Overview Cemex, a Mexican owned cement company, developed this 1.2 million ton plant at Tilbury Docks in London. This facility is the largest of its kind in the UK cement industry, final project costs are estimated at £49M. The plant produces three different mixtures of cement using recycled materials such as power station ash and blast furnace slag. The plant is fully automated and achieves significant running cost savings when compared to its competitors by using cutting edge production equipment like its vertical grind mill, the first of its type in the country. Designer Group entered into a joint venture with the French organisation SNEF to secure this contract and to work in partnership to deliver this complex industrial project.
