A quick trip – 10 flights, 7 days

I’m regularly travelling to see our clients and it does amazing things to the body clock!  Learning to love the sun whether its the middle of the night or the middle of the day is a handy trick.  That and wearing an eye mask.  On a more serious note, I’m excited to see the two mobile mixing plants in Montreal, Canada.  They have been working on some terrific RCC projects.  I’ll post some more about this topic soon.

Until then it’s all about the end-product – airport interiors!

Ipswich, Queensland, Australia

Year: 2009

Machine Number:  1081

Customer: Origin Alliance
Location: Ipswich, Queensland, Australia

The upgrade of the Ipswich motorway has been a landmark infrastructure project in Queensland during 2009 to 2010.

An Aran paste backfill plant (MODUMIX II-P) was used to produce mine fill paste and slurry for filling abandoned underground coal mine stopes and tunnels which lay under the new motorway alignment.

Backfill was delivered around the construction site in mixer trucks for pumping underground. The backfill product was based on flyash reclaimed from a local thermal power station, crusher dust, cement, and treated water.

Highly fluctuating moisture contents in the flyash were accommodated in Aran’s intuitive computer control system.
