LINZ/ABU DHABI. Masdar City is currently under construction in the emirate of Abu Dhabi and is set to become the world’s first CO2-free city. Renowned companies from all over the world are participating, including the Linz-based company Rubble Master (RM Group).
The Masdar City urban development project began in 2008. It is considered a global flagship in sustainability and is intended to be powered entirely by renewable energy. Linz-based RM Group is also part of this project alongside renowned companies such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Siemens, General Electric, BASF and Bosch Solar Energy.
In the UAE, stationary facilities have so far been used to process construction and demolition waste. With Masdar City, the operator is taking a new direction in this area. “Convinced by the flexibility and throughput of our mobile machines as well as our long-standing partnership, Masdar City Services has once again invested in crushers and screens from Linz. We are very happy with this and it confirms the confidence in our technologies,” explains Gerald Hanisch, Managing Director of the RM Group.
Rubble Master impact crushers and screens enable flexible and rapid changeovers on construction sites. This mobility advantage, combined with low-emission drive technology and low noise and dust generation, is ideal for Masdar City’s narrow, shaded design. Over an area of six square kilometers, concrete is used for the substructure and paving of roads and paths. The Linz company’s machines are mainly used for crushing and screening concrete.
Also used in Saudi Arabia
Machines from Linz are also used in other countries in the Middle East. “With our machines we focus on sustainable practices, show how resources can be used efficiently and building materials can be recycled. “In this way, we can help shape a sustainable future and also illustrate the principles of the circular economy outside of Europe,” says Christian Windhager, Rubble Master’s regional sales manager for the Middle East, the Africa, Spain and Portugal, which sees great potential, particularly in Saudi Arabia. The RM group has been active there since 2012 and has already exported 50 systems to the country.
Rubble Master’s crushers and screens are used, for example, in the new construction of the 25 square kilometer Riyadh city center, in the King Salman Park, under construction since March 2019, or in the world-famous futuristic megaproject.
