Project Details

Tank Connection construction crews installed a Barge-to-Truck transloading terminal with a 127’ tall by 41.5’ diameter RTP (rolled, tapered panel) bolted Cement Storage Silo at the Barcadera Port in Aruba. The facility was designed to store and transfer cement from oceanic barges. Prior to the installation of this facility, cement was delivered to the island in large bags, prone to product contamination. Now, 750’ of underground pneumatic conveying pipe stretches from the barge offload point in the Barcadera port into the cement silo.

Tank Connection’s client, ATCO Concrete Products, produces ready mix cement and multi colored specialty blocks and pavers for the construction industry. Their materials are used to build many of the luxurious high rise hotels, parks and beach front shopping areas that are a staple of Aruba’s tourism industry. This terminal will serve ATCO’s plant with cement to support its computerized, state of the art block plant.

Tank Connection designed, supplied and installed the pneumatic conveying piping and the unloading system. The silo cement unloading system fluidized the cement to provide reliable and fast truck fill times, all with full integrated controls and database inventory management. The system is designed to provide accurate product quantities to the plant operations managers as well as directly to the cement suppliers so that daily operations and monthly barge deliveries can be integrated into a seamless, uninterrupted supply chain.
