The Santos and Praia Grande concrete hubs of InterCement - holding of the cement business of Camargo Corrêa Group -, are serving together the alignment work of the Outeirinhos wharf, in Santos. The renovation, which will double the ship capacity of Outeirinhos, contemplates the delivery of 48 thousand cubic meters of concrete by July 2014.

The current phase of the concrete works is very complex, as the concrete is launched directly into the sea, requiring the use of a mark with hyper-plasticizer admixtures. "Supply has been daily, an average of 80 cubic meters, which has demanded a very fined-tuned work of all areas from both hubs to ensure that the product arrives at the worksite in perfect conditions", comments Reginaldo Cerqueira da Silva, InterCement coordinator for the Baixada Santista region. Both hubs have already delivered 3,500 cubic meters for the site so far.

"To gain this important client, the determining factors were the market’s trust in our company; the fact that we count on brand-new equipment, ensuring greater efficiency and reliability; and, as our main differential, the fact that we are the only company among our competitors to have a 41 meter pump, ideal for this kind of work", Reginaldo says.
