Very good pics of fine machinery!

How come everything is new? Is this a new mine or did they only have very old EQ?

Its a new OCCS that starting to reclaim a large area of derelict/contaminated land in South Wales, with underlying coal being extracted and then the site restored and redveleoped once mining has ceased. Apparently the site will be operational for 17 years!

This is the website for the project:
