Kiln 2 at South Ferriby Cement plant has had an operational campaign lasting for 28 months. It was first fired up for this campaign on the hour of the first anniversary of the flood on December 5th 2014.
Since then apart from a very short intermediate outage for repairs it has operated continuously. Usually at the end of any campaign a kiln is tired and being limped towards is outage but this time apart from losing a small amount of bricks at the back end it has kept producing clinker at its design output!
This is a remarkable performance for a kiln thats produced 120,000 tonnes of clinker more than expected. Well done to the team at South Ferriby for keeping it running smoothly for so long.
