Rapidbatch 120, a new mobile concrete batching plant supplied to civil engineering firm and contractors CA Blackwell enables them to carry-out production of concrete at remote locations.
Rapidbatch 120 enabled CA Blackwell to carry-out production of concrete at the remote Clyde Wind Farm in Scotland.

The mobile batching plant allows them to produce concrete for the turbine bases with each base requiring 360m of concrete.
Steve Johnson regional director of Blackwell spoke of his satisfaction with the mobile batching plant: "We have been delighted with the Rapidbatch 120 from Rapid International".
The mobile batching plant manufactured by Rapid International, is the first of its kind in the UK to be purchased by a contractor and allows consistent high output and quality concrete to be produced.
The batching plant is fully mobile making it ideal for projects in remote areas as concrete is mixed on-site reducing transport and installation costs.
The Rapidbatch includes Rapid's very own 3 cubic metre twin shaft mixer which produces a very high quality homogeneous concrete mix.
Short mixing times allows for increased production, up to 120 m of concrete per hour.
