Besides cement milling, storage and despatch facilities at PPC's existing clinker producing plant at Dwaalboom, the contract included a multicell storage silo with a combined lift-shaft/stairway tower. The multicell silo is configured to provide five storage cells for cementitious products within a single structure. A large area below the cone houses a loading facility and bag packing plant, with provision made for a second packer unit. The tower containing the lift-shaft and stairway adjacent to the silo gives access to working platforms below the inverted cone and carries services and cement-conveying pipelines to the top of the silo, from where the various products are distributed to the storage cells.
