£2 million upgrade for Hanson Kings X Concrete Plant
Capacity has been doubled at the Kings X operation following a £2 million upgrade...
Both existing two-metre Skako planetary mixers have been replaced with two four-metre models, which can produce up to 230 cubic metres of concrete an hour. The investment allows the team to supply key projects in the capital, including Thames Tideway and Google headquarters, as well as future contracts such as HS2.
As well as increasing capacity at the plant there has been a marked improvement in efficiency.
Brian Charleton - Hanson Concrete MD, commented, “Our King’s Cross plant is located on a strategically placed railhead in the centre of London with all of our aggregate and cement requirements delivered by train from source, keeping over 8,000 lorry movements a year off the roads.
“This investment allows the site to continue playing its part in helping to improve the local area by providing much-needed construction material to the capital in the most environmentally and safest manner possible.”
