CEMEX has announced its participation in the construction of the main plant of Danish firm LM Wind Power. The plant is dedicated to producing the longest wind turbine blades in the world. CEMEX supplied materials and provided tailored logistics operations for this project, featuring cutting-edge technology to reduce the cost of energy generation and supply renewable energy to wind farms in France and across Europe.
With LM Wind Power’s main plant expanding over 11.5 ha., which is an equivalent area to the Stade de France, the plant is located on relatively harsh terrain. A special CEMEX concrete mix was required for its foundation, which was supplied through 800 mixer trucks. The project also required CEMEX’s self-compacting concrete for the rising of the production building’s over 20 m tall walls.
“We are very proud to participate in LM Wind Power’s main plant construction, an exceptional project with an important role in sustainable development,” said Franck Amourette, Cluster Director Basse-Normandie for CEMEX in France. “With a considerable extension and featuring the latest technology, this project allowed us to provide all our suite of services: from high-quality products to tailored logistics assessment.”
CEMEX is a global building materials company that provides high-quality products and reliable services to customers and communities in more than 50 countries.
