Solid wins for Hoverdale at the 2024 SHAPA Awards

  Hoverdale UK Limited, a global provider of conveyor system equipment and on-site plant engineering services, won multiple awards at the 2024 Solids Handling & Processing Association (SHAPA) Awards.            

The 2024 SHAPA Awards took place at the Merseyside Maritime Museum, where member companies and industry professionals celebrated the collective merits achieved over the last 12 months.


Hoverdale received two awards for Company of the Year and Innovation in Technology, plus runner-up awards in the Apprentices Special Award category for employees Harry Beverley & Ben Tilson.


Hoverdale identified a market need for a ‘conveyor system condition monitoring tool’ and developed the industry-leading, multi-award-winning, technology called the HALO – Hoverdale Automated Linked Technology. The HALO was so successful in its application that the Hoverdale team continued to innovate and develop the technology for use with their latest engineered product, the Hoverdale motorised brush conveyor belt cleaner and advanced the HALO technology for clients operating MRF/ERF sites to use on conveyor belts.

Initially, the motorised brush cleaner was designed and engineered to clean chevron and cleated belts that conventional contact belt scrapers could not clean effectively, however, it soon became apparent that the system was also very effective in all types of conveyor belts. The brush system prevents carryback and spillage from flat, chevron, cleated, pocketed, flighted and bucket conveyor belts.Matthew Beverley, Hoverdale Chairman, said:


“We are delighted to be recognised at the SHAPA Awards for Company of the Year and Innovation in Technology for our motorised brush technology – the HALO. We receive these as a total team effort.


We are extremely grateful to have such a robust team of engineers who work hard to deliver our core products and services across the bulk materials-handling industry .”
