FlyingBelt - Pouzols

FlyingBelt - Pouzols

The FlyingBelt is in operation to transport the material from the new quarry directly to manufacturing site for further processing and storage, “flying” over the Herault River, according to the minimum environmental impact required by the local authorities.

One of the main advantages of this new system has been the straight connection of the two sites allowing a 215 meters connection instead of a 10 km transport by truck.
