Moran Iron Works Awarded Significant Contract for Granulation Basins that Decarbonize Cement Industry

Moran Iron Works (MIW), a leading fabrication facility known for its expertise in custom design and engineering solutions, has recently been awarded a significant contract with SMS group for the fabrication of two granulation basins. These massive basins, each weighing an impressive 164,000 pounds and standing 59 feet high and 21 feet in diameter, play a crucial role in the process of decarbonizing blast furnace slag.

This new green technology offers superior quality and lower carbon emissions compared to traditional Portland-style cement, making it highly valuable for reuse while reducing the industry’s carbon footprint. The project began in January of 2024 and involved the utilization of the High-Wire Corridor to transport the basins to Rogers City Port. From there, they were loaded onto a barge for shipment to their final destination on the Great Lakes.

The completed Granulation Basin from 2023 is currently being loaded onto a barge at Port Calcite in Rogers City. This project represents a significant step towards promoting environmentally friendly practices in the cement industry and highlights the importance of utilizing innovative technology to reduce carbon emissions and improve efficiency. MIW’s involvement in this project underscores their commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions for a more sustainable future.

Moran Iron Works has been at the forefront of sustainable solutions for many years now. Their expertise in fabrication combined with their dedication to advancing sustainable solutions make them an ideal partner for projects like these that aim to reduce carbon emissions and promote environmentally friendly practices.

Overall, this contract award marks a major milestone for both MIW and SMS group as they work together to create a more sustainable future through innovative technology.
