Moran Iron Works (MIW), a leading fabrication facility specializing in custom design and engineering solutions, has been awarded a significant contract with SMS group for the fabrication of two granulation basins. These 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 granulating blast furnace slag to help decarbonize the cement industry.

The project began in January of 2024 and involves the utilization of the High-Wire Corridor to transport the basins to Rogers City Port. From there, they will be loaded onto a barge for shipment to their final destination on the Great Lakes. This process showcases MIW’s expertise in fabrication and demonstrates their commitment to advancing sustainable solutions in the construction industry.

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 dedication to providing cutting-edge solutions for a more sustainable future.
