In addition to providing renewable energy sources for its communities, the projects should have a lower carbon footprint due to their use of Vertua cement. Vertua is CEMEX’s portfolio of sustainable products that leverage cutting-edge technology and innovation to help clients meet their construction needs.

“We are proud to support the renewable energy transition with our Vertua family of products,” said Sergio Menéndez, President of CEMEX Europe, Middle East, Africa & Asia. “CEMEX is constantly innovating building solutions to enable its customers to be at the forefront of a lower carbon and circular construction industry.”

Ivovik wind farm, the most significant investment in renewable energy sources in Bosnia and Herzegovina, will have 20 wind turbines and is expected to produce enough energy to meet the demand of more than 100 000 households. For this project, CEMEX is supplying Vertua Ultra lower carbon cement for the turbine concrete foundations. The wind farm is expected to reduce annual CO2 emissions from energy production by about 240 000 t. As of now, ten foundations out of 20 have been completed.

Two wind farm projects near Obrovac in the Dalmatia region of Croatia consist of a total of 25 wind turbines. Vertua Plus cement is being used to produce concrete for the foundations on which the wind turbines will be mounted.

CEMEX is providing Vertua lower carbon cement for the hydro tunnel of the Dabar hydropower project in eastern Herzegovina. In 2022, CEMEX provided 21 000 t of cement to produce concrete installed in the tunnel lining using special steel formwork.

Vertua has a specialised portfolio of sustainable, high-quality construction products that can significantly impact the planet due to their attributes. Vertua allows customers to tailor their projects' sustainable characteristics through its five specific and measurable attributes: lower carbon, energy efficiency, water conservation, recycled materials, and design optimisation.
