The Project

The Hamriyah Cement Company in the Sharjah Free Zone in the United Arab Emirates uses clinker as a raw material and performs cement grinding, storage and packaging. It produces at least 3000 tons per day. The buildings that make it up are:


  1. Clinker silo, approx. 40,000 tones, of post tensioned concrete, founded on a floor slab with piles. The cylindrical shell was made by the slip forming method. The roof, in the form of a truncated cone, is made entirely of steel construction. Particular care was taken to the post tensioning degree, which, among other things due to the large temperature differences between clinker and the environment limits the formation of cracks, as well as on the foundation on sandy soil, with liquefied layers at shallow depths. For this purpose, the mixed plate solution with piles was applied.
  2. The cement mill housing the mill has a special foundation to safely accommodate the dynamic loading of the rotating mill. Its superstructure is made entirely of steel construction.
  3. The two cement silos, each with a capacity of around 15,000 tones (about 70 meters high), were founded on a common foundation slab with piles. These are cylindrical reinforced concrete shells, with conical bottoms and large openings at the base to pass the trucks and silos. The construction of the cylindrical shells was carried out by the slip forming method. Their roof is flat and made of composite construction.
  4. The raw material shed is made of steel on a reinforced concrete base, up to a height of 5 meters. Its foundation is flat, without piles. Conveyor lines required the construction of steel towers with lifting platforms and conveyors. The premises of employees and offices are made of reinforced concrete. The work was completed within two years in the shortest possible time with safety and high quality under the supervision of Greek engineers, with many years of experience in the field of cement factories
