UK: Construction work has started on a new flood embankment west of the Cemex’s South Ferriby cement plant in North Lincolnshire. New brick-clad walls will also be built around Ferriby Sluice. The project, led by the Environment Agency, has an investment of around Euro14m. The scheme is scheduled for completion by 2021.

“We are delighted to be contributing building materials to construct the new flood defences. In December 2013 floods damaged the plant putting it out of production for over 12 months and causing immense damage to local homes and businesses. It was estimated that over Euro55m worth of damage was caused,” said Piotr Klepak, Cemex Plant Director.
