materials to be recycled on site. The old lifeboat station had to be demolished to make way for the new one, so the demolished materials were crushed and then reused in the construction of the new one. The remote location meant that the use of the crushing bucket was instrumental in the successful completion of the project with time, cost and environmental savings being enjoyed.
