Rogers City welcomes new eco-friendly technology  | Local News, Sports, Employment opportunities

In 2024, Moran Iron Works (MIW) was awarded a significant contract by SMS group for the fabrication of two granulation basins. These impressive basins, each weighing 164,000 pounds and standing 59 feet high and 21 feet in diameter, play a crucial role in the process of decarbonizing the cement industry through green technology.

The project began in January of 2024 and involved transporting the basins to Rogers City Port using MIW’s expertise in fabrication. From there, they were loaded onto a barge for shipment to their final destination on the Great Lakes. This process showcased MIW’s commitment to advancing sustainable solutions in the construction industry.

The completed Granulation Basin from 2023 is currently being loaded onto a barge at Port Calcite in Rogers City. This project represents a significant step towards promoting environmentally friendly practices in the cement industry and highlights the importance of utilizing innovative technology to reduce carbon emissions and improve efficiency. MIW’s involvement in this project underscores their dedication to providing cutting-edge solutions for a more sustainable future.
