Ammann concrete plant key to Malaysian affordable housing project

Musyati Development Sdn Bhd has deployed an Elba CBT 60 SL concrete plant from Ammann on a housing project in Sibu, in the state of Sarawak, Malaysia. The company said the plant is consistent and reliable, instilling confidence in the entire construction team. It is also fuel-efficient and features the intuitive as1 control system.

Benjamin, a plant manager on site, reportedly described the Elba CBT 60 as “simple and easy to operate” and also praised the plant’s reliability and fuel efficiency. The CBT 60 SL can be set up quickly due to its folding mechanisms and compact design. According to Ammann, the plant needs just two open-top containers for relocation and is manufactured to meet favourable transport dimensions when travelling.

The compact plant is equipped with an Elba CEM 1000 S single-shaft mixer and an integrated linear bin for storing between two and four aggregate types. Cement, water, aggregate scales and all other electric and pneumatic plant components are pre-installed and ready for operation.

The integrated control cabin houses the switching cabinet and offers additional space for the control system. With a theoretical hourly output of 60 cu m/hr, the Elba CBT 60 SL is suitable for a wide range of applications.

No foundation is required for plant installation, said Ammann, as it only needs a surface with soil compaction of 250 kN/sq m. Optional solutions are also available for cement silo installation. In addition, the Elba CBT 60 SL has been designed for excellent accessibility to service and maintenance points.

Musyati is a relatively new development company, founded only five years ago. Its main clients are the housing ministry and private homeowners. Musyati’s sister company already has an Ammann pre-mix plant at work on the Pan Borneo Highway project. The success of that plant is believed to be a key reason that led Musyati to choose the Ammann CBT 60.
