CDE supplied a turnkey sand and gravel processing plant to Cemex UK

A new Cemex quarry at Datchet, Berkshire, adjacent to the M4, is starting to supply essential sand and gravel to construction customers and readymix concrete plants in London and the southeast.

Datchet quarry will supply approximately 400,000 tonnes of material per annum and is of strategic importance in the supply chain to the region’s construction industry. With many quarries in the area now exhausted, Datchet will provide a locally sourced and more sustainable material.

For the first time in Cemex UK’s aggregate business, the plant was supplied by CDE Gobal with the new CDE M2500 modular plant at a cost of around  $4m. It is designed to deliver finished material of sand, 4-10mm and 10-20mm stone and consists of a triple deck Prograde Screen, a CDE Evowash sand plant, conveyors and an oversize recycle system incorporating a Metso 200 crusher.
