Cement Additives Storage 40.000 tn, AGET Heracles Volos Plant

Cement Additives Storage 40.000 tn, AGET Heracles Volos Plant

The Project

Steel construction hall in the Heracles plant of the Lafarge Group in Volos, which covers the raw materials of additives for cement production. A project that is required for the storage of around 40,000 tones of additives, as well as the protection of the environment from dust. The span of the frame is 50 meters and the height 22 meters, with a cross section of variable static height and thickness of the web and the flanges, preconstructed in the factory. The frame is characterized by minimal weight and slenderness.

 

The building comprises a total of 11 frames with a distance of 10.35 meters and a total length of 130.5 meters. The frames are mounted on reinforced concrete columns that are connected by a concrete wall 3.5 meters high. The foundations are made on the one side from individual flat foundations and on the other side from micro piles, due to the extremely soft soil from deposits. With micro piles was founded also the rail, on which the stacker and the reclaimer move on the corresponding side of the building, in order to avoid differential settlements. The stiffening of the steel structure in the frame beam was achieved by the use of trusses between the purlins.

 

The construction of the building was relatively easy due to the low weight of the components, the simple arrangement and the lack of welds. The factory carried out detailed tests on the quality of the welds. The installation was done with absolute certainty in a short time and the result was absolutely qualitative.
