Watch: Frontline Machinery delivers crushing equipment for arctic quarry operations to Canadian Armed Forces

Canadian Forces Station (CFS) Alert, NU rock crusher mobilization.

Canadian Forces Station Alert, also CFS Alert, is a Canadian Armed Forces signals intelligence intercept facility in Alert, Nunavut - the most northern continuously inhabited place in the world.

Supporting infrastructure in such a remote location takes extensive planning and effort. The harsh environment puts extra wear on crushing and screening equipment and crews alike, and it is critical to maintain key facilities for Canadian military operations and Search and Rescue. When CFS Alert required a new crushing spread for their quarry operations in the high arctic, Frontline Machinery was up to the task and delivered a Keestrack H4 Cone Crusher and B4 Jaw Crusher. 

To make such a delivery possible, Frontline's service technicians had to first disassemble both crushing plants, breaking them down into multiple aircraft load packages, using precise configurations. With intricate planning and precise execution, Frontline Machinery was able to successfully perform this difficult task, in one of Canada's most rugged landscapes.
