Before shell construction commenced, the pump s supporting tower provided construction support during erection and grouting of the cone s upper band. e tip of the cone was completed a er the pump was dismantled using in-situ concrete construction and sacri cial steel formwork. ICL chief executive Michael Byrne said over its 25 year history, the business has achieved steady rates of organic growth by maintaining a high rate of throughput at its terminal and loading facilities. Silo C is located immediately adjacent to the Port Melbourne terminal s exclusive berth which allows for direct delivery of bulk shipments of cement from Australian and o shore producers. Since 1997, ICL has been a joint venture between Adelaide Brighton Cement and the Barro Group, and most product is sourced from Adelaide Brighton s cement production facility at Birkenhead in South Australia. e Silo C upgrade project has reduced transfer times from ship, to silo, to tanker, to customer, and further improved facility throughput. The precast panels are organised and put in place to form the internal "wigwam" within the silo.
