U-BASE is organizing an excursion to the cement factory and quarry ENCI in Maastricht.ENCI is part of the HeidelbergCement Group Benelux. Heidelberg Group is the 2nd largest cement producer of the world with 740 mines in total and an annual revenue of 15 billion euro.ENCI has three company locations in the Netherlands at Rotterdam, Ijmuiden and Maastricht. Maastricht is the location where the quarry is located on the ENCI site. Here limestone is extracted and processed in their cement factory. The limestone is here excavated from the only mountain the Netherlands is blessed with.
On our excursion day we will visit the quarry and get a tour through the cement factory also a presentation will be given about the work ENCI does, including the mining process and the concrete research they are doing. It will be a complete overview on cement production and technology.
A unique opportunity as it is the only mine in the Netherlands and won’t be in operation for much longer anymore as the excavation operations will shut down later this year.
The travel to Maastricht will be organised by U-BASE in the form of a touringcar. We will leave in the morning and be back in the late afternoon, exact times still to be announced. ENCI will provide us with a lunch.
Maximum amount of participants: 25
Subscribe deadline: 13th March
