The Shurovsky Cement plant near Kolomna receives a new kiln line to increase capacity. In the years from 2007 to 2009 Kottmann GmbH was contracted to design several structures for this new kiln line.

A particular challenge of this project was the first design of prestressed large-capacity silos for cement clinker in slipform construction on the territory of the Russian Federation. For this, the Russian national standards control authority in Moscow first had to be convinced of the technical feasibility. The planning had to take into account the implementation in sections during ongoing operation with various intermediate states.

The central cones of the two cement silos were planned as precast elements and installed in 2 height sections.

Steel profiles and reinforcing steel according to Russian standards SNIP/GOST.
