Construction is underway on Boral Cement’s $130 million new clinker grinding and cement facility at GeelongPort.

Construction works commenced in 2019 to build a new grinding, storage and dispatch facility. Wharf side works will include hoppers and a conveying system linked directly to the facility.

The new facility has been designed to process up to 1.3 million tonnes of cementitious products per annum. The facility will be connected by a conveyor system to Lascelles Wharf, providing substantial discharge and processing efficiencies.

The construction reaffirms Boral’s presence and ongoing investment in the Geelong community.

“Our substantial investment in a new cement grinding and storage facility at GeelongPort will deliver a world class operation, and reinforces our long term commitment to the Victorian construction market. It will have the capacity and operational flexibility to provide our customers with secure supply of a broad range of products that supports their growth”, Ross Harper, Boral’s Group President, HSE, Sustainability, Innovation & Operations Excellence, said.

The facility will allow Boral to increase its capacity to meet future Victorian infrastructure demand, and expand Boral’s product offering to its customers.

It is expected to be operational in 2021.
