Surface clearance

11 April 2008

The estonian town of paldiski is currently in the process of developing its harbour facilities with a project intended to increase passenger travel to Sweden. The site of a former Soviet training centre for the crews of nuclear submarines, it covers an area approaching 3 km2 and, once construction work is finished, will be the location for an industrial and office complex.

More than 20 buildings make up the demolition work required, with an estimated 100000 tonnes of demolition waste generated by their demolition, mainly consisting of steel reinforced concrete and brick. Levkorin & KA OU was brought on site to process this debris, and used a Rubble Master RM80 tracked compact crusher to slowly work its way through the material on site, with the crusher being fed by a hydraulic excavator and a traditional bulldozer.
