New Warrior 1400 for O’Keefe Construction

Greenwich-based company expands recycling operations within the commercial port at Chatham

O’KEEFE Construction (Greenwich) Ltd have this week taken delivery of a Warrior 1400 screen as part of an expansion of their soils recycling facility within the commercial port at Chatham, in Kent.

This facility, through use of lime and cement additives, is able to recover over 90% of construction and demolition waste arisings to produce a complete range of bound and unbound aggregates.

With stringent factory production control in place, it is imperative to O’Keefe’s managing director, Patrick O’Keefe, that any screening equipment deployed at the site is fast, flexible, and reliable.

With a Terex Pegson XR400 crusher and a Powerscreen Warrior 800 screen already in the O’Keefe fleet, Blue were the obvious choice to supply the latest addition.

According to O’Keefe, the ease with which the screen meshes can be changed on the Warrior 1400, thanks to the ability to hydraulically raise the screen decks, will allow them to react swiftly to customer demand for single-sized aggregates, while keeping pace with the primary screening of imported material.

Moreover, with the Warrior 800 acting as a secondary screen, cost-effective recovery – with virtually no waste – will now be possible from even the most difficult of materials, once the waste has been treated using O’Keefe’s SMARTR hydraulically bound material process.

O’Keefe say they will shortly reach the milestone of 100,000 tonnes processed at their plants in Silvertown, East London, and Chatham, Kent, since October 2009.
