CEMEX’s Dagenham Wharf on the River Thames, London, has taken delivery of a new Fuch’s crane, according to a company press release. The new crane will allow the site to add an additional sales line from other quarries, such as CEMEX’s Raynes Quarry in north Wales.
The £1.5 million investment comes after the wharf only re-opened in November 2015 as an aggregates processing plant. It was previously a asphalt plant and then depot for limestone being brought in from quarries in north Wales.
The plant supplies aggregates into the busy London construction market and is part of CEMEX UK’s strategy to grow the aggregates business. Unloading will be undertaken by contractors; overall operation and maintenance will be the responsibility of CEMEX’s site managers.
