Lafarge Exshaw Expansion

Exshaw, Alberta

On this project, the scope included the erection of a preheater tower, rotary kiln and cooler equipment, as well as structural, mechanical and civil work.

Through the modernization, Lafarge’s production capacity increased from 1.3 million metric tonnes per year to 2.2 million metric tonnes per year.

The economic impact of the plant’s increased production and GDP of Alberta is estimated at $1.2 billion per year. Lafarge’s investment of hundreds of millions of dollars in the expansion will provide long term, well-paying employment opportunities as well as construction material for Alberta.
