Gardena, CA, USA June 3, 2011 – Temcor is currently constructing three Temcor Aluminum Domes for Madras Cements Ltd. The domes are being built to store limestone at the company’s plant in Tamil Nadu, India. Temcor is the world’s largest Aluminum Dome and cover system builder.

This contract for Madras Cements marks Temcor’s first venture into the Indian bulk storage market and is being fulfilled by Temcor Rollwell Domes, a joint venture company between Temcor, USA and Rollwell, India.

Two of the domes are 112m diameter Temcor Aluminum Domes and the third is a 90m dome, all are attached to 6m-high concrete retaining walls.

“The flexibility of Temcor’s design and erection processes allowed us to meet the plant’s requirement of building the domes around the stacker reclaimer systems,” said Kari Kauppi, Temcor’s sales manager. “Temcor’s well-schooled in accommodating special needs that arise – every dome is custom-designed and built.”

The three domes in India are built entirely of corrosion-resistant aluminum and will be maintenance-free for years to come.

The domes were manufactured at Temcor’s facility near Savannah, Georgia and shipped to the site, ready-to-assemble.

Temcor Aluminum Dome systems for the bulk storage industry are in place worldwide. Temcor has been building aluminum domes and other structures for more than 40 years and has more than 8,000 installations throughout the world in industries as varied as water and wastewater treatment, petroleum, and scientific research. Temcor domes and roof systems for architectural applications are in place as sports arenas, cruise terminals, planetariums, churches, and more.
