For nearly 20 years, SKAKO partnered CEMEX in the successful supply of concrete sleepers for Network Rail (owners of Britain’s railway network) at their Washwood Heath site in Birmingham, England. The development of the HS2 project meant that the factory had to be closed down and relocated (the factory site was on the planned route for the new railway line). Therefore CEMEX had to find an alternative site for the production of concrete sleepers.

An existing site was established but required a major overhaul of the batching plant in order to maintain previous levels of concrete output to satisfy Network Rail’s specific requirements. Due to our successful collaboration at the previous factory, SKAKO was the number one choice for the supply of the batching plant equipment. The project involved the supply of a new SKAKO AM1500 mixer, a bespoke CONFLEX transportation system to fit within the existing infrastructure as well as a new SKAKOMAT control system to operate the plant autonomously.
