CEMEX is a global manufacturer of building materials, including aggregates, cement and ready-mixed concrete. Since 2008, ENGIE has supplied electricity and gas to more than 150 CEMEX UK sites, including its two cement manufacturing plants at Rugby and South Ferriby, and grinding plant at Tilbury.
Cement production is an energy-intensive process, and the company’s energy managers are always looking for ways to improve energy efficiency, reduce costs and cut carbon emissions.
The grinding mills that are part of the cement production process can easily be interrupted with minimal impact on the quality of the end product. That makes them ideal for load management – switching off the mills to avoid high electricity prices.
