The difference a year makes for Sharp Skips.
Over a year ago, recycling solutions provider, Kiverco, met with Sharp Skips to discuss their plans for increasing the efficiency and production of their waste business. One year on, and with a new Kiverco plant installed, Kiverco caught up with Terry Sharp (Managing Director) to find out how they are getting on...
TERRY, WHAT WERE YOUR INITIAL REQUIREMENTS WHEN APPROACHING KIVERCO?
“We required the development of a bigger facility on the current site which would be capable of handling up to 50TPH of Construction & Demolition waste. We could see straight away the benefits of what Kiverco were proposing and we were eager to ensure all the best technology would be incorporated into the plant - such as Kiverco, Steinert and Spaleck equipment. We also wanted one line to process all instead of the current set up we had, which was one-line handling heavies and another lights. A fines treatment system was also on our wish list as we wanted to ensure LOI compliance and further enhance the return on our investment.”
HAS THE FINISHED PLANT MET ALL OF YOUR REQUIREMENTS?
“We are delighted with the completed plant and it is certainly achieving what we wanted. It is handling between 40-50TPH. The segregation of products and the product quality is exactly to the standard we required. In terms of the installation and commissioning process, it was excellent, we couldn’t have asked for better. We had very little downtime and all went smoothly. The Kiverco team were extremely professional throughout the process.”
WHAT IMPACT, IF ANY, HAS IT HAD ON YOUR BUSINESS?
“When looking at the impact this has had on our business, the plant itself is such a good sales tool for us. We have had visits from various authorities, and they have been impressed with the standards and quality of our set up. We can process a lot more waste than previously which obviously has a positive impact on our business. We can now run the plant on a single shift where previously we were running double shifts. Without a doubt, we will see a return for our investment.”
