Time to modernize the old stationary plant
Operating for four decades, the stationary plant -- and, more precisely, the primary stage -- was starting to lose productivity due to repeated stops to adjust settings and perform other maintenance operations. Nicolas Vignon, Site Manager at CBR, learned of the SiteBooster™ team’s specialization in tailor-made services and decided to trust the SiteBooster™ solution to modernize the plant at the Creuzeval site. The solution would upgrade his operation with minimal time and budget.
For instance, over the past years the maintenance cost of the scalper was about 20,000 to 25,000 euros per year. After an initial audit performed by Sébastien Thévenet, Project Manager of the SiteBooster™ team who supervised the Creuzeval project from the beginning to the end, it appeared that the jaw crusher was also starting to show signs of age. Indeed, the time spent on maintenance of that machine was so significant that Nicolas Vignon realized: “The choice was obvious to change the crusher rather than stop the site for three months.”
