CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. is supplying 250 000 m3 of a variety of specialised, ready mix concretes for the construction of the new BRASKEM IDESA Etileno XXI plant in Veracruz, Mexico. The plant, which is expected to commence operations in 2015, is the largest petrochemical investment in Mexico in the past 20 years and will produce approximately 1 million tpa of ethylene and polyethylene.
Cemex began supplying concrete, including self-compacting concrete, high-resistance concrete and architectural concrete, for the project in 2012 (for the construction of the foundation) and has now delivered around 80% of the 250 000 m3 required.
“We are very proud to be participating in this massive industrial project in Mexico,” said Juan Romero, President of Cemex Mexico. “This clearly exemplifies the way our portfolio of special products offers building solutions capable of prevailing in even the most challenging projects.”
