Bulk World Trade, a company belonging to the Lafarge Cement group, has invested approximately EUR20m in building is clinker plant in the Port of Tarragona. Work began three years ago during the summer of 2007.
Bulk World Trade‘s facilities have a clinker mill, a storage shed and a silo for cement storage.
The plant of the company, owned by Lafarge Cement, has been put in place in parts, since the storage shed, the first part to be built, was first used in 2008.
This plant to grind clinker has the capacity to produce 300,000pta. A cement silo has a capacity to store 4000t of cement.
The location of the World Trade Bulk plant within the Port of Tarragona will allow the company to provide greater flexibility in the transport of clinker, a product that arrives by sea to the harbour where it can be downloaded directly from the new facility of the company.
