Open Day: Transforming Trommel Fines to Sand
We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to see how CDE wet processing solutions are manufactured in Northern Ireland. This will be followed by a short trip to our customer Skipway Waste Management in Lisburn, where you can see a 50tph trommel fines recycling plant in action.
About Skipway Waste Management
Skipway Waste Management in Lisburn operates the only trommel fines recycling plant in Northern Ireland. The company processes construction, demolition and commercial wastes through a dry waste processing plant and picking station to recover materials and divert them from landfill. Trommel fines are a by-product generated during the recovery process.
The 50tph wet processing plant diverts trommel fines from landfill and converts the material into a resource by producing recycled products with the same specification and quality as quarry grade sand, therefore making it suitable for concrete and building products while also improving the quality of other recycled aggregates such as pipe bedding and recycled hardcore.
About CDE Manufacturing
Our advanced wet processing solutions are commissioned for customers around the world, from Creagh Concrete in Toome, Northern Ireland to Posillico Materials LLC on Long Island, New York; Repurpose It in Melbourne, Australia to Feiring Bruk, Norway. These solutions are designed, engineered and manufactured right here in Northern Ireland by our industrious and highly skilled teams.
We acquired the 300,000 sq. ft. Monkstown campus from Caterpillar in 2018 and since then have invested a further £8m in upgrades and improvements to the facility. As part of the latest investment, two new Bystronic high-speed sheet metal laser cutting systems have been installed which integrate with a new 400-tonne steel storage and management system incorporating fully automated loading and offloading of the laser cutters.
Tours for this event will run across the day every hour from 9am to 2pm, with each guided tour taking approximately 3 hours. Below is an example agenda of a guided 3-hour tour.
Please note tours of the Skipway site will not begin until after 10am for those wishing to just join this part of the tour.
