Two Bat Booth® units reached their destination in a new location in Chile. This first ever delivery to the country means a successful business start for Mideco in Latin America.
Given the fact that dust is a very dangerous occupational health hazard to millions of workers globally, companies in Chile are open to consider new cost-effective ways to fight dangers of dust in the workplace and are looking for the best solutions how to handle it.
Following the government instructions with the purpose to prevent occupational lung diseases, the very first company in Chile that implemented an innovative Australian solution for personnel de-dusting from hazardous cement dust is Cemento Polpaico SA .
One of two units, delivered to the country, was installed at Polpaico plant, Santiago.
Cemento Polpaico SA is a part of Chilean Cement & Concrete Product Manufacturing Industry. Operating since 1944, the company is functioning mainly in the infrastructure sector and is the largest cement producer in the country with installed capacity of 2.7Mt/y.
