The Challenge . . .

How do you move 4,600 cubic meters (6,000 cubic yards) of concrete from a concrete plant to the shore by truck then get it to the point of placement by barge while maintaining flowability and slump life?

The Solution . . .

ADVA was chosen to get the job done. ADVA retained the slump from the time the mix left the plant to the point of placement 60 minutes later. With the help of ADVA, Southdown was able to serve their customers better, reducing costs, moving the concrete efficiently, with fewer trucks and faster placement times.
