Successfully installed metal construction in Latvian cement plant

Friday September 3rd, 2021

Starting from July 2021 Nord Steel has joined the construction and modernization project of the Broceni cement plant in Latvia, recently acquired by Schwenk company – one of the oldest family companies in the German building materials industry.

Nord Steel is responsible for silos modification works and the installation of metal structures at the cement plant. Recently, we reached one of the most important milestones of this project and after only a couple of weeks, we are reaching the final closure.

The photos below show how the assembled upper gallery, connecting the old building to the new one, is being lifted into place. What makes this project unique is that the modification of the gypsum silo in the old building had to be done in 4 days, during a shutdown, so the team worked day and night in two shifts. This was a great example of dream teamwork.

It has been almost a year since the beginning of the construction of the new cement mill and silo. During this time, the silo building has grown to 60 meters and the cement mill has acquired a solid shape. The project is planned to be fully operational until the end of 2021.
