Bilfinger, a Germany-based industrial services provider, has won an order from Aggregate Industries to assist with the expansion of Bardon Hill quarry in the UK. The contract includes the development, delivery, installation and networking of the electrical infrastructure of the many components and technology platforms required for the project, according to a press release.

"The expansion of the quarry at Bardon Hill is one of the most ambitious projects being pursued in the European cement industry. We are very proud to have won the contract for this comprehensive service contract. This is thanks first of all to our expertise, which allows us to also take on highly complex and technologically sophisticated tasks. On the other hand, our broad and integrated scope of services allows our clients to reap substantial added value since all the needed services are provided by a single source, meaning they can dispense with complex coordination processes," said Tom Blades, CEO, Bilfinger.

The objective of the project is to provide the quarry operator with real-time information for the purposes of steering the facility and monitoring the status of individual system elements. In this way, the company will contribute a key portion of the facility's intelligent automation system. 

 The project is due for completion by the summer of 2019.
