In an area covering more than 3 Ha, with 2 unloading quay facilities, one for sand and one for gravel, NHM is permanently based in Ostend. Its screening plant, the most efficient and environmentally-friendly in Belgium, allows the screening of 300 tons of marine ballast per hour. The materials, which have been sorted, washed, crushed and screened, are free of all impurities, thanks to the water separator.
The quality of Benor is therefore ensured, as its optimal transport, either by river or by road with the help of its subsidiary « Trans BlueLine » , or by sea using cargo ships, thus enabling us to successfully service all customers in Northern Europe. The railway is also adjacent to NHM's facilities.
NHM is supplied by its own marine concessions (in Belgium, Holland and Denmark ...), as well as by those of its preferred suppliers (in England and France).
NHM also has the exclusive right to sell recycled aggregates processed by the Ostend-based recycling company « RECYC WEST bvba ». Recycled aggregates have long been used in road construction. The Copro label guarantees the consistent quality of those aggregates.
NHM Ostend, with its deep-water quays (from 5.5 m to 10.5m) can accept even the largest boats, which are also easily able to manoeuvre thanks to the widening of the port entrance.
Gneiss and sandstone, produced by its sister companies in Norway (Oster Pükk & NSE), are also delivered by sea going cargos of up to 30,000 tons.
