CalPortland opens rapid fill bulk loading facility in Oro Grande

CalPortland has unveiled a rapid fill bulk cement loading station at the Oro Grande, California cement plant. The loading stations 7 and 8 are the final steps in a plant modernisation programme that started in 2008 when the plant was owned by Riverside Cement.

The $58.5 million project included the construction of the finish ball mill and two cement loadout facilities and two distribution silos.

Allen Hamblen, president/CEO, CalPortland, says: “Our engineering staff and the Oro Grande operations team have developed a truck loadout system that is one of the fastest in the industry. The added rapid fill bulk loading stations will prevent long wait times for our customers by reducing the total number of trucks on each loading station, thereby further contributing to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.”
