This week saw a major milestone achieved in the RMS roll out when the 1 millionth cubic metre was batched through RMS at the Edmonton plant. RMS is the new dispatch and plant control system that is currently being rolled out across the UK. Over 140 plants have now been upgraded and the project is on target to be completed early in the first quarter of 2016.
Steve Crompton, National Technical Director, commented: “The roll out of RMS is a large, complex and challenging project and the Team, led by Noel Dixon, have done a remarkable job in installing the system across the UK in such a tight time frame. The batching of 1 million cubic metres through the new system is a symbolic milestone and could not have been achieved without the dedication of the Project Team and support from across the business in a collaborative effort to improve and update our systems.”
