The Project

Tasked from consultation with international machine supplier CDE Group for site requirements and specification, all Crossmuller’s services and capabilities were brought on for the build. This included civil works and the design of machinery, construction of the site and shed, mechanical and hydraulic fit out of equipment, fabrication and supply of equipment not supplied from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and the electrical fit out of both machinery and facility.

By the time Crossmuller completed the build, it was largest drill mud resource recovery plant in NSW with expectations that 350,000 tonnes will pass through the site annually. This will return treated mud fines and aggregates that can be used as engineered fill, sand, specialist soil and compost products which are on-sold for use in the building, landscaping, and agricultural industries contributing to the circular economy that reDirect Recycling has built the business model on.
