Military recycling: Compact crusher recycles an entire navy base

27 February 2008

The town of Paldiski in Estonia, once part of the former USSR, is now investing in the future with a harbour project that will increase passenger travel to Sweden. Private investors have acquired a site on the south shore of the Gulf of Finland, which was once home to a Russian Navy nuclear submarine training centre.

This 3 km 2 complex of more than 20 buildings had to be cleared as the first part of the development project. A total of 100000 tonnes of demolition waste was generated in this operation – mostly reinforced concrete and bricks – and some 60% of this was processed with a Rubble Master RM80 Compact Recycler. The site clearance work was carried out by local demolition specialist Levkoriin & KA OU

“Construction work is booming in the Baltic States”, said Veljo Laur, sales manager Balti Tehnika, Rubble Master' dealer in the region since 2003. “Today 15 of the powerful and versatile Rubble Master compact crushers and some RM screens are working in the Baltics. The main benefits for customers are the high productivity and low fuel consumption.”
