Alumina Silo No. 8

  • Year: 2010
  • Location: Dubai, UAE


Cleveland Bridge were contracted by EMAL to construct a large Silo for storing Alumina to be constructed at the Dubal Aluminium site in Jebel Ali.

It was 45m diameter and 55m high and the scope of work for Cleveland Bridge was the design of connections, detail drawing, supply, fabrication, painting, delivery and erection of steelwork including the top house with cladding. The height of structure and the site logistics were such that we were required to work in an operating facility which restricted areas on site. This required a very strong proactive safety culture. As the structure construction required a lot of hot work, this was undertaken in accordance with the required safety protocols.

Another complication was the coordination required for the incorporation of the material handling system.
