Lehigh Cement Terminal
Port of Everett, Washington
Owner’s project was to convert an existing alumina ore import terminal for cement import.
The existing system consisted of a dockside mobile ship unloader, dock receiving system conveyors to an existing storage dome, and a dome reclaim system to a rail loading system. The new system improved existing dock receiving conveyors, improved and added dust collection equipment, provided major modifications to the existing storage dome to install an extensive aerated reclaim system, improvements and modifications to dome discharge equipment and reclaim conveyor, modifications and improvements to existing receiving bucket elevator to the existing rail, and replacement of existing rail loading storage bins with new bins with aeration and articulated delivery systems for cement loading of rail. In addition, the reclaim system was added to with additional transfer equipment to a completely new fully automated truck loading system with storage bins and truck scales for two lanes simultaneously. R&W provided electrical power systems design, overall plant automation including integration of multiple vendors and software development and provided compressed air system and piping design.
