Born to roam: the Bison concrete batch plant from Simem
Like the wild bison of North America, this Bison from Italian manufacturer Simem can roam from place to place because it is “hyper mobile”.
And when it is not roaming, it can produce up to 500 tonnes an hour, making it suitable for large civil works such as dams, airports and tunnel work.
This trailer-mounted plant takes around four hours to install and needs no cranes, said Christopher Bennett, commercial director for UK-based HS Services – the company appointed by Simem as UK & Ireland dealer and installer for batching plant and mixers.
The main trailer consists of a twin-shaft mixer, 1-2 aggregates, powder and liquid dosing devices and loading belt. Importantly, it has a low profile - making it even more mobile for getting to sites with difficult access conditions and also for working on sites with height restrictions.
The Bison can be used with any aggregates trailer, power trailer and service trailer.
