Simem’s plants set new world daily concrete production record
First publishedon www.AggBusiness.com
Simem says two of its concrete batching plants have allowed a contractor leading a major new East African project to set a new world record for daily concrete production.
Salini Impreglio has been using two Simem Wetbeton 140 plants to produce 23,200m³ of cement/day for the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam project. Situated on the Blue River Nile River around 40km east of the Sudan border, the project involves the construction of a main dam in Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC), with two power stations installed at the foot of it. At 6,000 MW, the Dam will be the largest hydroelectric power plant in Africa on its completion.
Simem’s involvement in the Dam project is said to have further enhanced its already impressive reputation for quality concrete batching plant supply to major global dam works.
In other news from the Italian firm, concrete batching plant specialists H S Services, who have been delivering plants to UK sites for more than 25 years, have been officially appointed as Simem’s UK & Ireland dealers and installers.
