Plant & Engineering

The Blackwell Plant and Engineering Department are responsible for the provision and maintenance of the Blackwell Fleet and provide mobile plant repair and maintenance services to external clients from extensive workshop facilities at the Company's Head Office in Earls Colne, Essex. External engineering services are provided to the materials handling, waste, quarrying and construction sectors and are undertaken on either a preventative or reactive basis - either on Client sites or in our workshops. All aspects of mobile plant engineering are undertaken including welding, line boring, full refurbishment and paint spraying.



Wind farm construction in the remote Scottish Highlands brought about many challenges, not least producing and delivering the 350cu.m of concrete required for each of the turbine bases.

On site concrete batching was part of the solution. However, the mountainous terrain required more than a standard transit mixer could offer.

Blackwell Plant and Engineering, in conjunction with a specialist concrete equipment supplier, developed a 6.0 cu.m mixer, complete with power pack, on a demountable sub chassis system.

Five mixer units were constructed and mounted onto the company’s Bell B30D articulated dump trucks. The mixer units can be demounted and the dump bodies refitted in approximately 4 hours.

This demountable system provided greater versatility of the equipment and a cost-effective solution to this application.

The mixer units are available for hire, either individually or together with our Rapid Batch 120 batching plant.
