Cemex Rugby Shutdown 2019

During the past months of January and February, the scheduled maintenance shutdown at the cement plant that Cemex has in Rugby (England) after 24 months of operation has taken place. Alfran has a leading role in Rugby in the supply and installation of refractory material.

The installation period was 26 work days with a volume of more than 60 people. The volume of installation of refractory concrete from Alfran has accounted for 87% of the total installed material, a very important part with our system of shotcrete alfranjet. In addition, 47 linear meters of furnace have been repaired and other brick works have been carried out.

The use of the Brokk autonomous demolition machine for the first time in this plant stands out in this intervention, which offers a substantial improvement in terms of safety and performance.
