MB Crusher equipment is being used to help build facilities for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar
Screening attachments from MB Crusher are carrying out useful work in Qatar on the construction project to build the new 2022 World Cup stadia.

The firm says that this will be the third time the World Cup has seen the use of mobile crushing or screening attachments from MB Crusher being used, with similar units having been employed for the 2014 event in Brazil and the 2010 event in South Africa.

The local construction company involved in these projects, Al-Jaber and Makhlouf Company, is using an MB-S18 screening bucket for the works of Al Furousiya Street, in the Aspire Zone.

With just one piece of equipment connected to a Hitachi excavator, the company has been able to complete work at a site that would have required much more time, more resources and cost more. The excavated material was screened by the MB-S18. The coarser part was used as a sub-base, while the fine part was mixed with sand and used as base.

Because the large processing plants are about 50km from the site, the use of the MB screener reduced truck journeys on a road that already has a high traffic load. And by processing and reusing the excavated material directly on site, processing times and procurement costs have been halved.

The MB equipment will also be used on further projects in Qatar, including building new transport infrastructure. Jobs still planned in the country include the construction of a 320km new metro network, and the connection of all the stadia with the country's motorway system.
