In 2024, Moran Iron Works (MIW) announced a significant contract with SMS group for the fabrication of two granulation basins. These basins, weighing an impressive 164,000 pounds each and standing 59 feet high and 21 feet in diameter, play a crucial role in decarbonizing the cement industry.

The project began in January of 2024 and involved the utilization of MIW’s expertise in fabrication to produce the basins. The completed Granulation Basin from 2023 was currently being loaded onto a barge at Port Calcite in Rogers City. This process showcases MIW’s commitment to advancing sustainable solutions in the construction industry.

SMS group recognized MIW’s dedication to providing cutting-edge solutions for a more sustainable future and awarded them this significant contract. The basins will be used for granulating blast furnace slag to produce superior quality cement with lower carbon emissions compared to traditional Portland-style cement. This new technology offers high value and quality for reuse while reducing the industry’s carbon footprint.

The project involves transporting the basins from MIW’s facility to Rogers City Port using the High-Wire Corridor. From there, they will be loaded onto a barge for shipment to their final destination on the Great Lakes. This process highlights MIW’s expertise in transportation logistics and their ability to adapt to new challenges in the construction industry.

Overall, this project represents a significant step towards promoting environmentally friendly practices in the cement industry and underscores MIW’s commitment to providing innovative solutions that improve efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
