Rapid International has supplied one of its new Rapidmix 400CW mobile continuous concrete mixing plants (pugmills) to Thalle Construction in Leonard, Texas.
The new Rapidmix is being utilised for the production of high volume structural concrete and soil cement on the US$37m project to construct raw water storage for the Bois D’Arc Regional Water Treatment Plant.
Thalle Construction offers a range of construction and construction material services including dams, landfills, site work, communication technology, and roller compacted concrete.
Thalle has been a member of Tully Group since 2012.
The Bois D’Arc Regional Water Treatment Plant forms part of the larger US$1.6bn Bois D’Arc Reservoir and Regional Water Supply Project by the North Texas Municipal Water District.
The project will supply 70 million gallons daily initially to customers in North Texas – one of the fastest-growing regions in the US.
The reservoir will be lined with the latest technology geomembrane and HDP liner covered in 30.48cm of soil cement.
Thalle required a mixing solution with the flexibility to produce both high and low slump concrete at volume in one machine.
Robert Farrow, project manager at Thalle Construction, commented: “The process has been very successful.
“Thalle has successfully poured in excess of 800 CY/day of the structural concrete and looks forward to increasing our production on the soil cement.”
The project is currently 4 weeks ahead of schedule and below budget.
