Netherlands-based demolition company LEK Sloopwerken has crushed 2.000 cu m (70,000 sq ft) of concrete in just 48 hours, as part of a bridge demolition project.

LEK Sloopwerken, a sustainable demolition company that operates internationally, used a specialist 140 t crusher attachment manufactured by MBI Group subsidiary Mantovanibenne to undertake the viaduct works.

The CR140R attachment was custom-built for the demolition of reinforced concrete and is equipped with double cylinders, a twin-pin system and rebar cutting blades. 

LEK Sloopwerken used mounted the CR140R on a Liebherr 974 excavator in order to carry out the high-reach works, which were undertaken using only low-noise equipment due to bridge’s urban location.
