BHS-Sonthofen to supply six batch mixers to CEC-PowerChina and Pakistan Frontier Works’ Diamer-Basha dam site

BHS-Sonthofen (Tianjan) has reported the successful delivery of two of a total of six twin-shaft batch mixers to the site of CEC-PowerChina and Pakistan Frontier Works’ upcoming Diamer-Basha dam. The Chinese division of the Germany-based company is supplying four DKX 7.00 7m3/batch precast concrete mixers and two DKX 6.00 6m3/batch precast concrete mixers as part of the project. The mixers will contribute towards the 18.6Mm3 of mainly roller-compacted concrete required for the dam’s construction.

General manager Ronny Laux said “The hydraulically bound base layers required for the dam (also known as roller-compacted concrete) must withstand the heaviest of loads. Our mixers are designed to handle demanding mixing tasks. The twin-shaft batch mixers meet the highest demands for mix homogeneity and reproducibility, even with large quantities – ensuring optimum concrete quality.”
