PROJECT AT A GLANCEClient: Holcim, Inc.
Non-Hazardous Waste Alternative Fuel System – Holcim – Holly Hill, SC
Holcim added to plant efficiency through a new Alternative Fuel System that replaces coal and gas fuel with Non Hazardous waste fuels. The project included a new deep pile foundation system and material handling systems to transport the fuel to the burner floor.
The most noteworthy portion of the project is at the head end of the main transport conveyor. A new cantilevered platform was designed to extend from the existing Preheater Tower to carry the loads from the large conveyor. Material impact loads, wind loads, and Seismic loads all had to be supported by the intricate design of the platform.
