More than 8 000 cubic meters of aggregates have been processed during the first two months of the year in the Algaba Quarry in Trinidad, southern  Sancti Spiritus, which reports an increase in the production capacity of the plant.

More than 8 000 cubic meters of aggregates have been processed during the first two months of the year in the Algaba Quarry in Trinidad, southern  Sancti Spiritus, which reports an increase in the production capacity of the plant, after being subjected to major repairs in order to recover low levels of washed sand destined to investments.

According to the engineer Andria Martinez Hernandez, director of the quarry located in central Cuba, the plant currently works at a higher pace because its capacity production was increased from 40 to 50 cubic meters per hour and, thus the facility is closer to meet the demands of southern Sancti Spiritus.

This year some 43 000 cubic meters are to be processed and 7000 of washed sand and 1400 of rocks have been ground for construction purposes.  This is an evidence, said Andria, of Trinidad’s quarry recovery, one of the most prepared as for capacity in the territory.

By late 2011 Trinidad rejoined the production of aggregates in the Cuban central province after capital repairs that made it possible to install a new mill with a capacity to crush all the gravel that was previously dismissed.

In addition to the renovation of the quarry, the greatest benefit lies on the mills’ capacity for grinding larger stone fractions, currently used in the manufacture of durable mixes and in the production of asphalt concrete, said the specialist.
