Central Plant Opening

Central Plant Opening
"Concretos Moctezuma started operating the state of the art manufacturing plant of ready-mixed concrete, now the most important of the country and Latin America."

As part of its consolidation plan and with the purpose of expanding its coverage and meeting the demands of its clients of Mexico City, Concretos Moctezuma started operations of the most cutting edge ready mixed concrete producing plant of the country and Latin America.

Concretos Moctezuma, the third most important company of the concrete industry in Mexico is a world class company and it is socially responsible, committed with the country's development. This has encouraged us to carry out an investment project on new technology that allows us to increase our market share in the metropolitan area of Mexico City.

The project of Concretos Moctezuma consisted in the construction of a new producing plant of ready-mixed concrete, with an initial capacity of over 200 cubic meters per hour.

Always seeking to maintain the quality of produced concrete, as well as high efficiency in procedures without harming the environment, we have established a high standard on the design of this plant, considering functionality, operative practicability, easiness to maintain, as well as reducing environmental impact by decreasing water consumption through an innovative water recycling system for washing mixer units, we also have a rain water collection and storage system, with which we achieve an important reduction in water consumption.

Additionally to the aforementioned technology, some improvements and adjustments have been established to adapt the technology to the Mexican market. All this thanks to the experience of Mexican Engineers that have contributed to make this Central Plant the most cutting edge and environmentally sustainable of Mexico and Latin America.

 

Characteristics

This vertical plant, same as all of Concretos Moctezuma's, is equipped with state of the art technology. Ready mix concrete equipment stand out, it assures a better quality for the user; its thermal and acoustic isolation make this plant one of the cleanest ones today; the storage system in superior silos is completely automated; its concrete recycling system reduces a high percentage of the water demand of the plant; it has a collection and use of rain water system; three unload points, that allow it to produce up to three types of concrete almost simultaneously.

Vertical concrete plants have had success for some years now with multiple applications and success cases all over the world, in very different countries like Andorra, Algeria, Ecuador, United States, Canada, Russia, Italy, Spain, etc.

The main concept is based in a low-cost price, high quality produced concrete and a minimum corrosion of material.

The modular system of aggregate storage enables solutions that help to produce between 150 to 200 m3/h of concrete, a 36 m high production and storage tower with 6 aggregate hoppers, 6 silos and cement storage capacity of 480 tons, a horizontal mixer of 2.5 m3 and two concrete dosage lines, as well as a bucket chain for the transportation of aggregates.

The vertical structure of the Central Plant guarantees a high productive performance and a high storage volume of raw materials. Due to its tower structure, the land required for its construction is minimal.

Additionally to the state of the art technology used for concrete production, the Central Plant has a filling control system that prevents over stock of material, as well as excessive storage that could cause breakdowns.

With the mixing system there is a better quality in concrete production, allowing the manufacture of special concrete.

The urban surroundings where Central Plant is located is a very populated environment, reason why we carried out one of the best improvements, which is the isolation of noise emission of the aggregate elevation area. With this acoustical isolation we will reduce up to 60%  noise emission, resulting in a more silent and friendly environment.

Another improvement has been the dust emission of the production Tower, reducing it up to 95%.

One of the most important supplies for concrete manufacture is water. The use of water for concrete production causes its great demand. We are aware of the situation and we acquired a recycling system for washing water that will allow the reduction of water consumption, as well as the recovery of aggregates. This system has a completely hot-dip galvanized worm gear that is used for separating water from aggregates and a water storage geared with a stirring bar that keeps fine residues in water suspended .

The rain water recovery system will allow to store up to 110,000 liters that can be used in concrete manufacture as well as in the production area services.

The additive system is a redundant system that assures the conduction of 9 different aggregates to the production area, widening the range of concrete we can produce.

Concretos Moctezuma, on its 35th anniversary and aware of  how symbolic this concrete manufacturing plant is for the company and for the city, has decided to break the mold and create a unique design for all the facades of the plant, as well as the silos and production tower. This design has already been present for several years in all the mixer units of the metropolitan area of Mexico City and in a large amount of other business units of the company, nevertheless, it is the first concrete manufacturing plant in the country that will have art works painted in silos and facades that, besides breaking paradigms, will try to make harmonious an industrial with an urban environment by highlighting the characteristics of the area as well as transmitting an integral message of environmental care and sustainability.

With over 8 months of hard work assembling and defining the project, Central Plant is now a reality, a plant created not only thinking of high levels of concrete production and great provisions, but also with the eternal commitment of Concretos Moctezuma with the environment and society, believing in Mexico and the City's growth, as well as the creation and generation of jobs in the area.
