Guam: PAG to consider plans for cement silos
Published: 02 June 2008

The Marianas Business Journal is reporting the Port Authority of Guam will consider two measures at its June 3 board meeting designed to ease supply and storage of cement on Guam. One will allow a company to build up to six cement silos on port land. Agency general manager Carlos Salas says a private sector firm has proposed a silo farm to maximize capacity at the port.

Salas notes once the construction boom associated with the buildup tapers off, the silos, which are collapsible, can be moved.

The other measure the port will vote on will extend the dolphin mooring so that vessels carrying Hansen Permanente cement loads can come closer to the port to fully unload, avoiding dredging or repeated trips to unload cement cargo.
