Bauer Technologies, a subsidiary of the BAUER Group, has been awarded a foundation works contract on Sirius Minerals’ £2.2bn mine development in North Yorkshire – a project destined to become one of Britain’s most significant mines, producing polyhalite, a high value multi-nutrient organic fertiliser.
Bauer will design and construct 5 no. Diaphragm Wall circular shafts at depths ranging between 60m and120m in rock. Bauer plans to work using 3no BAUER BC40 cutter units.
Speaking about the project Martin Blower, Managing Director of Bauer Technologies, commented “This is an exciting project. We are delighted that Sirius has chosen us to deliver these project critical shafts. Bauer Technologies has an established reputation for delivering foundation solutions on some of the largest and technically complex projects in the UK and this project will allow us to further demonstrate our expertise and innovation.”
Bauer has been on-site from September 2017, and diaphragm wall activities have already commenced.
