Groundbreaking for new bulk cement terminal, Guam
Published: 25 February 2010

Cementon Micronesia and the Port Authority of Guam, along with local and federal dignitaries, and dignitaries from the Asian region, celebrated the groundbreaking of its state of the art bulk cement terminal adjacent to Golf Pier at the Port of Guam.

With up to 26,000t of storage capacity provided through four separate silos and distributed through four efficient truck discharge lanes, Cementon Micronesia will have the ability to provide multiple types of cement and cementitious materials to meet all civilian and military requirements for these products. Cementon Micronesia’s cement terminal is a much needed addition to the Port Authority’s current 10,000t cement capacity provided by the current bulk cement supplier’s sole silo.

Cementon Micronesia’s cement terminal more than triples the total storage capacity presently available on Guam and will ensure that cement shortages on Guam are a thing of the past.

Speaking of the new terminal, John Perez, Manager of Cementon Micronesia said: “We are pleased to be a part of the solution to Guam’s need for reliable supply of cement. This modern bulk cement terminal is extremely important not only to the economic buildup of our island and our region but also to the military’s plans to further secure the interests of our nation.”

“We are proud to be associated with the Port Authority of Guam and the Guam business community” he added.

This bulk cement terminal represents an important new phase in the direction of the Port Authority’s vision and of its master plan, and establishes a long-term relationship between the Port and Cementon Micronesia. The new bulk cement terminal is expected to become operational during the third quarter, 2010
