Electric concrete pump

The Royal Albert Hall project is utilising an electric concrete pump on site to help minimise environmental impacts. The pump uses a rotating screw to pump the concrete down the lines as opposed to a traditional piston pump which can be noisy.

The pump not only reduces carbon emissions compared with traditional alternatives, it also improves the air quality of the project and minimises nuisance caused to surrounding sensitive receptors.

The benefits go beyond the environment. Through reducing noise and having no direct emissions, this piece of plant has a positive impact on the health of the workforce on site. This is a great example of using planning hierarchy to reduce emissions, noise and pollution at the source.
