Multidrive’s MLE systems are currently delivering aggregate to EDF Energy’s Hinkley Point, the biggest construction site in Europe. www.hinkleysupplychain.co.uk/powering-up-hinkley-point-c-with-nuclear-concrete.
The MLE systems are being used to supply the aggregate to Hanson who produce the concreate used in the construction. The aggregate must be of the very highest quality, an essential requirement for ‘nuclear concrete’.
The horizontal discharging Multidrive MLE offers a safe means of discharge and is able to operate on unstable ground.
A further advantage of the Multidrive MLE is the speed of ejection, this dramatically reduces time spent at the discharge point. Operators advise that this enables them to achieve a 20% increase in productivity.
