The NorthConnex project in northern Sydney is a $3 billion project to link the M1 Pacific Motorway at Wahroonga to the M2 Motorway at West Pennant Hills, via a nine kilometre tunnel – the nations longest. The project will inject around $4 billion into the NSW economy, and when it opens in 2019, the tunnel will remove around 5,000 trucks off Pennant Hills Road each day and reduce travel times by approximately 15 minutes.
The contractors for the NorthConnex project required conical mixing tanks for mixing concrete admixtures onsite. The solution needed to provide mobility and flexibility for set up of the mixing tanks and their use. As the project is short-term (approximately 5 years), they were looking for a complete package that would be easy to repurpose, including transportable tanks and agitators engineered to their specifications. The erosive nature of admixtures along with Australia's harsh weather means non-corrosive materials with high UV stabilisation are important to use.
