Like any successful business, Sovereign Concrete Product’s production capabilities are dependant on a combination of our own resources, those of our suppliers and on the services available to be called upon.
Production Areas and Cranage
The Ballarat site covers an area of approximately 18500 m2 (1.85 Ha) of which approximately 4000 m2 is under cover work areas and office space.
The plant has three major production areas under cover allowing continuous production in all weather. Each production area is serviced by an overhead bridge crane. The three covered production areas are:
– 5 Tonne Bay. Approx 450 m2 of usable production area serviced by a bridge crane with a SWL of 5 tonne;
– 30 Tonne Bay. Approx 600 m2 of usable production area serviced by a bridge crane with a SWL of 30 tonne;
– Pit Shed. Approx 750 m2 of usable production area serviced by a bridge crane with a SWL of 10 tonne;
A planning permit is in place for the installation of a bridge crane of 50 tonne SWL to be erected in the existing Pit Shed. The permit also covers the extension of the shed to take it from its existing 750 m2 of usable space to over 1500 m2
A 15 tonne all terrain mobile crane services the adjoining yard.
50 tonne and 100 tonne moblile cranes are hired as and when the need arises from Barry James Cranes in Ballarat.
