Storage Domes

Storages involving domes, silos, and bins are one of PENTA’s specialties. Other storage dome providers had suggested this client build their new dome a huge distance from the plant’s existing structures. This location would have been less efficient from a logistics standpoint, and would have required a significant increase in the energy required to transport the cement to the storage dome.

Our expert engineers design innovative, durable, and cost-effective solutions…

PENTA suggested placing the storage dome in a location much closer to this cement plant’s existing facilities which resulted in approximately $1 million in construction savings. Roads did not have to be relocated with PENTA’s placement. The energy needed to run the facility was minimized due to the cement storage dome being placed just a short distance from existing facilities. The end result was this client realized huge short-term and long-term cost savings due to using an experienced single-source EPCM provider like PENTA.

This particular project started from an existing pneumatic transfer pipeline between the finish mills and the truck loadout silos, and consisted of a 90,000 ton cement plant storage dome and materials handling system. The reclaim system was rated at 200stph.
