100 Jahre Zementi Siggenthal

Yesterday I pointed out a conveyor system to transport rocks to a nearby cement plant. Well, here it is -- a Holcim plant that is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. 

The plant is in Würenlingen, the town across the Aare from Villigen. In fact, the PSI is split across the Aare as well, with half of it in Villigen and the other half in Würenlingen. 

There's an open house at the plant next Saturday. I went to one of these a few years ago and had a lot of fun. If anyone reading this lives in the area and has children, or is simply enthralled by large mechanical objects, I recommend it to them.

The flyer is here:

We have many plants like this but it takes a long time sometimes to get cement when you need it.
