Silo, Ecuador


An exceptionally large, 70,000 t capacity clinker storage was required for this cement producer in a remote, high seismic part of Ecuador. The silo was located in close quarters to the existing plant structures and had to be built in a timely manner.


In order to speed up construction, the large roof and penthouse was designed such that it was integrated into the slipform deck.


Consultec was responsible for mechanical and civil/structural design.
