Astley Moss

The scope of the project was to modify and upgrade the existing de-ligniting sand plant at Astley Moss Quarry in Greater Manchester. 

The process was designed to handle up to 150 t/h of sand and 100 m3/hr of water to produce a decontaminated "concreting" and buidling sands. MEP also had to design the process around the existing capability to produce cable sand. 

At this moment in time, the upgrade has been delivered and installed at the Astley Moss site and is currently going through the commissioning process.
