Cloburn Quarry Company, Europe’s premier red granite aggregate provider, is on the brink of a significant expansion at its Scottish site. Amidst the anticipation, the company remains unwavering in its commitment to health and safety. Acknowledging the potential risks associated with increased site traffic, Cloburn Quarry has taken a proactive step by investing in a 6m Ecowash Extra system supplied by Wheelwash.


Cloburn Quarry

Situated in the historic county of Lanarkshire in Scotland, Cloburn Quarry boasts red granite, formed from molten lava millions of years ago. As expansion plans were underway, the team recognised the pivotal role health and safety plays in their operations. One primary concern was the potential impact of increased traffic on local roads, leading to hazardous mud conditions. In response, the quarry made a strategic investment in the Wheelwash 6m Ecowash Extra system to mitigate these risks.


The Wheelwash 6m Ecowash Extra System: A Proactive Solution

The selection of the Wheelwash 6m Ecowash Extra system underscores Cloburn Quarry’s unwavering dedication to health and safety. This state-of-the-art equipment is designed to efficiently manage and control on-site mud by thoroughly washing the wheels of site vehicles before they exit the premises. This measure is critical in ensuring that the additional traffic associated with the expansion doesn’t pose risks to local roads and communities.


What to do next: 

Major expansion projects in quarries and mining sites often necessitate a wheel wash as part of their planning requirements. Proactively implementing a wheel wash not only mitigates the risk of safety incidents but also reflects positively on your company’s reputation. It demonstrates a commitment to safety and the ability to execute ambitious projects efficiently.
