MB crushes basalt in Djibouti
28 June 2018
Djibouti is located at the junction of the three rifts – the East African, the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea rifts. It plays a crucial junction role for import and export, representing a major gateway connection.
This is one of the reasons that motivated the Djibouti Ports & Free Zones Authority to begin construction of a $3.5 billion free trade zone, which extends over 4,800 hectares.
The initiative is expected to create 200,000 new jobs, and cement Djibouti’s role as the strategic link between global maritime trade routes, within the Belt and Road Initiative.
MB Crusher technology is playing a key role in the development of this crucial project.
At the beginning Mr Yangkai, the general manager responsible for the DIFTZ project, was impressed by the power of MB Crushers, simply by watching it working. Quality and quantity of recycled material daily obtained by the MB Crusher BF120.4, was one of the main aspects that the company took in consideration when decided to buy it.
Once Mr Yangkai had the BF120.4 working at the Djibouti project, and verified first-hand the MB Crusher bucket performance and the benefits gained from it, he simply wouldn’t consider any other options.
The MB crusher bucket will crush over 1 million cu m of basalt for road construction purposes.
