Terex MP Showcases Strength, Sustainable Innovation at Hillhead

Terex Materials Processing (MP) demonstrated its strength and commitment to sustainable innovation at Hillhead 2024 with a robust display of 19 products across six of its brands.

“Hillhead has always been a major event in the Terex MP trade show calendar and our presence this year underscores our position as a powerhouse in the aggregates industry,” said Pat Brian, vice president, Terex Aggregates. “Our impressive line-up, of which eight are new products, reinforces our strong portfolio of customer-focused products that are paving the way for a sustainable future.”

In the demo area, Terex MP featured the new Powerscreen 1300X Maxtrak Cone Crusher, EvoQuip Bison 220R Jaw Crusher, Finlay Electric I-120RS Impact Crusher, Finlay Electric 883+ Scalping Screen—both of which were powered by the new Finlay TG500 Tracked Generator.

On the stands, Terex launched new products including the Terex Washing Systems STREAM software, Terex MPS WG220E Portable Cone Crusher, and the Finlay C1550+ Hybrid prototype. Other existing products featured on the stands included the Powerscreen Titan 600, Powerscreen Warrior 1400XE (hybrid), Finlay J-1170+, EvoQuip Caiman Shredder, MDS M412 Recycling Trommel and a range of equipment from Terex Washing Systems’ Feeder to Filterpress Solutions.

The collection of Aggregates brands that sits within the Terex MP segment continues to grow from strength to strength, reinforced by Terex central sourcing platforms, advanced digital development tools, cross-portfolio technologies, and extensive engineering and manufacturing resources globally. The recent launch of MAGNA, a brand designed to meet the demands of customers requiring larger volume processing, demonstrates Terex MP’s strong track record of establishing and nurturing businesses by leveraging its technology, networks, and manufacturing expertise.

In line with the construction industry’s requirement for a greener tomorrow, Terex MP has focused on supporting customers in reducing carbon emissions in their crushing and screening operations. Electrification, designed to provide customers with alternative energy options, has been a significant focus. 

David Trimble, Group Engineering Director, Terex Materials Processing said, “Currently, almost 90% of our models are available with alternative power, and we continue to launch new machines to bridge that gap. This is evidenced here at Hillhead with the new Finlay Electric I-120RS Impact Crusher and Finlay Electric 883+ Aggregates Environmental Concrete Handling Lifting Scalping Screen—both powered by the new Finlay TG500 Tracked Generator.”

Recognizing that there is no one-size-fits-all solution, electrification is just one part of Terex MP’s comprehensive alternative power strategy, which aims to develop flexible options that adapt to the customer’s preferred energy source. A pioneering £8.1 million project with CATAGEN – a catalyst testing expert developing new technologies in green hydrogen and efuels – will deliver a decarbonized end-to-end demonstration of a Powerscreen Premiertrak 450E crusher and Chieftain 1700XE screener, powered by green hydrogen and e-diesel at a working quarry site in Northern Ireland in 2024. 

This project will showcase a solution for the decarbonization of Terex MP crushing and screening equipment through driveline efficiency improvements and the displacement of fossil diesel with e-diesel and green hydrogen.

“Our presence at Hillhead celebrates our rich heritage, strong brands, and comprehensive portfolio,” concluded Brian. “Thank you to our distributors, customers, and other industry partners who interacted with the team at Hillhead. The positive response to our new product offerings and ongoing efforts to support customers in this alternative fuel era marks a significant step towards sustainable success for generations to come.”
