Cemex starts Cromwell quarrying

Cemex has opened a new sand and gravel quarry at Cromwell in Lincolnshire to supply the area around north Nottinghamshire.

The new 26.5 hectare site will provide approximately 200,000 tonnes a year and has reserves of an estimated 2.4 million tonnes. It is located close to the A1, with no neighbouring towns or villages in between that trucks have to drive through.

“This quarry is an important development for the business and is part of our aggregates development plan, which will see us investing in new quarries, new plants and building a new wharf to increase our UK production,” said Stephen Redwood, Cemex UK national reserves development director.

The plant supplied and operated by Duo includes a Terex aggregates and wash plant, triple deck rising screen plus sizing and dewatering screens to process 0/4 sharp sand, and 10mm gravel, 20mm and 40mm gravel.

As the minerals are extracted, the site is gradually being restored to wetlands.
