What hides behind a blissful scene?
Mayotte, an island of 250,000 people that is part of the Comoros archipelago of islands off southeast Africa, is beautiful. Sandy beaches, coconut trees and one of the largest lagoons in the world.
However, such perfection hides many issues that local contractors need to face, when it comes to job sites:
- importing aggregates is unthinkable as the cost is too high;
- mobility is penalized by the island's hilly shape;
- many places are still inaccessible.
The solution found was a crusher bucket BF135.8 mounted on a Doosan DX530LC.
With the excavator, crews could arrive where no other machines could and crush the basalt rock slag, which could then be used as road sub-base.
What once was a complex worksite is now very profitable as the slag that before was considered waste is now precious material to make new roads and the excess produced is sold turning into a huge revenue source.
What once represented a difficult job to do is now a flawless work environment, but the advantages don't end there:
- The environment is preserved as the material crushed is part of the island itself;
- Only one machine and one operator carrying out the job equates to money-saving and CO2 reduction;
- There is no need to move the material to process it on a plant, eliminating transport costs.
The MB Crusher jaw crusher bucket can be mounted on any brand of excavators from 5 tons to more than 70 tons, and the full range contains 12 models, some of which can be fitted even on skid steers, loaders and backhoes.
MB Crusher provides solutions for recycling the material directly on site, with just one excavator (or loader, backhoe loader, skid steer) and one operator. With just one man and one machine you can obtain:
- GSB material for road construction;
- Sub-base material for infrastructures;
- Filling material for piping;
- Soil for the maintenance of parkland, farmland and woodland.
